I Try It So You Don’t Have To: Crabbers Crackers Lemmonex November 12, 2008 Bizarre, I Try It So You Don't Have To, Reviews 12 Comments I have become a human garbage disposal for my friends. My friend Irish let her husband buy these crackers, but quite reluctantly. She thought they looked gross. The only reasonable compromise was they had to be handed off to me after he tried them. The lengths I go to for my friendships.Â Here is what I thought of my friend’s scraps: Smell: I was quite excited. They had the distinct scent of Old Bay, though not quite so strong. I like Old Bay! This could be good. Texture/Appearance: Look how cute they are. They look like crabs…but cuddly crabs that won’t pinch you or your little toes as you swim innocently in the ocean. (Sorry, I had an incident when I was a little girl that I haven’t quite gotten past.)Â Dark red and black flecks from the seasoning cover these little guys. They have the expected crunch of a cheese cracker. Taste: The Crabbers (doesn’t that sound dirty) taste like Cheese Its covered in Old Bay…except Old Bay past its prime.Â It is like a weaker, sadder version of Old Bay. There is a touch of heat to these as well, but nothing that lingers. Final Verdict: Sure! Why not!Â I don’t know if I was hypnotized by the cute little crab shape of these crackers, but I am totally on board.Â For the first time in weeks, I didn’t immediately pitch this food product in the trash.Â That has to count for something. *************************************** Lemmonex writes almost daily about food, life, and her trail of broken hearts at her blog, Culinary Couture.

Reply Lexi November 12th, 2008 isn’t there a way so you can fix so the whole post comes in the rss feed instead of just a part of it? kinda defeats the purpose of rss Reply Eick November 12th, 2008 Lexi – I set it so that the whole post doesn’t come through on the RSS feed, just part – I’d rather people come to the site so that they are counted in traffic numbers etc. I will give some consideration to switching to a full RSS feed….. Reply Eick November 12th, 2008 Are these anything like the flavor of the Utz “Chesapeake Crab” chips? Reply suicide_blond November 12th, 2008 Lem.. you have to try “boiled peanuts” and “peanuts in Pepsi” a few old NC faves that folks always say sound gross!! xoxo Reply Eick November 12th, 2008 Suicide blond – I have LOVED peanuts & coke since I first was introduced to it at a BBQ place in the town where I went to college. I still drink it from time to time. Reply Lemmonex November 12th, 2008 Wait, you drink peanuts and coke? Also, Eick, never had the crab chips, but I would imagine they are similar. Reply Editz November 12th, 2008 I first read that as “Cheapskate Crab” Reply LiLu November 13th, 2008 Second Blond on boiled peanuts… Reply Eick November 13th, 2008 Hell yeah you drink the peanuts and coke. It’s delicious. Sweet but a little bit salty, and you just kind of eat the peanuts throughout the sipping. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
