This has been a big year for Milton’s! We’ve been busy in our bakery crafting a fresh new look for our crackers. In addition, we’ve baked up some fresh and delicious new cracker flavors. But don’t worry, we didn’t change our original recipes…they are still the same delicious crackers!
When we set out to create a new look for Milton’s, we wanted to come up with something special. We wanted our packaging to better communicate our craft baking heritage and what we believe in. We came up with many different designs, and asked a lot of people – including some of you, our consumers – what they thought. We realized who better to represent our company than a baker? So we asked an artisan wood-etch illustrator to design a special baker to pay tribute to our many hard working bakers who use our special recipes, natural ingredients, and serious skills to bake our signature fresh breads and crackers.
While we improved the look of the packaging, we also took steps to improve the things you can’t see that we feel make a difference. Our new cracker boxes use 35% post consumer fiber, and are printed with vegetable based inks on printing presses that consume less energy and water – all of which is better for the environment.
We don’t believe that healthy food has to be bland and boring. Instead we at Milton’s go against the grain to deliver nutritious baked goods that are artisan-crafted for surprisingly delicious flavor. Our recipes are blended with the perfect combination of grains and all natural ingredients, and are small batch baked so you can enjoy delicious, wholesome goodness in every bite. We carried this into our new cracker flavors. These new and unique flavors are great complements to our already delicious assortment of crackers, and deliver the superior taste you’ve come to expect from Milton’s. Here is a quick description of each. Expect to see them soon in your neighborhood store.
Corn Bread Flavored Baked Snack Crackers: This flavor has already developed a cult following among our friends and families here at Milton’s. These light, savory, and crunchy crackers have a delicious corn bread flavor that is extremely addicting. We love to pair them with chili at football parties, and one diehard Milton’s fan even puts them on her ice cream!
Whole Wheat Graham Baked Snack Crackers: We’ve taken a healthier twist with on the classic graham cracker. Baked with Whole Wheat flour, a gram of fiber per serving, and a hint of honey – you can feel good about snacking on these delicious crackers. Great for mini s’mores, ice cream toppings, and dipped in peanut butter.
Crispy Sea Salt Gourmet Crackers: Looks can be deceiving. Our Crispy Sea Salt crackers are deceptively simple, yet deliciously addicting. With their lightly salty and buttery flavor, these crispy crackers are actually the lowest sodium crackers that we bake! Sea Salt is more flavorful than regular salt, so you get more taste with less sodium. Great paired with your favorite soups, cheeses, and even chocolate for a sweet and salty flavor.
We are excited to bring you these new flavors, a new and improved look, and the same great taste you have come to expect from Milton’s. With 2010 coming to an end, our plans for 2011 are even more exciting! Stay tuned…
