SPOT.ph Roadtest: Flavored Crackers

Find something new to nibble on

 

(SPOT.ph) The cracker, humble thing that it is, has probably saved you from starvation on more occasions than you can count. It’s actually typically square or round but in this great nation of ours, the image of the rectangular baked good inside a plastic wrapper has been immortalized. What more can you ask for from a snack?

 

Flavor, that’s what. Salted treats are great but when you’ve gone through hundreds or maybe thousands of them, one can’t help but feel like a little bit of zest and spice can’t hurt...right?

 

Here’s a roundup of flavored crackers that make this fast food (as in food eaten during fasting, get it?) more delightful!

 

Magic Flakes: Onion Chives 

Price: P44.50 / 28g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Na-eh. It has a strange aftertaste that just doesn’t feel right. There’s a mild hint of sweetness that also seems off.

Thoughts from the testers:

• "It’s not the kind of cracker that makes you reach for more...so maybe it’s a great deterrent against eating."
• "This tastes nothing like onion. Or chives."

 

Skyflakes: Onion & Chives

Price: P44.50 / 25g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Yay. It kind of tastes like fried rice. The cracker itself is thick, so it’s heavy and makes you feel full.

Thoughts from the testers:

  • "It has a hint of garlic. Which is a bit strange because it’s onion and chives."
  • "I like their effort to add some texture with the little green things that make a crunch when you chew."

 

Honey House: Sour Cream & Onion

Price: P39 / 22g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Nay. But maybe it doesn’t want to be a gentle snack. It just wants to assault you with incompatible  flavors...it’s so confusing.

Thoughts from the testers:

• "It’s like a delivery van of crackers crashed into a spice factory and this is the unfortunate aftermath."

• "I think I need to rethink some of the decisions I made in life."

 

Sunflower Crackers: Onion-Garlic

Price: P28.25 / 170g

Yay, nay, or meh? Yay...unless you want to kiss someone after. The force is strong in this one.

Thoughts from the testers:

  • "I think I need to brush my teeth now."
  • "This one’s good. It’s not too intense but the seasoning is there."

 

Skyflakes: Garlic

Price: P44.50 / 25g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Yay. There’s no mistaking the garlic.

Thoughts from the testers:

• "Oh wow, hello garlic."
• "You can probably kill a vampire with this."

 

 

 

Honey House: Cream Cheese & Garlic

Price: P39 / 22g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Meh.

Thoughts from the testers:

  • "It’s sweet. Is that why it’s called Honey House? Do they make it with honey?*"
  • "It’s not bad but...er, where is the garlic? And the cream? Or the cheese?"

* Honey is not listed as an ingredient.


Magic Flakes: Cheese

Price: P44.50 / 28g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? Depends on how you feel about processed cheese. Or powdered cheese, for that matter.

Thoughts from the testers:

• "I feel like I’m eating chips. But I’m not. I’m so disoriented. Hold me."
• "It’s orange. Orange, guys. Look at how orange that is."

 

 

Sunflower Crackers: Cheese

Price: P28.25 / 170g

Yay, nay, or meh? Depends if you like gnawing on American Cheese squares.

Thoughts from the testers:

  • "It’s exactly what fake cheese tastes like. I love it."
  • "It has cheese flavor but I have  serious doubts about this ’with real cheese’ claim on the package.* It’s pretty good though."

* Real cheese is not listed as an ingredient.


Sunflower Crackers: Pizza

Price: P28.25 / 170g

Yay, nay, or meh? Yay-ish. The only questions left to ask is: what flavor is it?

Thoughts from the testers:

• "I feel like I want to keep eating just so I can tell what kind of pizza it is."
• "It ain’t pepperoni or hawaiian for sure. But I like it."

 

 

Sunflower Crackers: Chicken

Price: P28.25 / 170g

Yay, nay, or meh? Kinda meh. Not chicken-y enough, but not bad.

Thoughts from the testers:

  • "If I had the courage to lick the oily pan where chicken was just fried, I feel like this is what it would taste like."
  • "Guys, eat it after the pizza-flavored cracker. It’ll chicken up!"

 

Magic Flakes: Chocolate

Price: P44.50 / 28g x 10

Yay, nay, or meh? A quick yay if we pretend we’re young school children going to recess. It’s chocolate!

Thoughts from the testers:

• "It’s like powedered chocolate forced into the shape of a cracker."
• "I want to say it’s sort of bland but meh, it’s hard to go wrong with chocolate."
