Palm-oil crackers are few and far between in shops, and then not that tasty. Cradoc’s Savoury Crackers are made in the beautiful Brecon Beacons and are free from palm oil, very tasty and ideal for vegan cheese! The ingredients are locally-sourced then smashed into crackers, and sold in sustainable packaging. The flour is from a local co-op and even the spices are from a community store to support the Gurkha community.
Never give leftover crackers to garden birds or wildfowl, as they could choke (also don’t give stale or mouldy bread, not buttered crackers as the fat smears on feathers, affecting waterproofing/insulation). Keep these crackers away from pets, due to unsafe ingredients like salt (also toxic to birds and wildilfe), garlic and onion.
This company bakes crackers and nothing else, so they are expert at it. The crackers have unopened shelf life of 9 months (the charcoal ones are six months) and the bakery is indie-owned by the local baker-lady and Chief Cracker Muncher! The range (bar a couple of cheese versions) is all vegan-friendly and includes:
- Oats or Sea Salt
- Beetroot & garlic
- Chilli ginger & garlic
- Spinach & celery seed
- Pear & Earl Grey
- Lemongrass Coconut Chilli
- Peppercorn, Fennel & red onion
