Farmer’s Pantry snacks are hitting the market at exactly the right time to make a difference. According to a recent 490 person Nielsen poll, most said they "enjoyed" eating all the time. After enjoyment, the second most common reason Americans cite for eating a snack in the past 30 days is "to satisfy hunger” in between meals.1Another 30,000 person Nielsen poll cited that 90 percent of people surveyed said that they snack at least once a day, and a full 45 percent of people actually replace at least one regular meal a day with snacks.And finally, according to analysis by Euromonitor, sales of snacks account for 40% of the $370 billion U.S. packaged food market and are set to grow 2% annually through 2019, thanks in large part to millennials who eat more snacks than any other group.3

Farmers Pantry Cornbread Crisps are truly the best thing since sliced bread!” said Josh Chaitovsky, co-founder and CEO of Farmer’s Pantry. “We believe it’s high-time for snacks to resolve the trade-off between being wholesome, made from natural ingredients and delicious. But to be truly sustainable, we also pledge to give back to our American farmers, and to hungry Americans in need, by supporting important charities such as Veterans Farm, Farm Aid, and The Family Farm charities.”

My Thoughts

I'm a southern girl, but didn't grow up eating a lot of cornbread because my parents were northerners and never really ate it. When I became an adult I tried it in different varieties and have found a few recipes I really enjoy. I looked forward to trying these cornbread crisps from Farmer's Pantry.

I got to try 3 flavors: honey butter, original, and jalapeño. I didn't expect for jalapeño to be my favorite because I'm not a fan of jalapeños, but this was really good. There wasn't much of a kick, so don't expect spicy. The jalapeños just seemed to add a unique flavor that the other two flavors didn't have, causing me to gravitate toward that flavor more when enjoying Farmer's Pantry for a snack.

I liked the honey butter favor too. It gave a sweet flavor and almost reminded me of sweet cornbread. I think if I could have warmed these crisps up, the flavor to sweet cornbread would have been spot on. I also enjoyed the original flavor too. It was slightly salty, but not like when eating chips.

I liked these crisps. The texture and thickness. Perfect for snacking on when you want something crunchy but could also be used with a favorite dip.
