Hardtack & Crackers

Part of the Yankee tradition which produced the magnificent clipper ships also produced the lowly ship's biscuit. The Hardtack is a heavy unleavened biscuit that was the sailors' staple for long sea voyages. The Bent hardtack cracker is still baked today by the Bent Company in Milton, Massachusetts; an original purveyor of hardtack provisions to the Union Army. In addition to the traditional Hardtack cracker, we offer a selection of common crackers that are uncommonly good.


Brownies

G. H. Bent Company has been diligently baking chocolate brownies, cream cheese brownies and congos for decades. They are baked with only the finest ingredients which make them stand out amongst the crowds of contenders. Fantastic to serve at a party or simply enjoy at home with the whole family. These make great additions to family parties and wonderful housewarming gifts.
