"Everything"-Seasoned Arepa Crackers at Craize
Yes, 2020 threw a little bit of everything at us. Including this, from Miami-bred and -headquartered Craize: an "everything"-seasoned arepa cracker, loaded with salty-meets-oniony-meets-garlicky flair. The new offering, as well as existing Craize staples – including crackers flavored with sweet corn, roasted corn, guava, and coconut – are available locally at Publix and Whole Foods and at nearly 3,000 other food purveyors nationwide. All Craize crackers are made in the company's Little River manufacturing plant and are gluten-free, kosher, and vegan. Where a flimsy cracker or frail tortilla chip may crumble upon scooping, a Craize cracker stands firm and carries a hint of sweetness. gocraize.com. Available at Publix and Whole Foods Market.
