I called up my mom today and asked her how much she loved me. She said that she loved me lots, she loves me the most, more then I will ever know, more then the ocean is deep, she will love me forever too. ( Ha, take that my other sisters! )
Well, being that she loves me that much I asked her if she could go down to the local Carr's store ( AK grocery store. ) and buy me and send me a box of Sailor Boy Pilot Bread. She said yep, she will do that. You can only get this in AK or I found out, you can get it on line. Up In AK I always had a box of these crackers in the house. I would take 2 for lunch and put some super sharp aged white cheddar cheese on them or mix up some tuna fish and have that on the crackers.
While I was on the phone my dad was in the room and wanted to know what my mom was going to send to me, she told him pilot bread. He just laughed. But he did admit that he had a box out at the cabin.
Have you ever moved and just can't find things that you want and knowing that you can't get it, it just makes you want it all the more? Well, that's how I feel about Pilot Bread.
I put this link here but it just takes you to the Anchorage Daily News. If you go to this link, in their search bar type in Sailor Boy Pilot Bread you will get some stories that they have done about this cracker. One was when there was a rummer that it was no longer going to be made. Caused a panic with some folks!
