Brackers: Raw Food Snacking for Indecisive Eaters
"Crunchy, like crackers -- filling, like bread!" The Daly City-based raw food company Amai Health Products takes the portmanteau to new heights with Brackers.
Tamara Palmer Brackers' cardamom-kissed sesame apple fig variety.
The snack features soaked and often sprouted seeds for quick, clean energy that doesn't lead to a crash or what the company describes as a sluggish "food fog." There are three flavors -- tostada, sundried tomato and chili chipotle with corn, and cardamom-kissed sesame apple fig -- and the latter stands head and shoulders above the rest with its complexity of sweet and aromatic flavors. All possess a crunch that invites fiendishness/gluttony and is hard to achieve in a raw snack.
Truthfully, these taste a lot more like crackers than bread, but the claim that they're filling is also accurate and the cardamom variety would make for a worthy accompaniment for preserves, cheese, or other typical bread toppers. Find 'em at Other Avenues.
