Wheat Rounds are all-butter, sweet, crumbly finger biscuits for cheese. In England, this type of biscuit is known as a “digestive,” which comes from the old belief that the alkaline in the leavening agents acted as an antacid. Made from a blend of wholemeal flour and bran these crackers have a slightly sweet flavor that’s perfect with blue cheeses or aged goat’s milk cheeses.
In their cheese shop based in Bath, England, The Fine Cheese Co. first began making their own premium line of crackers after wondering why there are so many great cheeses, and so few great crackers to go with them. To that end, they’ve developed their English line, a neutral selection of crackers that don’t impose themselves on the cheeses.
