Description
This was a snack cracker that NABISCO made in the early 80's. They were chicken flavored, and shaped to look like miniature drumsticks. They had a commercial featuring a Dixieland band singing - "DIXIES.... DIXIES.... DRUMSTICK....SNACK CRACKERS!" I thought they were quite good, and other than the fact that their CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT crackers were also similarly flavored, I don't know why they stoped making them. Nobody other than me seems to remember them.

I've wondered what happened to those snack crackers for years. They were better than Chicken in a Biscit. I'd buy boxes of them if they ever made them again. jcdalton@comcast.net

You are NOT the only one!!! I loved those crackers!!! I would buy a whole palette of them if they brought those back!!! Those were my only snack in Jr High...Rock on 1085!!!

I've been thinking about those crackers for a while now. When I was a kid, we used to get them when we went to Bodega Bay, CA. I will never forget the texture or the highly-seasoned flavoring of Drumstick crackers!

I thought I was the only person who adored these crackers and missed them! I used to eat them like they were going out of style (which they did, unfortunately)! Chicken In A Biscuit comes close, but I liked the airy texture of the Dixies a hell of a lot more! I wish they'd bring them back.

OMG!! I can't believe I FINALLY have validation that I am NOT crazy and these crackers did exist. I always swore there was a drumstick shaped cracker with a unique texture and chicken flavored. My sister and I remember these, and thought when we bought "Chicken In a Biskit" they were a new and or improved version. NO WAY!! LOL they came close but were NEVER quite the same. LOL...oh what memories :)

My favorite snack food of all time. You can still buy them in Australia... You can have them shipped to your house, it'll just cost you a bundle... I checked and ten boxes was, like, eighty bucks to be shipped... LOL

Peggy, I believe you're thinking of QUACKERS? (Duck-shaped crackers of the 80s, kind of similar to Goldfish crackers. They had a sour cream & onion variety.)
David Thrower - August 07, 2009 - Report this comment
Yes, those did exist - remember them well. I wonder if anyone still makes them, TBH. Nabisco originally made them, as they had all sorts of interesting unique snack crackers then.

Best cracker I ever had. Still see the box, and remember the smell and taste. We didn't get them often, but one summer we camped for 2 weeks, and my Mom must have bought 14 boxes, it was all I ate other than hobo pies and marshmallows.

They still make and sell Dixie Drumsticks in Australia. Don't know why they don't sell them here in the U.S.

I was beginning to think I was crazy....remembering something so clearly that didn't exist LOL....I remember riding in the back seat of the car as a kid eating these. I would bite into the center like a real chicken leg and pretend I was a giant....oh the memories of youth...I wish they would bring them back!

Does anyone know if they're being imported to Canada? I would love to get my hands on them again!
daniel lee - May 16, 2010 - Report this comment
ahh yes....my fave snack ever. what memories. went into a depression when the quit making them. for some reason they were much better than chicken in a biskit. i'm 15 again, watching the a-team, hart to hart, or hunter and munching on these!!!
Angelo - October 31, 2010 - Report this comment
I don't know why people compare the old "Dixies" to "Chicken in a Biscuit." Dixies were way better. They were crunchier and more flavorful---really tasted like fried chicken. I wonder why sales weren't better? I'm assuming slow sales is why they discontinued them, but that seems hard to believe.

They sell these in the UK. Try one of the online British food sites.

These are the most amazing cracker ever! Why don't they sell them in the US anymore?:(
Christine - May 06, 2011 - Report this comment
Everybody thinks I am CRAZY when I mention these!!! I SOOOOOOO MISSSSS these !!!!!!!
Scott - May 07, 2011 - Report this comment
I agree with Angelo. Although Chicken in biskit are good crackers, Dixie Drumsticks were much different. They had a crunchy coating like fried chicken legs. Yum!! Please bring them back!

Ohmygod, seriously!! Nobody remembers them! My brother and I adored them!! I think about them so often! Chicken in a biscuit is good, but doesn't fill that void.

Dixies Drumsticks are apparent still being produced in Australia. Check out this blog (you have to scroll down a bit). http://sweetlittleparties.blogspot.com/2011/03/real-parties-under-sea.html

Ok. So tonight I grabbed a bag of flavor blasted Smokin' BBQ goldfish crackers. We got home and I opened them, poured a few in my hand, popped into my mouth, and POW!!! Instant flashback! Don't get me wrong there not exactly the same but closer than chicken in a bisciut I think.

They are available in Australia.

I am so glad that other people remember these too!!! Chicken in a biscuit is not nearly as good!
TWZ - May 03, 2013 - Report this comment
Buy a box of Cheez-It, "Italian four cheese" flavored crackers and let me know if this is a similar taste. I opened a box I bought randomly and it took me about a week to place the flavor. I could be complete off base, but to me the flavor reminded me of these crackers.

Not only was the flavor excellent, the texture was unique, unlike any other snack I can think of.
