Doctor Kracker: The Newest Thing in Flat Breads. Plus a Giveaway

crackers15

Tuna Melt with Roasted Red Pepper Strips

Are they crackers, or flatbreads? Either way, they’re delicious! They’re crunchy, so tasty, and as an added bonus, good for you! They’re organic and loaded with great things like whole wheat flour, spelt, oats, bran, flaxseed, nuts and seeds. And just look at their Allergen Statement:

Dr. Kracker's allergen statement:

All of Dr. Kracker's suppliers of flour, grains and seeds have provided our bakery with letters that certify that their products are uncontaminated by peanuts or tree nuts. The only allergens that Dr. Kracker lists are wheat and milk. Further, our bakery is certified organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

So for those of you with nut allergies—these are the crackers for you!

Ham and Muenster with Hummus

We’ve been munching on the crackers for a few weeks now—George from Dr. Kracker was very generous and offered to send us some to try, after we told him how much we enjoyed his crackers. We found a box on the shelves at TJ Maxx, of all places, and couldn’t resist. And once we tried them? We fell in love. There’s no other way to describe it. They’re super crunchy and they taste great—and it almost makes you feel guilty, like you’re indulging in bad for you snacks or chips. But wait! They’re good for you !

As I write this, I’m munching on my current favorite flavor, Pumpkin Seed Cheddar. Not only are the crackers good for you, but they’re so versatile and go well with so many things. We’ve had them with dips, with peanut butter and jelly, with hummus and cold cuts, and also tuna melts. To see their other flavors, click here. They also have some new flavors you can see here!

George and crew at Dr. Kracker have been extremely generous and offered to give some of their amazing crackers/flatbreads to you, my readers!

The five Original Flavors served with hummus and Tabouleh.

Ten people will receive a box including eight packs of crackers. One of each of the five original flavors, and one of each of the three newest flavors. How cool is that? And seriously, when you taste them, you’ll wonder where they’ve been all your life.

Look at all of the seed-filled goodness!

And if you’d like to try them in the meantime, you can click to see if they’re available in your area. You can also buy them online. And if they’re not in your area, ask your local stores to carry them!

What do you need to do to enter?

1. Visit the Dr. Kracker site, check out the flavors, and let me know which one(s) you’d love to try.

2. Come back here, and leave a comment with a valid email address! If you don’t leave an email address, or it’s invalid, I’ll choose another winner. Seriously. I’ve had to do that already, and it wasn’t fun.

3. You must have a physical address, no PO boxes, please.

4. You can get an extra entry If you Twitter about the giveaway. Come back here with the link to your Twitter post (you must have that!!) and post that link in a second comment for an extra entry. To get the link to your Twitter post, click under your message where it says "less than _____ ago" and that will take you to a page where you can copy the url of your message.

So everyone has at least two ways to get entries. Limit two entries per person.

I’m waiting to hear back from George as to where they ship, and will update this post as soon as I hear back from him. I’m assuming it’s US only, but I will clarify that.

The contest will run until next Monday, April 13th. I’ll choose the winners on that day. Good luck! I want everyone to try these flatbreads!

Yeah they are available in this town (which is actually shocking considering I can't ever find anything here). Going to have to make a drive this weekend to get some.

i am all about the sunflower cheddar ~ hard choice between these & the pumpkin seed, but sunflower seeds are my absolute fave! :))

Tiff said...

I think that the pumpkin cheddar crackers sound divine! With a little jam or cheese, hey maybe both, these would hit my snacking spot!

April in CT said...

We are cracker, cheese and hummus freaks around here so I must find these for us to try..ASAP.

These look seriously addictive! The Klassic 3 Seed and the Seedlander really caught my eye --I'm all about the seeds. This may require a slip into Whole Foods on the way home this afternoon. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. Email is thsorrell@gmail.com

Melanie said...

Either the pumpkin seed cheddar or the sunflower seed cheddar...I love me some cheddar. I've never seen these before, but would LOVE to try them! I clicked on the link to see if they're available in my area, but since I live way out in the boonies, I'm at least 200 miles away from an opportunity. Oh, but wait, there's always amazon, right??? :) Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin flavored, so I would have to try the Pumpkin Cheddar flavor.

Either the pumpkin seed cheddar or the sunflower seed cheddar sounds wonderful!

Karen @ Mignardise said...

These look seriously delicious and nutritious! I'd go for the spelt, after recently writing about spelt bagels on my blog. Love it!

finsmom said...

Dr Kracker rocks! Pumpkin Cheddar is our fav too! So healthy and so good!

(Don't enter me in the giveaway though as we have already been kindly sent some samples!)

Lisa said...

Those look amazing! I would say I'd love to try the sunflower cheddar. They all look delicious. I have to go back now and see if they sell them in RI!

Caleb said...

Oh alright, I gotta go with the Klassic 3 Seed. Honestly, not because I think it would be the best flavor on its own, but I think it would pair better with some Mendocino Jam or Mendocino Mustard from here on the West Coast.

I've seen these at my local market but never picked them up. The Sunflower Cheddar looks tasty.

Carolyn G said...

I would love to try the Seedlander

Leslie MacDonald said...

Oh my gosh, they all sound good, but both the Pumpkin Seed Cheddar and Sunflower Seed flavors sound the best to me!

Grace said...

although i don't like to discriminate, i have to say that the klassic 3 seed looks fabulous. there's something so appealing about whole seeds embedded into a cracker. :)

Gabrielle McD said...

Anything with pumpkin seeds is fantastic in my opinion. They all sound great! I'm running right out to Stew Leonard's in Norwalk, CT to get my own! Gabrielle McD

I'd love to try the Klassic 3 Seed, but they all sound great. I just checked at my health food market, and they sell these at 4.69 a box!

Anj said...

They have these in our area and I really like the Klassic 3 Seed with some Laughing Cow Cheese -- a great healthy snack. I would like any of the flavors and the new ones look great too. Thanks for the opportunity for a great giveaway!

Either of those cheddar flavors work for me. I want to try with my new favorite Trader Joe's hummus: cilantro.

Darshana said...

Hands down the Pumpkin Cheddar flavour!

Sylvie said...

Pumpkin Seed Cheddar seems like it would be tasty to munch on plain. But the original might be better to spread with toppings.

Cris said...

Oh please can you ask them to launch this here in Brazil? My mouth is watering here...

A New England Life said...

Here's my twitter link: http://twitter.com/ANewEnglandLife/status/1504271176 Hopefully I did it right.

The crackers I think look the most enticing are Pumpkin or Sunflower seed Cheddar, or the one of the new flavors, Apple Crisp and Fire Roasted. Yum!

Phew! I was struggling with all I had to do on this comment, Elle! ; )

I would LOOOOOVE to win these!!!! I think the flavors all look amazing...but if I had to choose just one I think it would be the pumpkin cheddar. YUM. But really, they all look great. My email is lolalainie@gmail.com

I think I'd pick the Three Seeded Cracker. I have to say though that the Cherry Semolina Crisp that is coming looks like it would be tasty.

I just read your post and began to obsess over a half a tuna melt that I'd saved, but I can not find it any where. I'm now hungry for a tuna melt and worried that my saved half is going to show up six months from now jammed behind the ketchup jar.
BTW-- I've been away from food blogs for a while. You've been doing some AWESOME stuff.
