Think "Ritz Cracker"...11 of 14 people found this review helpful
I had no idea what to expect with these so after buying a case (6x #10 cans) I decided to crack one can open to see what I thought. We love em! It essentially 2 to 3 times the size of a ritz cracker, looks like one, and tastes very similar as well. It's light, crispy, and not overly hard.. which is what I had expected. I'd highly recommend for use with your emergency stash of peanut butter, and they're great for making little sandwiches as well (ham, turkey, cheese, etc). I highly recommend!

Great Concept - Needs Better Shipping7 of 8 people found this review helpful
I just bought 8 of these cans, because who wants to bake if it becomes bad out there. Will be busy doing other things. However, I noticed in moving them to put on shelves it sounded as if there was a lot of breakage in there, sounded like bread crumbs. I think in the future it should say fragile on the box and packaged a little better in the box. I am tempted to open one to see how bad it is. But I still like the idea of 20-30 years.
From The Ready Store:
Susan, we tested shipping cans all around the country when we started selling this product and we noticed that there was going to be some breakage so what we did it is communicate that 70 crackers come in a can but we put in 74 that way if a few get broken up you should still get 70 unbroken crackers. Of course the broken ones still taste delicious! Hope this helps.

Better Than Ritz1 of 1 people found this review helpful
These crackers are larger than Ritz and better tasting. So many uses.
Better than Expected.0 of 1 people found this review helpful
I expected a hard dry disk These are actually very good.
They will go great with the SF Soups, but are good to eat on their own.
Needs packaging improvements
The product itself is great....Love the taste and texture. It is a great addition to our storage. HOWEVER, your packaging greatly needs improvement! Of the 70+ or so crackers in my can, only 58 were in one piece. The rest arrived in crumbles. While there is corrugated paper on the inside around the perimeter of the can, there is none to support the individual stacks of crackers. Thus, the huge breakage. All commercially packaged tins of cookies use corrugated dividers to protect their cookie stacks. Please consider using this system to improve your packaging. While it is appreciated that you put extra crackers in each can in case of breakage, in my case, including those extra crackers, my breakage was at about 20% of the contents. MUCH to high! I would have to know you've made changes before I could recommend or order again. ...Thanks for giving the chance to provide feedback. I otherwise love your products!
An unexpected hit with the family
We purchased these for a filler in our pantry. A quick snack with zero preparation, these Pilot Bread Crackers are a good size, pair well with peanut butter, cheese, or cured meats, and are filling. Large in size and flavor and still have that "real food" quality that sometimes is lost in food storage. Buy 7 cans so you can open one and store the other six.
Can't have enough of these in your cubbard!
We frequently order these Pilot Crackers to our orders with the ReadyStore. It is a great way to add the staple of bread and is very versatile.
Great product and good value
I just got a pouch of these crackers and had with beef stew and made an amazing meal and very filling instead of bread they would also make a good snack alone or with peanut butter. I will be ordering more for our food storage.
The kids love them
We opened a can to do a taste test and the kids loved them. It will be hard to keep them from snacking on these delicious crackers.
Reminds me of ritz crackers which my family loves with cheese and soup that can also be bought here :) awesome!
good bread alternative
I have not opened these, yet. I purchased them to have for emergency meals, as an alternative to bread, if the power goes out.
I purchased them because of all the reviews stating they had a buttery, almost Ritz cracker taste. What could be bad about that?
When I received the box, yesterday, I lightly shook one of the cans to see if they had all turned to shipment crumbs. It did not sound like there were any crumbs in there at all. I would say the packaging must have been pretty good.
Pilot crackers are a great addition to our pantry because they can be used as bread for sandwiches, in recipes, and as snacks. We like them straight out of the can.
A great bargin of an important food.
Pilot Bread Crackers round out my emergency food pantry. Can be used as a meal extender, or light meal with your canned cheeses, or my homemade jam.
Great addition1 of 1 people found this review helpful
I just started adding food items to my readiness supplies and bought a few cans while they were on sale. I opened up one of the cans and have to say that breakage was minimal and the taste and quality is very good and better than I expected. I've been enjoying eating them with peanut butter for breakfast on days when I'm too busy to cook. Highly recommend as a simple addition to your food supplies.
Fantastic flavor ... glad I tried them
Today, my urge to taste the pilot crackers got the better of me and I opened my container. I think they are better than any cracker/biscuit I have purchased (and actually ordered another container). Great product, great flavor and super fast shipping with this company.
We enjoy eating them .18 of 32 people found this review helpful
We eat a can of them and then list them for our next purchase. We like them with soup and especially with cheeseballs. They are convenient to use as a bread substitue too.
Great with Chowder
Did anyone else grow up with Crown Pilot Crackers? My grandmother’s Maine family clam chowder recipe (and everyone else’s from those parts) required them, and I was heartbroken when Nabisco stopped producing them. Just rediscovered them made by Saratoga Farms on your site and immediately ordered them. My husband John had never had them but instantly bonded. Yummmmmmm.
Just got it
Wow , these things are not that bad. I was afraid they would suck the moisture out of your mouth but nope, they were fantastic!!
Great product19 of 37 people found this review helpful
This is a great product for convenience and for emergencies. When I was young my grandfather would eat pilot bread crackers plain, with peanut butter, with jam or apple butter. He would always fix one for me. We would see who could make the loudest crunching noise and laugh at each other. These are very good and take me back to my childhood. They are packaged well and came to me without any damage. I'm glad I found these and will continue to buy. I like to keep a can open and keep a few cans for emergencies. Thanks for carrying these!
