Both Wheat Thins and Triscuits are calorie-dense crackers with an overabundance of sodium. Any change that was made to the recipe was probably done to make them less of both of those things. That's bound to take away some flavor, too.

Triscuits have always tasted like cardboard to me.

Ritz are great, but I can't buy them because I will eat them until the whole box is gone.

Bingo. Never cared for them.

Personally, if you want something healthy, eat something healthy. If you want a snack food, eat a snack food. Don't try and whole-grain your guilt away with a dumbed down potato chip.

Nasty? They are the very definition of not nasty. Whole grain, lightly salted, nice crunch.

Thanks, I wonder if they changed their recipe too ? So many cheaper ingredients are being used to make food products.

My husband eats the low fat variety. I don't like them. Rather have a Ritz cracker or better yet a Graham cracker.

Or, branching out, a Cheez-it.

Since I'm supposed to cut carbs, this really gets me as I love all forms of cracker snacks. I remember back in the day, chicken in a biscuit, bacon flavored crackers, horn shaped corn crackers (sorry can't remember the actual names of these but boy were they good), and I still love triscuits, wheat thins, ritz, even saltines.

Never been a fan of wheat thins, they always tasted like carboard to me. Can’t speak to the current version, as I never buy them. I prefer triscuits, as a few others have also said.

Bugles! I used to love them.

I loved Chicken In A Biskit crackers when I was a kid, and then I didn't see them for years. One day in my forties, I spied them at a supermarket and got all excited and bought a box. My God, were those things awful. LOL.

I love Ritz and Club Crackers the best, as well as the similar ones that Trader Joe's sells, but I can't buy them. I will eat them until they are gone. The big box of Ritz will take me only two days to go through. When I'm ripping open another sleeve, I feel as ashamed as a cokehead who tells himself he will just have one more line.
