Explorer’s Bounty Tribal Stone Yuca Crackers
I recently had the opportunity to try Explorer’s Bounty Tribal Stone Crackers, made from yuca and 100% certified organic. These are gluten-free crackers with no added sweeteners and fat free.
Thanks for Dawn for sending these to me for free and for providing me with the following information on Yuca (which I’ve learned is not the same as yucca):
“A starchy tuberous root, Yuca (also known as cassava) has earned the distinction of being the third largest source of carbohydrates for human food in the world. The root contains significantly more fiber content than a potato.”
I sampled four flavors: original, cinnamon, garlic and onion. I think they are best paired with toppings or dips as the crackers themselves are pretty subtle. I enjoyed the garlic and onion varieties with brie and roasted red pepper. Meanwhile, I put peanut butter and a drizzle of agave nectar on top of the cinnamon variety. I dipped the original flavor in hummus.
One thing to note is that the crackers are pretty crumbly. It’s wise to have a plate beneath your mouth as you bite lest crumbs and toppings fall onto your shirt. This is just speculation, of course 😉
Here’s another cool thing about this product:
“Tribal Stone Crackers are manufactured through a Manción partnership. A region of Hispaniola, in Manción charcoal is used as the primary energy source. There, however, the facility that produces the Explorer’s Bounty line of Tribal Stone Crackers has converted away from charcoal energy. Instead, it harnesses natural and organic sources like those obtained from Macadamia nut shells. It is this organic process that is used in the manufacturing of Tribal Stone Crackers. Good for you, good for the planet.”
Overall, I really enjoyed these Yuca crackers and would definitely buy them in the future.
