Look, my beautiful mom hailed from Sweden, so really it should be in my genes to adore Wasa crackers. Truth be told, I find almost all of them extremely 'meh.' The one exception is a magical hard cracker called Frukostknäcke (breakfast cracker) and is only available in Scandinavia. Bummer for me.
|These have some unknown-to-me tiny amazing white seed that makes my heart cry a little bit that I don't live in Sweden|
For a fun interactive snapshot of a typical Swedish breakfast, click on this Wasa link. (Hint: You won't find any Fruity Pebbles!) They just seem to be missing the herring and the amazing "filmjölk" a life-changing, fabulous soured yogurty-milk that tastes like a love-child of buttermilk and Greek yogurt. Another reason to move to Sweden.
Speaking of Sweden...
|Biscoff's 2nd cousin|
And since I'm tooting Sweden's horn, I may as well point out that I've been eating Anna's Ginger Thins (known as pepparkakor in Sweden) from the time my first teeth appeared as a baby. For my taste buds, all-the-rage-Biscoff cookies are very similar, only they seem to be more expensive, and not quite as ginger-y as Anna's. I have found Anna's at numerous supermarkets, Cost Plus World Market and Amazon on the cheap.
|Great. low calorie stats: there is even a tiny bit of protein and fiber in them!|
Good paired with...
|Love me a good, low-cal cheese 'product', don't you?|
|Another shockingly tasty faux cheese item- it really is bluecheesy in flavor!|
|Top with ham and (wilted?) arugula|
Q: Have you tried this Wasa cracker? Are there other great crackers I need to discover (aside from the incomparable Akmaks)? Any other good faux cheeses to share? Are you crazy about Biscoff cookies? Have you tried Anna's?
