I love those crackers. I have been looking for them for the past few years. I like them with cole slaw.

My first job was in a restaurant and I remember Euphrates as being one of if not the most popular crackers in the baskets that were placed on the tables. I'll bet we went through more of them than any other cracker.

The last time I looked, they could still be purchased at Trader Joe's stores.

Euphrates were definitely an adult cracker. When as a kid, my family went out to eat, my younger sister and I would scour the cracker basket for stuff to put in out mouths while waiting for the meal to come. That was where we first encountered Euphrates. With the careful slowness normally associated with checking out a landmine, we tried the things....... Yuck..... Okay, maybe with some butter on it....... nope, still yuck....... maybe a LOT of butter? And that's when Mom would take the Euphrates from us and steer us back toward the Waverly Wafers.

Nowadays, I think I would probably like them a lot.

I apologize for resurrecting this ancient thread, but it appears that Euphrates crackers live on under the generic name of "Sesame Wafers." You can find some information about them on the Burry Foodservice site. (I am not permitted to post a link.) Unfortunately, Burry is now exclusively a food service supplier, so you won't find their crackers--or, for that matter, their long-gone Gaucho or Fudgetown cookies--in your local supermarket.

The big (3"+) round ones?
 
TJ's finallu opened in Ft. Worth; the one near me in Plano is due soon.  You have added another item to my "list".  Thanks!
