  • by Maine Crisp Co

In their Olive & Za’atar Crisps, Maine Crisp Co. takes a familiar cracker format and gives it some extra savory flair. The briny bite is thanks to pieces of Kalamata olive speckling each petite crisp. The satisfying crunch comes from buckwheat flour (yes, they’re gluten-free!) and a smattering of almonds and sesame. A hint of aromatic za’atar make these a natural pairing with Mediterranean-inspired Meredith Dairy Marinated Feta, but the flavors are versatile enough for any spread.

“These are not heavy on the za'atar but delightfully savory. They make the perfect accompaniment to a creamy feta like Meredith Dairy’s and an antipasto component like olive tapenade.”

  • Maine Crisp Co. uses buckwheat as the base for their crackers. Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat—it's a flowering plant related to rhubarb whose seeds can be ground into flour.
  • The buckwheat flour used in these crackers is certified gluten-free, and the crisps are produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility.
  • Buckwheat more closely mimics the texture of wheat than the typical components of gluten-free crackers like rice or corn. These crunchy crackers satisfied many gluten-loving staff members at Murray’s.
  • Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend that typically contains dried oregano, thyme, or marjoram, sesame seeds, and sumac.
  • The Olive & Za’atar crisps are the most savory option among Maine Crisp Co.’s offerings, though there is still a touch of sweetness from honey. 
  • There’s a reason why Maine Crisp Co.’s crackers pair so well with cheese—the company is the brainchild of cheesemaker Karen Getz.
  • After years of baking bread, Karen and her family moved to Vermont where she pursued dairy farming and cheesemaking, going on to win several awards from the American Cheese Society.
  • A move to Waterville, Maine, inspired Karen with the quality of Maine-grown buckwheat, and Maine Crisp Co. was born.
  • All Maine Crisp Co. products are wheat-free and gluten-free, crafted with buckwheat from Bouchard Family Farm in Aroostook County, Maine.
