Guide Review - Gourmet Wafer Crisps by Kitchen Table Bakers
First of all, they pass the dip/spread test. They are strong enough to support dipping into guacamole, spinach dip, etc., or as the base for canapes. Ham spread tastes great on them!
The flavors are quite good, though I think it's good to bear in mind that since they are made from a whole food they are going to be somewhat variable in flavor -- after all, a cheese is going to reflect the varying conditions of the milk, etc. My favorite flavors are the Italian herb and the jalapeno. I must admit that to my taste, the garlic was a little bitter, both on the garlic and the "everything" crackers.
The price is going to seem high to most of us, I'm afraid. I found prices everywhere from $4.99 (Netrition) to $6.99. I do try to remember that when I make crackers from cheese myself, it costs a fair amount more than making them with flour.
Gourmet Wafer Crisps are available in various stores in the U.S. as well as online. List of where to find them on the Kitchen Table Bakers Web site They also have come out with "minicrisps" which will be more widely available soon.
