awesome crackers in a can. from malaysia. note the fine print...'Biskut Cap Ping Pong.' huh? well i don't know what the fuck's up with that but whateva. does sound catch-ey...
the point is this is a delicious cracker. until my first Hup Seng cracker experience i equated 'cracker' with 'mediocrity.' ritz, saltines, you name them. the ones in the supermarket. they all suck. then there's the triscuit by nabisco, a fucking abomination. they're what americans add to another mediocre dish hoping to transform the resulting mixture into something less mediocre. "...mmm, can't wait to smash up these saltines into my campbell's tomato soup..."
the hup seng cracker is good enough to eat on it's own. the short ingredient list is very un-american and the layman will have no problem recognizing what's in the cracker, 10 ingredients. flour and oil being #1-2, and 'full cream milk powder', sugar, salt, yeast. yes, the 'oil' is palm. not a healthy oil as i understand it's highly fat saturated. and those environmentalist dudes say that the palm oil's popularity comes at the cost of deforestation in indonesia and habitat loss for the orangutan. that's a bummer. boycott this cracker because of palm oil? not me.
