Product Description

From the Abbey of the Genesee

Handmade by Trappist monks, these crisps are like a cracker made of baked grated cheese and are totally addictive! Serve as a light appetizer, with wine, crumbled into soup or salad, or add to a sandwich or burger for a distinctive twist. Choose from:
  • Asiago Crisps: A rich, mellow Italian cheese which develops a complex, nutty flavor as it matures.
  • Chipotle Parmesan Crisps: The spice and smoke of Chipotle pepper baked into savory, sharp imported Parmesan.
  • Garlic Parmesan Crisps: Imported Parmesan with a sprinkling of garlic and a dash of coarse ground pepper.
Each net wt. 3 oz / 85 g (about 12 crisps)

Monastery Info

Abbey of the Genesee: Piffard, New York

The Abbey of the Genesee is a community of over 30 contemplative monks belonging to the world-wide Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (O.C.S.O.) more commonly known as Trappists. The Abbey was founded in 1951 from the Abbey of Gethsemani, and is situated in the picturesque Genesee River Valley of Western New York. Within the monastic enclosure are some 1,200 acres of forest, ravines, rolling hills and a meandering creek.

The monks are dedicated to the worship of God in a hidden life within the monastery following the Rule of St. Benedict. The monastic community supports itself by the common work of baking bread and other products. In addition, the brothers help out on the farm and with cooking, laundry, cleaning, hospitality, formation of new members, and care of the sick and elderly of the community. The community is cloistered and has no outside ministry. Guests are received for quiet, private retreats at the retreat house.

Product Reviews

  • Addictive

  • The crisps in all flavors are delicious. Put them out for guests and there will not be any left. So you want them for another time, either buy more or put out less.
