“Crown Crackers are perfect to nibble on while you wait for your dinner.“
Crown Confectionery has a long tradition of producing some of the best sweets and snacks in Korea, and these little saltine crackers epitomize this perfectly.
The history of Crown Confectionery dates all the way back to 1947.
Mr. Yoon Tae-Hyun, a baker and entrepreneur from Seoul, loved biscuits and everything savory. With limited options available he decided to open his own bakery which would later be known as Crown Confectionary.
Despite a whole host of challenges facing Mr. Yoon and Korea during the ’50s, his company never stopped churning out biscuits. It must have been a real treat for people living in Seoul during the war as food was rationed.
By 1960 Crown’s hard work and determination paid off. The locals were addicted, Seoul was hooked and Korea was flooded with Crown biscuits. Crown state that in the early 60s’ every person in Korea bought at least fifty biscuits from them. How much of this is true I can’t say, but what it shows is that Crown has a long tradition of producing quality snacks.
Since the Golden Age of Biscuits in 1982, Crown’s rise to the top has been unstoppable, and it continues to impress me, and the nation with its finger-licking snacks.
So what are these tasty snacks from Crown that I keep talking up?
Well one of them is the saltine cracker:
Crown Saltine Cracker: Appearance
The crackers come in a white cracker box weighing approximately 56g. Each box consists of 3 little packets with 6 mini sized crackers inside.
It’s not your average size but in a more miniature form. Perfect to dip into your favorite stews, soups, and dips.
How Does the Crown Saltine Cracker Taste?
Well for a cracker they are good. Not too salty, or too dry; crunchy but not too delicate.
Crown have crafted a delicate balance.
Unlike some saltine crackers when you open the packet and all of them are in tiny bits, these Korean crackers, albeit a little flaky hold up well. I usually find that if I struggle to open the packet or tear it too hard you end up crushing one or two, but generally every time I opened them they were intact.
I’m not sure how you like your crackers but I think the perfect cracker is Jacobs cream crackers. Due to their size, I love being able to pile them up with all sorts of cheeses and condiments. You can do the same with these, as I did here, but you can’t fit as much on.
They can be addictive.
These Crackers are small, easy chew and feel great. You can finish the packet very quickly. This then leads you onto the next packet, and the cycle carries on until the last box is finished and you are peering into the tube hoping for one more to fall out.
Disappointing or Delicious?
Light and low in calories, Crown crackers are the perfect snack for someone on the go. Overall you can’t go wrong with one of these packets and for this reason, they are a great choice to buy.
