Vinta Original Crackers Review

Vinta Original CrackersI got hooked on the simplicity of stone ground wheat crackers from Trader Joe's, but since there's no TJ's in my current neighborhood, I've had to search for a decent alternative. Based on the box, these Vinta Original Crackers seemed to have a similar grainy foundation and are made with whole grains, so I was really excited for some hearty crackers.

NUTRITION FACTS

When I opened the plastic sleeve of crackers, I was dismayed to find a lot of broken crackers, which theoretically should have been about the size of a business card. The crackers were indeed studded with different grains, but the cracker itself tasted like a regular, un-hearty cracker with a mildly oily residue. They were still moderately tasty, but nothing really special or even note-worthy.

A serving of 2 Vinta Original Crackers provides 70 calories, 5% and 10% of the daily value for total and saturated fat, low sodium, no fiber, 1 gram of sugars and protein.

An 8.8 ounce box with about 19 servings cost $1.97 at Walmart. These crackers didn't meet my quality standards, but it's possible that I just happened to pick up a box that had been thrown around a lot. Plus, although the label says "Baked with 8 Grains & Seeds" they obviously didn't contribute any fiber. A look at the ingredients list also shows that they use enriched flour (wheat), which is not what I would have expected from the packaging.

I wouldn't buy Vinta Original Crackers again, but would instead go for Back to Nature Organic Stoneground Wheats: Baked Wheat and Flaxseed Crackers.
