...shaped like the 7 Continents

These crispy crackers are made of stone ground wheat and other grains. Shaped like the 7 Continents, some have perforations for countries that would like to break off of their continent.

**Very charming to float in your pea soup.

Coming soon: Continental Plates. The International dinnerware for worldwide entertaining.

       Continental already serves crackers - gourmet, with a cheese-like substance.   

       + Educational bun.

       Heh, you could make single Pangea crackers with the individual continents connectd by salt. Drop one in your soup and watch'em drift.   

       You could also make each continent cracker out the popular grain of the area. Rice for Asia, wheat for Europe, corn for the Americas, etc..   

       "Continental Crackers Party Mix- many crackers+ a little spice= one world-size party."

       yes [NTSS] I had thought of that, but sometimes I'm just a plain old minimalist! Thanks for adding for me!

       You should market these as a must for Continental Breakfasts.   

       (I was pissed off beyond belief when I discovered what the generally accepted meaning of a Continental breakfast was. -- WHAT!!!? IT'S JUST BREAD, JUICE & A CHOICE OF TWO FRUITS? And this differs from a normal breakfast in that it is SMALLER? So Something Continental should be in every way smaller than what you have every day in your own house?)   

       IF an ishwa! I went to sleep that night dreaming of taking up the challange of that continental breakfast. (it being as big as a continent & all.)   

       +It would have been easier to take w/ continental crackers.

       Breathe, [Zimmy], just breathe. It's going to be alright now. We have Continental Crackers here to help you cope. Here you go. Remember- just breathe- wait, not while you're eating crackers. Swallow first, then breathe. Good boy.

       I got over it. [NTSS]. I'm so naive. It was the first time in my life I could afford a nice hotel room.   

       I'd order a box. just for nostalgia of that moment. (my now wife was there then & thought I was just joking about it all. She thought it was very funny. & I must say that when vacationing in New Orleans, it is a challange to wake up in time to actually have the breakfast.)
Zimmy, Apr 30 2006
  

       I was upset the first time I found out what "Free Continental Breakfast" is/was ...a long time ago. That's why it's FREE. Just some doughnuts, bagels and OJ. It's not worth getting up early for!   

       I agree with Zimmy! We should demand a breakfast as big as a continent.
xandram, Apr 30 2006
  

       Dang it, [2fries] - I was just about to post that Pangea Cracker idea too.
Letsbuildafort, Apr 30 2006
  

       [phlish] I'm sorry that you feel that way, but glad you explained your negative vote. I agree somewhat, as I won't vote on custard-based inventions myself,** but that is not quite the same. I don't think the shapes of the continents have been 'played out' yet.   

       ** make note, that if sometime in the future, someone invents somthing so incredible (and it has custard) I will vote for it. I allow myself to change my mind and see things in a different way. Each instance is it's own.

       //you brits will vote for anything...// and who did the Americans vote into office ? speaking of //making a cracker or cookie into a recognizable shape// - so, fishboning your annotation if that's possible. Continental Crackers is a fine idea giving it a glowing cake sized bun +

       nice one [xenzag] and I'm an American who doesn't vote!
xandram, May 01 2006
  

       [Zenzag] Hey! The winner of the most votes has not taken the presidency since 1996! We are INSANE, not STUPID.
Galbinus_Caeli, May 01 2006
  

       There would need to be an "Atlantis" cracker made from a slightly more absorbent cracker substrate so that, over time, it gets soggy and sinks into your soup while the other crackers continue to float.

       Out of interest, what countries have expressed a desire to break off from their continent?
theleopard, Apr 22 2008
  

       I can't remember what exactly I was referring to at that time. There was something on the news about a country wanting to *break away* from somewhere. Sorry for no facts.
xandram, Apr 22 2008
  

       sp: cheeses ??
