34 Degrees Crisps Review & Giveaway **Closed**


 
I have a new company to tell you about that has some awesome snacks that you are gonna love! Have you ever had those waffle cones with your ice cream before? Well, that is exactly what these remind me of. If you love those waffle cones, then you will love these! They are called 34 Degrees Crisps.

They come in several flavors but the 4 I got to try were:

1.) Graham
2.) Cinnamon
3.) Chocolate
4.) Caramel


My favorites were the Chocolate ones and so was Hubby's.  Of course, we are a chocolate loving family, so what can you say?  The chocolate ones tasted just like the waffle cones but in a mild chocolate flavor.  If you are a chocolate lover like us, then this is the one for you, too! This would make a great ice cream dip cookie or one of those cookies that you take two of them and put ice cream filling in between them and freeze it. I bet those would be awesome!

The picture above is not the Chocolate ones but I think what they call the regular. I copied the picture just to give you an idea of how they look. All of my pictures made the crackers look blurry so I ousted  them and used one from their site so you could see the fine details in the crackers. See how they look like they are ridged all around? Then notice the circles in the middle. Don't they look like real waffle cones that have been made into round crisps?

We also loved the Graham flavored crisps as our second choice with Cinnamon coming in third and lastly Caramel.  It was a little too sweet for us but if you love sweet flavored crisps, then the Caramel ones will really make your day.

Here is what I found out about 34 Degrees Crisps:
People always want to know how we got the name 34 Degrees. The answer is Sydney, Australia. Thirty-four degrees is the latitude of Sydney—the city where our company Founder Craig Lieberman discovered his passion for food and wine while attending grad school there.

It’s also where he got his first taste of Australian crispbread, the inspiration for our thin and crispy crackers. In 2003, Craig launched 34 Degrees and began importing specialty foods from Australia. But like many long-distance relationships, this arrangement had its share of challenges. Eventually, Craig’s desire to bring his business and his love of food closer to home illuminated the need to take the company in a new direction.

In 2008, he discontinued his importing venture to become a manufacturer focused exclusively on making 34° Crisps in Boulder County, Colorado.

I love when I can find a company that really gives back to the people and this is one such company. I found out that they recycle and they have a hand in Wind & Energy usage but I love that they are into the Food Bank of the Rockies.

Here is whay they say about that:
Beginning with our first contribution in February 2011, we will make a quarterly donation of 300,000+ crackers to the Food Bank of the Rockies’ “Children’s Totes of Hope” program. Tote bags filled with 8-9 pounds of nutritious kid-friendly food are distributed to children on Fridays to take home over the weekend.

 For many of these children, the totes are their main source of food on Saturday and Sunday. The crackers donated to “Children’s Totes of Hope” will benefit hungry children in Colorado and Wyoming.
