Nabisco Royal Lunch Milk Crackers
Sorry folks, they don't make them anymore. They were really popular around
Thanksgiving and Christmas, because a lot of people used them in their dressing
or stuffing recipes.
However, the holiday season sales weren't enough to make up for the rest of the
year's sales slump, so Nabisco discontinued them. They were just discontinued
last year. so there may still be a few boxes around in stores. If Nabisco gets
enough mail, they might bring them back. If they do, and if you have proof of
manufacture in 2007, let me know.
As for a recipe, the Nabisco recipe isn't on the Internet. Even if it were,
Nabisco made these things in huge quantities, in a factory. What would you do
with a recipe that said "take fifty pounds of flour and add twenty pounds of
milk powder...", etc. Where would you get ingredients like "stabilizers,
emulsifiers, artificial preservatives, artifical flavors and colors"?
What you'd really like to have is a copycat recipe - something that you can make
in your kitchen that will taste like the commercial product. Nabisco probably
doesn't even have such a recipe. They never made them that way. So far, no one
has created a copycat recipe for them. If they ever do, you can bet I'll post
There is another product called:
Mrs. Allison's Milk Lunch, New England Biscuits
12.3 ounces for $2.99 (in Fairfield Country, CT)
Archway & Mother's
There is a lot about Royal Lunch Milk Crackers on this message board:
There is contact information for both Nabisco and Archway there. Some of the
people posting there have tried the Archway product and say that they don't
taste quite the same - more of a baking soda taste. However for those who use
milk crackers in cooking, the Archway product may be the solution.
