Crackers and cream cheese have long been a favorite at our house. Plain old crackers, and plain old cream cheese.
But for you, something better. Something sweeter. Something one step above.
This week, I opted for Triscuit crackers. They’re just better than a plain old cracker. They’re all wheaty, with texture and flavor. And they just beg for interesting toppings.
You can put practically anything on them and they taste awesome.
I bought some of the whipped cream cheese. I like this kind because it is so easy to spread, it’s perfect for crackers. Then I spooned on some crushed pineapple and a little pinch of coconut, and voila! The Tropical Cracker Topping was born.
On a recent trip to California, I dipped my toes in the ocean, and promptly realized just how long it had been since I had been to the beach. I had forgotten the smell, and the feel of the sea breeze, and the sand in my toes.
It’s an experience I would love to have more often, but living two states away from the ocean makes it a bit difficult.
The pineapple and coconut remind me of that. The beach. The pier. The sand. The breeze. It actually makes me wish I was back there right now.
I love that Triscuit is more than a plain old cracker. There are tons of ideas out there for toppings for Triscuit, so if you’re looking for more ideas, check out their Pinterest boards, their Instagram, or their Twitter feed. (And remember, the suggested serving size is 2 crackers.)
