Orton Bros. Cookie Buttons and Vermont Common Crackers Review

How many of you love cookies? Now, how many of you can eat just one cookie in a sitting? Probably not very many. I know I sure can't. That is why I was delighted when I found out about Orton Bros. Cookie Buttons, because they are full of yumminess and only 120 calories for 10 cookies!!! Yay!

The Ortons: Gardner, Eliot, baby Leo, and CabotIn 2006, the “boys” as they are referred to around VCS, established Vermont Common Foods to celebrate their passion for wholesome, natural, traditional snacks and recipes. At their rural bakery they produce the iconic, one-of-a-kind Vermont Common Cracker, made continuously since 1828 and an ongoing kitchen staple of chefs and gourmands for generations.
What started out as a passion and a desire to prove out a concept they were certain had tremendous upside potential, has turned into a solid and growing business apart from the legendary Vermont Country Store but not without a meaningful, if unintended, synergy with it. The ethics and values correspond and complement one another, making the journey somewhat less harrowing. They work hard to build both brands and keep up with demand for their extremely popular Orton Bros Cookie Buttons: super crunchy, mouth watering, low in sugar and calories, and very hard to stop eating! Today, they have fans all over the country who marvel at their amazing flavor and incredible crunch.

Like I have said before, I am usually not a fan of the crunchy cookie, but I am starting to change my mind on that one. These are crunchy cookies, but they have so much flavor and that melt in your mouth factor, that I couldn't stop eating them!! The great thing is that you don't have to stop at even one or two, you can eat 10 cookies for only 120 calories. My favorite cookies were the peanut butter. Oooooh, they were good!  They also have flavors like:  Purely Maple, Chocolaty Chocolate, Spicy Cinnamon, Snappy Ginger, Zesty Lemon, and Double Vanilla.

I also love that their ingredient list is very short, with only baking ingredients that I also have in my cupboards. They are all-natural and have no trans fat or corn syrup of any kind. Plus, they are vegan!!  You can buy the cookie buttons here in packs of three boxes.

They also have their historic Vermont Common Crackers. These historic crackers were first made in Vermont in 1828. Over the years, nationwide, they became the standard symbol of the country store. No rural store was complete with out a cracker barrel near the cheese counter. To read more of their history, click here. Today they offer a healthier, yet authentic version of the original Vermont Common Cracker. Today's crackers have no hydrogenated oils or trans fats and are void of artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

These are also very crunchy and have a unique flavor. My hubby likes to just snack on them, but I think they would be best in soups or chowders. They come in original and cheddar flavors.

Give these crackers and cookies a try! Enjoy!
