Crunchy and buttery with a healthy dose of garlic, these croutons taste like they are fresh out of the oven.
These Butter & Garlic Croutons are available at Petit Amuse.
What I Think:
I received a sampling of these croutons in my Petit Amuse box for October. The little sample pouch holds six croutons, just enough to determine whether they are something you’re going to want to get a full-size package. Since there were only six croutons in the package, I decided to snack on them as they were, rather than toss them on top of a salad or float them in a bowl of soup.
And the verdict? They’re pretty good. They’re really crunchy, and very buttery. And heavily seasoned with garlic. As in GARLIC-Y! Seriously, don’t plan on kissing anyone after eating these croutons!
I happen to love garlic, so I find the flavor of these croutons to be very appealing. I love the buttery taste of them, and I love the strong taste of garlic. I think they’d taste great in a tomato soup or on top of an ordinary salad – these croutons would really liven it up.
My Final Thoughts:
Because the garlic is so strong, I don’t think I would actually buy a full-sized package of these croutons for me and my family, because I’m the only one in the household who really loves garlic. My husband likes it alright as long as it’s moderate … and I know he would think that these are way too garlic-y. And truth be told, he uses more croutons than I do as I generally prefer my salads without croutons (I prefer nuts of some sort). Good, but not something that would appeal to my entire family.
