Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps & a $100 Giveaway!


This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps

Some friends of ours invited us over to watch football. Of course, me being me, I had to bring some sort of snack along. Finger sandwiches wouldn't do. No, these aren't women at a tea party, these are manly men screaming at the television set every time their team moves up the field. No, I needed something more grown up, no brownies or cupcakes for this crowd.

Pepperidge Farm has come out with these fabulous snack crackers, Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps, in two flavors, Four Cheese Medley and Four Cheese Italian Herb. Four Cheese is made with Aged Cheddar, Asiago, Romano and Parmesan, while Italian Herb is seasoned with flavorful herbs and spices. Well, I happen to know, living in Wisconsin, that the guys here love cheese, bingo! The perfect cracker for Cheeseheads!

These are natural, preservative-free snacks, made with an artisan blend of real cheeses golden baked to bubbly perfection on top of a thin, crispy, crunchy cracker. Perfect!

These crackers are perfect topped with a cream cheese mixture or a slice of fresh cheese. Pile the crackers into a bowl and you'll be surprised and just how fast they disappear! Make sure to have a couple extra boxes handy so you can keep replenishing the dish.




Real Taste, Real Crunch, Real Goodness. Naturally, the best things in life are real.

  1. For game day, we are generally a chips and dip sort of family, but have expanded to include items such as shredded bbq pork nachos and fried pickles. I generally do fruit and cheese, like pear and stilton, or crackers with cream cheese and pepper jelly. My husband and his friends prefer the nachos ;) Thank you for this opportunity!
