While I was at the Summer Fancy Food Show in NYC this summer, one of the brands I met was Mary’s Gone Crackers. First of all, LOVE the name! And I was interested to learn more because I wasn’t really familiar with this brand. I’m so glad I did, because now I see their products everywhere (in my local grocery stores and in Costco!) and LOVE them. This is healthy snacking made easy.
Mary’s Gone Crackers products are not only unique and delicious, but you can eat confidently knowing you are putting REAL food into your body. There’s no junk in any of this. It’s gluten-free, dairy free, organic, vegan, whole grain, and more. You can truly taste the goodness in every bite.
And this is Mary! I met her at the show in NYC and got to talk to her personally about her brand and the love that goes into her products. As a result of her Celiac disease, she took her love of cooking and baking to a whole ‘nother level and created products that everyone can enjoy and feel good about eating and feeding to their families.
Their newest products are these Minis, a little bite sized snack that kids love! Actually if I’m honest here, my husband ate them faster than the kids could. They’re delicious, perfect for packing with lunch or for a snack on-the-go, and great after school. I personally loved the graham flavor the best.
Kids like the cute shapes as as mom I absolutely love that I know I’m feeding them real food, real ingredients here, no processed junk. We took them to the beach with us and snacked away on the sand!
Mary’s Gone Crackers also makes pretzels and these are delicious! I really like the sea salt flavor, and there are other varieties too. Chipotle Tomato, anyone? Yum! One thing that I really like about all of the Mary’s Gone Crackers products is that they pack a real crunch and are a substantial snack. Some crackers kind of crumble all over the place and don’t stand up to a good dip. These are solid snacks, for serious snackers. 😉
Of course Mary’s most loved products are her crackers! This is what she started her business with and there are a bunch of great varieties. I asked Mary when I met her this summer, if there’s no flour in these crackers, how do you keep all these ingredients like seeds and quinoa held together in a cracker? She told me that’s their secret. So it’s a mystery, but they’ve mastered it!
While my Mom was visiting recently we made a delicious dip to snack on that’s perfect with Mary’s Gone Crackers. The flavors are so good together and as I said above, these crackers and nice and strong and won’t break off in the dip.
Here’s the recipe for this easy White Bean and Beet Dip. Throw all the ingredients in the food processor and it’s DONE!
- 15 oz. can white beans, rinsed and drained
- 2/3 cup jarred or canned beets (just eyeball it, a little more is fine)
- 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 clove of garlic (roasted is best if you can!)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp. salt
Put everything in the food processor and pulse until smooth.
Garnish with parsley for some color (optional).
Serve with veggies and crackers.
I like the Herb Crackers the best, and my family seems to like the Black Pepper Crackers. Look for Mary’s Gone Crackers products in the organic aisle of your food stores (check here to see where to find their products near you), and look at Costco too. They had a great deal on a crackers last time we were there. Look on Amazon too!
