- RW Garcia unveils two new Organic cracker varieties at Natural Products Expo West 2018
3 Seed Artisan Crackers in Organic Lentil with Turmeric and Organic Chickpea flavors
join the delicious lineup of RW Garcia gluten-free Artisan Crackers
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (Feb. 22, 2018) – RW Garcia company, a family owned and operated snack brand is expanding their line of Artisan Crackers with the unveiling of two new organic flavors – Organic Lentil with Turmeric and Organic Chickpea! These gluten-free, Non-GMO, 3 Seed Crackers are making their first appearance at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, Calif. March 7-11, 2018. Samples of the new flavors will be available (while supplies last) at Booth #512 during the show.
The new organic crackers burst with flavor and unique superfood benefits – perfect for better-for-you snacking without compromising the taste and crunch snack lovers crave. Both lentils and chickpeas are packed with protein and when combined with three seeds (chia, flaxseed and sesame) result in a heart healthy, vegan and organic snack. A prominent new food trend, turmeric is often referred to as the “miracle spice” for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant healing properties, and delicious when paired with lentils and white corn.
“Creating recipes that focus on flavor, taste and quality ingredients is key to RW Garcia brand innovation,” said Vice President of Marketing Genelle Chetcuti. “With our new organic crackers we are delivering on the promise of innovation with unique heart healthy and delicious flavors.”
New Organic Lentil with Turmeric and Organic Chickpea crackers join four other RW Garcia delectable flavors: Harvest, Kale, Sweet Potato and Sweet Beet. True to the brand’s legacy as the leading maker of non-GMO corn-based artisan snacks, the crackers incorporate non-GMO corn, veggies and three seeds – flaxseed, chia and sesame. The result? A delicious and flavorful gluten-free alternative to traditional crackers.

- Creamy Broccoli Cheesy Dip by Willowbird Baking
I’ve got your holiday potluck contribution covered. Dips are one of my favorite dishes to make for friends to share, and this Creamy Broccoli Cheese Dip is incredible: so simple to whip up and so delicious.
There’s hardly a combo I love more than broccoli and cheese. Broccoli by itself I can take or leave, but broccoli and cheese has the best synergy. Broccoli cheese soup, broccoli cheese casserole — I’ll take broccoli cheese everything.
So I knew I wanted to create a broccoli cheese dip! This recipe combines cream cheese and mayonnaise with sautéed onions and garlic, broccoli florets, and sharp cheddar cheese before the mixture is baked to golden bubbly perfection.
I served this Creamy Broccoli Cheese Dip with RW Garcia gluten-free artisan crackers in Harvest flavor. RW Garcia products contain no additives or preservatives and only the highest quality, premium ingredients. The Harvest flavor is a mixture of blue corn and pumpkin, which went perfectly with this delicious cheesy dip! I also think the Kale flavor or any of the RW Garcia tortilla chips would pair nicely.

- Maple Brown Sugar Brie – by Willowbird Baking
I love baked brie as an appetizer. Whether it’s Brie En Croute with Figs & Rosemary or a Honey-Drizzled Cranberry Brie Pastry Braid, I’m here for it. Sometimes Mike and I just pop a wheel of brie into the oven for 10 minutes on 350 degrees F and eat it plain. It’s probably my favorite cheese.
If you’re looking for a super simple brie option that’s dressed up for the holidays, this Maple Brown Sugar Brie is the perfect choice. It tops a wheel of melty brie with a brown sugar, maple, pecan mixture before broiling it to caramelized perfection.
I served this Maple Brown Sugar Brie with fresh apple slices and RW Garcia gluten-free artisan crackers in “Harvest” flavor. RW Garcia products contain no additives or preservatives and only the highest quality, premium ingredients. The Harvest flavor is a mixture of blue corn and pumpkin, which went perfectly with the sweet brie! I think the Sweet Beet flavor would also pair nicely. [Get the recipe!]

- Pear, Pistachio and Truffle Honey Goat Cheese Ball
The tree is purchased. The stockings are hung. Christmas music is perpetually blasting through our house. And I’m ready to crank out as many holiday-inspired small bites as I can.Normally when I throw parties, I like to serve a full meal, but when it comes to the holidays I’m really in to eating a little bit of everything, and my menus reflects that. Parties usually consist of a few dips, some of our family favorite sausage rolls, a fancy meatball of sorts, a wild card finger food and always always cheese and crackers in some way, shape or form.

- Warm Cheesy Garlic and Kale dip
You know a recipe is a success when it’s the first to disappear off the buffet table (twice) at a party. When kids are coming up to you asking when there’s be more of that “cheesy green dip”, and grownups are checking the fridge to see if there’s enough kale to whip up a another batch mid-party, the dish is for sure a keeper. And if the recipe happens to be full of veggies, it’s even more of a winner! [Read More].

“Because this dip is seriously so yummy and easy to make (score!) and I know you’re going to love it. If you can chop vegetables and turn on the oven, you’re halfway there. Pin this recipe and serve it up for the holidays alongside RW Garcia’s Gluten-Free Artisan Crackers for an appetizer to remember.”
