Review - Kinnikinnick S'moreables Graham Style Crackers

Kinnikinnick S'moreables Graham Style Crackers have a recipe on the box for making S’mores. So after buying Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows and Hershey bars, I was eager to try them. Upon opening the box, I was disappointed at the small size of these crackers and that every cracker in the box was broken! I think the crackers aren’t packaged well because this is the only thing in my order from glutenfree.com that was broken. The S’mores recipe says to break the crackers in half, so it didn’t matter that mine were already broken (although some pieces were too small to use).

I made some in the oven as the recipe says and some in the microwave (10 seconds). If using one large marshmallow, I recommend cutting about ¼ off the marshmallow before cooking, since these crackers are small, especially when broken in half. Surprisingly, the ones made in the microwave tasted better. The graham cracker didn’t taste as good after being heated in the oven. I like the holes in the graham crackers, where chocolate can ooze through when eating.

Although they are much smaller than gluten graham crackers (Nabisco), the taste is similar. These crackers held up well when I spread Jif peanut butter on them. I really enjoyed them with peanut butter. Eating these yummy S’mores reminded me of Girl Scout camping trips when I was a kid.
Update - Jan. 27, 2009 - I purchased another box of these at a local health food store and am happy to report that most of them were not broken. Only four were broken this time.

I saw these at my local HFS this week. I was afraid I wouldn't like them - pre-GF I could eat an entire box of the Nabisco ones in a sitting (and lets not talk about Girl Scouting!)...I think I may stop in there this weekend and pick them up. Thanks!!!!

I had seen these on their website, but had a feeling I'd be better off making my own.

Bummer they were all broken!
