Did you grow up in the 70's? If you did, then you remember Chicken in a Biskit crackers. When your parents brought out those rippled edged crackers with the ranch-eque flavor seasoning, you knew there was going to be a PAR-TEE! This was the era when adding French onion soup mix to sour cream to make a dip was going all out. The snack food companies hadn't really gotten into gear with flavors. Oh, there were BBQ potato chips but salsa and chips hadn't penetrated the group conscious.
If you wanted a flavored chip, Chicken in a Biskit was your go to move.
I bought some recently, and discovered something that blew my mind.
- Oyster crackers – Contain no oysters
- Goldfish crackers – Contain no goldfish
- Girl Scout Cookies – Contain no girl scouts
- Nips – Don't get me started on why something called a "nip" is square and has a hole in the middle instead of being round with a bump in the middle.
But Chicken in a Biskit?
Yes, there is "dehydrated cooked chicken" in Chicken in a Biskit!
Seriously! Look right over there. Dehydrated Cooked Chicken! There's particulated dried chicken matter in/on the crackers. I know it says it in the name, and all, but like I said, you shouldn't trust the name for the content.
Did you know about this?
I know people will describe snake or rabbit as "tastes like chicken". But never once when I bit into the zesty goodness of a Chicken in a Biskit snack cracker did I think, "Hmmm… Tastes like chicken."
Not that this is going to stop me from eating them, mind you, I just found it startling.
