Made of French bread with canola oil, Olivia’s Croutons come in different flavors, like butter and garlic, or Vermont cheddar and dill, and those would be the exact ingredients used in their preparation. There might be added onion, garlic, or herbs and spices, but nothing like high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, preservatives, or excessive sodium. While those are the usual suspects in major brands of croutons, such ingredients often stop this reporter from buying even the most appetizing looking and attractively packed little cubes of dry bread sold by big box stores. Come to think of it, why pollute your soup or salad, perhaps, lovingly prepared using organic vegetables with monstrous additives long overdue for being outlawed? Olivia’s croutons are made with just a few simple ingredients, and baked in small batches the way they would be in a home kitchen. This Vermont-based company bakes and packages its products in a barn on a working family farm. Fresh and flavorful all natural croutons that won’t spoil your appetite are sold nationally at Fresh Market stores and in many specialty grocery stores. Learn more at
