Tale of a cracker

Awhile ago when I ate at Jason's Deli, I noticed that they had some interesting-looking crackers on the salad bar, and I tried them. I loved them! They were Dr. Kracker Pumpkin Cheddar crackers. They're interesting--very hard (a couple of reviewers at Amazon said they were like eating concrete), but really tasty, I thought. So I looked for them, and found that they're really hard to find.

A couple of stores in my area carry them, but not all the time, and they're very expensive. They have them at Amazon, but you have to buy a lot at one time. Which is fine, I guess, but I hate to make that big a commitment.

I remembered that they used to have some similar crackers at Target in the produce aisle, and I remember wondering if they were any good, but not willing to buy a whole package to find out. And of course, once I started looking for them again, they weren't there. So I contented myself with eating them once in awhile at Jason's, and buying a box here or there if I saw them.

Then today I was at Target, and they had them again! I gasped when I saw them! They're Target brand (Market Pantry?) and they didn't have the Pumpkin Cheddar, but they had Sunflower Spelt, and they're almost exactly the same. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to say that they're any different at all from the Dr. Kracker brand. I bought two bags, because of course I wanted to try them first and be sure they were the same. Since they are, I'll go back tomorrow and buy any that they have left. SOOOOO happy about this!
