Martha Stewart has her very own triscuit.
(Of course she does.)
In this news story, it was reported that for a limited time only her special crackers will be in stores.
I'll go ahead and share my favorite quotes from the story. I've highlighed them:
"Though Stewart has countless cracker recipes of her own, she told The Huffington Post her partnership with Triscuit was her first experience working with a mass marketed cracker manufacturer. "It was a long and interesting process," she said, and after a lot of trial and error, she settled on coconut and sea salt, a flavor combination she thought would be "habit forming."
I'm not sure if fine-tuning a cracker recipe is "interesting", but I would imagine "long" is accurate.
And it sort of makes me uncomfortable that Martha wants to get me started on a snack that's "habit forming". (Is this bad peer pressure? I'm leery. Martha?)
"The 73-year-old lifestyle mogul describes the inventing process pretty plainly: "It was my idea. I like salt and I like coconut. ... I thought that was a flavor of cracker that would be savory and sweet." It certainly is. The cracker tastes like it was cooked in coconut oil and then salted; the sweet flavor isn't overpowering, nor does it have that "hint of sunscreen" taste that many coconut-flavored foods can't seem to shake."Of COURSE it was your idea, Martha. Of course it was. Aren't all of the ideas yours?
And sunscreen? Huh? Sunscreen might smell of coconut, but I've been under the impression this whole time (my entire life) that you weren't actually supposed to taste sunscreen.
"I like salt. My daughter likes salt. We all like salt," she said.I need this woman in my life.
Not because I like salt, but because she just breaks down complex theories so clearly.
We all (pretty much) do like salt.
I will write about The Martha forever.
That woman is the best.
And I'd like to try that habit-forming triscuit. Someone buy me a box and save it for me?
