Maple Brown Sugar Goldfish Crackers #MixMatchMunch

Once upon a time, my day job had me in a small satellite office in the North West part of Metro Atlanta. The office didn’t have a restroom on its premises, nor did it have a vending machine or a water fountain.

What it did have though was a group of guys and gals that LOVED food! To eat it, to share it, to give it! Sometimes because of the holidays, but most times, just because.

Some days, I’d walk in to find a Hummingbird cake in the coffee area with an “eat me” sign on it, and some days, it would be a plethora of Goldfish® Crackers scattered all around the coffee machine with a “help yourself” sign on them.

And then there were the random bags of Spiced Nuts – cinnamon brown sugar, honey cardamom, maple chili – each one so titillatingly tasty I had a hard time sharing them with my daughter when I bought one of those bags home.

Recently, my daughter and I were reminiscing about those bags of spiced nuts, when she suggested we should give out gifts of spiced nuts this Christmas instead of cookies, and I couldn’t help but agree!

But, why did we have to wait until December to enjoy Spiced Nuts?!

As I was about to make us a batch of Maple Brown Sugar Spiced Nuts, I realized we didn’t have any nuts, but what we did have a was a Multi-pack of Goldfish® Crackers that I had picked up from Walmart earlier.

As I adore the salty crunch of Pretzel Goldfish® Crackers, I figured I would bake them (instead of nuts) with some maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom and see how they turned out.

And guess what? My daughter grabbed a handful of those Maple Brown Sugar Goldfish® Crackers as soon as I grabbed them out of the oven and disappeared into her room.

She appeared again as soon as I was done taking these pictures and she grabbed the rest of these Maple Brown Sugar Goldfish® Crackers and said they were too good for her to be sharing them with me!

Your workplace totally sounds like a place that I would be so happy at. All of those snacks!! But no restroom? Okay, that might be where I draw the line though. In any case, I love that you came up with the idea to glaze these crackers! I bet the combo of salty, savory and sweet is so amazing! I can almost imagine crunchy on these guys and being so unbelievably snack-happy. ;) Shashi, your very last photo just made my stomach rumble. Just sayin'. Hope you're having an awesome week my friend! xoxo

Wait wait wait... you didn't have a restroom on the premises of your work??? That is just all sorts of wrong. It's a good thing people brought snacks because no restrooms, water fountains or vending machines could have lead to rioting in the street. ;) Anyways, these goldfish are GENIUS!! Seriously, Shashi, you are always SOOOOO creative!!! I love spiced nuts, but using goldfish pretzels sounds amazing!! LOVE that maple brown sugar coating! I bet these are crazy addictive!! I'll take at least 12 bags.. because a girl's gotta eat. ;) Cheers, lovely! xo

I like this brand; however, I've seen only savory crackers. The sweet "goldfish" didn't make its way to Ontario which is sad. But I bet your crackers are much better the bought ones (What a flavor!) so next time don't hesitate to make 5 trays of the crackers - two for your daughter, two for me, and one for you (because we aren't greedy):)
