Graham Cracker Crumbs

If you ever wanted a good cheesecake or sweet pie, it must have bothered you not to find those pre-made pie crusts in the store. At least you can now make them easily with these graham cracker crumbs and some melted butter.

In all honesty, I used to by their animal cookies graham cracker and grind them up myself. I guess they became smarter and started selling them already crumbled for me.

Kinnikinnick definitely has some great gluten free products on the market. Say for example the k-toos cookies, pizza crusts and more.
