34 Degrees, the maker of all-natural, wafer-thin crackers, 34° Crisps, was created by people with a profound love of food. Made from only a handful of natural ingredients, 34° Crisps are a great-tasting and endlessly versatile companion to cheeses, meats, fruits, spreads – and a world of pairings that can turn a snack into a delicious meal. They were created as the perfect companion to the world’s favorite cheeses, but the truth is, fans love them paired with just about anything, and straight from the box, too. The light crisps are available in six savory flavors and four sweet flavors.
