Wheat Thins Tuscan Herb Flatbread Crackers Review

Wheat Thins Tuscan Herb FlatbreadRecently I spotted Wheat Thins Flatbreads in the supermarket and I was intrigued. It's not the same smaller sized snack crackers that we have come to know and love (you've got to try Wheat Thins 5 Grain Fiber Selects if you haven't already), but is instead a large sized "crispbread" or "crackerbread" type cracker - a similar size to Finn Crisp Multigrain Thin Crisp or Wasa Crisp 'n Light 7 Grain CrackerBread. I picked up the Tuscan Herb variety of the Wheat Thins Flatbread and proceeded to try it out as soon as I got home.

Each flatbread is about 4 inches long; possessing a width comparable to that of traditional Wheat Thins. In essence, it appears that Nabisco simply took their Wheat Thin batter and cut it a little bit differently to make flatbread shapes, enabling them to market a whole new product. I enjoy munching on Wheat Thins, so this is not a problem in my opinion. The flavor is pleasing and fairly neutral with a background of herbs (such as sundried tomato and garlic), which added a nice touch.

The problem comes when you are paying $2.50 for a 5.5oz box of Wheat Thins Tuscan Herb Flatbread, instead of paying the same price for a 9.5oz box of good ole' Wheat Thins (or the flavored varieties, if you feel so inclined). Therefore, while the eating experience did not disappoint me as a Wheat Thin lover, the buying experience did.

Each serving of 2 Wheat Thins Tuscan Herb Flatbread Crackers (15 grams) provides 60 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat (2% of the daily value), 5% of the DV for sodium, less than 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein. The ingredient list begins with unbleached enriched flour and does not get much more impressive from there, although it is somewhat short.

Wheat Thins' New Flatbreads do not offer anything more than the regular Wheat Thins, besides the oblong shape (which might be preferable to someone making a special appetizer or something). However, for all of the munch-ers out there ... stick with traditional Wheat Thins for a better bargain.
