Think super thick, crunchy, fresh, flax seed crackers loaded with flavor and nutrition -- that's Flackers by Doctor in the Kitchen. Developed by Allison Levitt, M.D., a holistic medical doctor, and Donn Kelly, a seasoned food marketer, they set out to create raw snacks that would be high in Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber to support optimal health. I first found them in Chicago (see previous review here), but now they are available in DC and I'm just giddy over it.
I ran into Donn and Allison at a food expo and they gave me samples of their new flavors -- Sun-Ripened Tomato & Basil and Cinnamon & Currants. And I was introduced to their new packaging, which highlights the fresh ingredients they use in a much more colorful box! Not to mention that now they come in resealable bags, which makes eating just a few that much easier!
The new flavors were as good as I expected. The sun-ripened tomato and basil had bits of tomatoes and basil throughout and though I gobbled them up with hummus pretty quickly, they'd make great appetizers topped with vegan sliced cheese, tomatoes, and basil. Yum!
My favorite one was the cinnamon & currants though. These were delicious - a great breakfast cracker to take to places where you are sure there will be no vegan options.
I topped mine with this awesome raw cashew cacao hempspread by Wilderness Poets -- the combo was mind-blowing. Think raw cacao spread on cinnamon flax seed crackers with currants mixed in -- soooo good.
Flackers are great for so many reasons, but most importantly, they are so thick that you can use them for dipping, top them with fresh spreads or veggies for appetizers, or just eat them right out of the box. To get some for yourself, click here.
