Product Review: Foods Alive Mexican Harvest Organic Flax Crackers

Posted by: Marissa on April 4, 2012

A little over a year ago, I was introduced to Foods Alive when I tried their Onion Garlic Flax Crackers. This week I finally found and got to try another flavor, Mexican Harvest.

Like the Onion Garlic flavor, these crackers are made from germinated flax seeds and very few other ingredients. They contain: golden flaxseed, tomato, onion, cumin, Celtic sea salt, garlic, chili powder, cayenne, parsley, ginger, coriander and cilantro. The crackers are vegan, certified organic, raw food and super healthy.

Ease of Use

These crackers come in a re-sealable foil package. Easy to use and easy to keep fresh.


Most of what you will see when looking at the crackers is seeds. Aside from that, there is an orange colored coating with bits of green surrounding and covering the seeds. The crackers are thin and roughly rectangular in shape.

Taste and Texture

The first thing I noticed was the crunch, then the spiciness hit me! These crackers pack a little bit of heat. Remember, I’m not a spicy food kind of person, so they may not seem as spicy to most people. The flavor was really good, though. After tasting them, I couldn’t help but think that Mexican Harvest was the perfect name for the flavor. It was very fresh, very green and full of the “Mexican” flavor I love.

The texture is amazing! The flax seeds are silky smooth on the tongue and the crackers are very crunchy.

I suppose these crackers hold interest for everyone. D.D. ate one and said, “I don’t know whether I like them or not, but I know I want more.” I replied, “I know, great texture, right?” She said, “No, the texture isn’t great, but the flavor is awesome!”


As with any good cracker, these carry a lot of versatility. Eat them with soup, salad or with a favorite dip. They would also add an interesting taste and texture to any casserole… or any other dish, really.

Overall Value

The package contains four filling servings for $6.49. It’s a high price to pay for any crackers, but the quality shows in the product.


I like them. I wouldn’t call them a new favorite, but I wouldn’t hesitate to eat them again.
