Jovan's Pure Nutrition - Crackers

My focus this year is on the purest of ingredients and products that contain the same. Jovan's Pure Nutrition was founded by Jovan herself after a long battle with colon cancer. Through her journey, she realized the healing power of foods and became passionate about giving her body the fuel it needs to heal and thrive.  Her crackers are made of pure seeds, vegetables, and seasonings. And most of the ingredients sourced are organic.

These crackers are bursting with flavor and I mean that both in a good and bad way. All four of the flavors of crackers are sharp with strong flavor, which makes them great for pairing with spreads, but not so great for eating out of the bag as you can only take so much of the strong flavor. But, don't get me wrong--the flavor though strong, is delicious.

The Garden Pesto, for example, gives you a whopping taste of pesto at first bite. Loaded with sunflower seeds, flax seeds, garbanzo bean flour, pumpkin seeds, spinach, and spices, you get a great blend of spinach and basil with just the right amount of garlic.

While all of the flavors have similar ingredients, they each have a uniqueness to them as well. The Taste of Tuscany adds tomatoes and bell peppers to the mix as well as balsamic vinegar and I found them to go well with my bruschetta topping.

The Spicy El Paso is made with tomatoes, red peppers, onion, garlic, and Mexican spices. I enjoyed it with a spicy red pepper hummus.

Then there is the Zesty Tomato that had a (you guessed it) super strong tomato taste, which went well with my baba ganoush, an eggplant spread. I loved this one!

Although they are dehydrated, they are not raw because they are dehydrated above the universally accepted raw temp of 118-degrees. But, because they are dehydrated, you will notice they aren't too hard or crunchy, but still have just enough crunch to satisfy the palate.  They retail for $5.99 per bag, but you can buy them cheaper on Amazon here.  So, if you are looking for a healthy snack and lots of goodness in a cracker, I think you'll be pleased with Jovan's. Just be sure to pair them with a hearty topping.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that, in no way, influences my veracious opinion.
