New Jacob’s Cracker Crisps awarded perfect score
Thai Sweet Chilli flavour Cracker Crisps pick up top marks from The Grocer
21 July 2015: The savoury snackers at Jacob’s have taken the cracker aisle by storm with their new Cracker Crisps, after being awarded a perfect score of 50/50 in one of the industry’s most respected taste tests.
Described by The Grocer as “a big hit,” an overwhelming 90% of those who trialled the new Thai Sweet Chilli flavour hoped to pick up a packet in the near future, with over half planning to add them to their monthly shop.
Commenting on the results, Ted Linehan, Director of Savoury Brands at United Biscuits, said: “With Jacob’s Cracker Crisps, we set out to develop a product that delivers the exceptional taste and texture today’s consumers are looking for from their snacks. We couldn’t be happier to see such a warm reception from one of the industry’s top critical voices, and can’t wait to hear from more consumers as they try the new products for themselves”.
