Tucker's Natural Crackers

“Thumbs Up For Mr Tucker”

Fresh, wholesome, full of flavour and crunchy are all words that flew across the Rattling Reviews table as we discussed our experiences of trying Tucker’s Natural. From children to adults all were impressed with the gourmet and multi fibre cracker range, feeling that is was a snack or treat that was soft on the palette and

Tucker’s Natural is a product of the Tucker family who have had over 30 years combined experience in the industry. Made in Australia their Natural Gourmet Cracker, Dessert Biscuit and Multi Fibre Snack ranges are 100% natural, handmade, yeast and preservative free. Sourcing only the freshest and finest local raw
ingredients the Tucker’s provide biscuits that are wholesome and flavoursome right down to the very last bite.

We tested our taste buds on the Capsicum & Feta, Tomato & Basil, Four Cheese & Chives, Caramelised Onion, Caramelised Onion & Cheddar and Rosemary & Rock Salt. These were tried with various different dips to suit the individual tastes. The shape and size of the crackers left an impression on our testers allowing for easy grasping and dipping. Those testers who were parents were especially impressed with the elongated biscuits as the thick bottom and thinner top allowed little hands to hold and suck the biscuit without dropping. They also felt confident in providing these biscuits to their children knowing they were providing a healthy snack alternative. For myself personally the fact that these biscuits are yeast free was a huge winner. Being allergic to yeast I know of the hardship caused by trying to find a suitable product that can be eaten by yourself yet served to guests whilst providing taste and appeal in appearance.

From biscuit to packaging we salute you Mr Tucker. With a clear viewing window and descriptive easy to read labeling Tucker’s Natural presents nicely on the shelf and is easy to find. The biscuits are packaged inside a clear plastic dish that is then wrapped in plastic seal to keep them fresh. The outer box is sturdy, coping well with transportation from shop to home. Upon arrival at our office all our biscuit packages still presented as new with no crumpling of the packaging or product. Tucker’s Natural provide clear information on what you, the consumer, are purchasing. We found they provided all that they claimed.

The saddest moment for us when doing this review was when we found that Tucker’s Natural could not be purchased in our local area Before realising this all reviewers where eager to make Tucker’s Natural a regular item in their shopping trolley with staff voting that Tucker’s Natural become a regular member of our weekly meetings. Our enthusiasm for trying the dessert range was soon flattened when we realised this would not be.

Then along came Sam Tucker announcing a solution to our problem.

“We will be selling our entire range direct online by the end of July at www.tuckersnatural.com.au,” says Sam “Our products are available in supermarkets and leading gourmet producers across Australia - if they are not in your local retailer please demand that they stock them”

Tucker’s Natural products can be mainly found in Foodland and IGA stores, with some independent stores becoming stockists. We would love to see all chains of grocery stores Australia wide supporting Tucker’s Natural. To Support Tucker’s Natural is not only to support a product that provides a healthy cracker alternative but is to also support the Ausbuy and Australian made logo.
