Vermont Common Crackers are the original “cracker barrel” crackers. Since 1828 they’ve been a staple in New England country stores, stored in a wooden barrel next to the cheese counter and sold by the scoop.

Despite the name, there’s nothing common about these crackers—in fact, The Vermont Country Store is the only company still making them—and there’s really no other cracker like them. They are crunchier and slightly drier than most crackers today. That’s why they keep so well, and travel without crumbling. In the old days, they were a staple of New England farmers, western ranchers, prospectors, even soldiers.

Vermont Common Crackers were the invention of two Vermonters who baked three days a week using the family horse to turn the special machinery. On alternate days the same horse pulled a wagon delivering to country stores, boarding houses, and railroad depots for shipments out west. Today we still make them the same way—except that we’ve eliminated the trans fats to make them even healthier. We even use the same machinery! The horse is retired, though.

You might be inclined to think common crackers are bland, especially compared to crackers and chips today that are covered with brightly colored flavor powders. But the mild, agreeable flavor is the whole point. It’s what makes Vermont Common Crackers a perfect compliment to all kinds of cheeses; they enhance the cheese’s flavor and creaminess instead of competing. They are also fine for soups and spreads. Some people even use them to cleanse the palate after a glass of wine—pretty fancy!

Our original flavor Vermont Common Crackers come in both Regular and Bite Size. The Regular ones are big and thick, almost a biscuit. You can enjoy them the way old-time Vermonters do: split them open, spread with butter, and toast to a golden brown. The Bite Size ones are smaller but still substantial; five or six will do for a bowl of soup. Regular Size Cheddar Cheese crackers are also available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Crackers! My favorite way of eating these crackers is with a slice of aged (at least 5 years) cheese on them. The crackers are also good with soups. I think that I like their taste because potato flour is one of the ingredients.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back to my childhood As a child we were consumers of what used to be called St. Johnsbury crackers. We ate them in soup, as crackers and milk, and the real treat, split and toasted under the broiler with butter and/or cheese on them. Those crackers were a good deal larger than the current but it was nice to be able to find them again. I was disappointed to see the current cracker no longer available in my local market and I find that ordering through the mail to be more expensive and not as convenient for me. But I still enjoy the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I know what men want! While reminiscing about food we ate as kids and at our grandparents, a fellow I work with commented about not having any Common Crackers from the VT Country Store in quite some time. Since I give him a little remembrance at Christmas I ordered right away. They came faster than St Nick! He was thrilled. Just don't tell him I ordered 2, because I kept one for myself! There is nothing like Common Crackers.
