November 3rd is National Sandwich Day, and we’re taking on a different type of sandwich: sandwich crackers.
From our perspective, sandwich crackers (photo #1) get pushed into the kids’ snacks category, even though they’re tasty fun for everyone. We rarely come across them at our local news stands or supermarkets.
In fact, the penultimate time we thought about sandwich crackers was some 20 years ago. We were at work, starved for a snack, and the concession’s Ritz peanut butter cracker sandwiches seemed a better option than a candy bar.
More recently, Lance contacted us about their cracker sandwiches (photo #2), and our eyes opened at assortment they sent. The category has evolved beyond peanut butter. We became big fans and believe that these snacks deserve adult attention.
Before you shrug and pass them by: If you like peanut butter and cheddar crackers, try them. If you prefer cream cheese or jalapeño cheddar cheese on a regular cracker, there are snacks for you, too.
Take a look at this lineup, which includes some better-for-you options on whole grain crackers:
The line is certified kosher by OU.

Even more recently, we discovered…
They call themselves snack bars (photo #3): a layer of nut butter sandwiched between two white cracker layers, enrobed in chocolate (photo #5), in a bar shape (photo #4).
Conceptually, they combine the idea of a candy bar (with excellent chocolate coating) with the nut butter of an energy bar and scrumptious cracker crunch.
We know runners who eat them at race time and for general snacking. We don’t run, but we sure do snack.
The Organic Cracker N’ Nut Butter Snack Bar is available in three flavors
We’ve been buying them by the dozen at HoneyStinger.com.
