The Lady politely asked me this morning why I had not reviewed Beecher’s Crackers from Kurt Beecher Dammeier, creator of my most beloved cheese, No Woman? Suffice it to say, I reminded The Lady that she bears responsibility in this area; but somehow, it fell upon deaf ears (and she accuses The Man of having “selective hearing”… that’s like the pot calling the kettle black…but I digress).
The gang at Beecher’s makes fine crackers and two of them are favorites around the manse.
This is a one-inch square cracker, just perfect for a slice of No Woman or any other fine Beecher’s cheese. It is buttery and crisp and doesn’t get in the way of the cheese flavor and yet is able to hold its own…
Now this one is the cat’s meow. In addition to being buttery, this cracker is also nutty, which might account for the name including hazelnut…
If you’re not careful, you find yourself with a serious jonz when it comes to Beecher’s Crackers.
There is a new Beecher’s available but alas The Lady has kept it from me: Beecher’s Flagship Crackers. She promises in the near future I will be reviewing these as well.
I give the Original 3 Paws out of 4 Paws and I award the Hazelnut 4 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).
Beecher’s Crackers are available in 5 ounce bags and bear the tradition Beecher’s Logo Picture on the front. You can purchase them at The Lady’s kiosk and most other reputable cheese shops and specialty grocers where you find Beecher’s Cheeses.
