Town House Toppers have caught my eye many times at the grocery store — they're designed with an indent to hold more salmon cream cheese, tuna salad, or whatever miscellaneous spread you favor on top of your crackers. Ultimately, however, they've always seemed a little too frivolous for me to actually purchase.
While picnicking at Hog Island this past weekend, I finally had a chance to satisfy my curiosity. I can't say that they make a tremendous difference in the amount of topping you can put on a cracker, but for some inexplicable reason (perhaps the same reason I liked worry stones as a kid), I really enjoyed them. Could you get into the groove with these crackers?
