Finn Crisp Multigrain Thin Crisp Review

Finn Crisp Multigrain Thin CrispI got the flu last week, and wanted something to eat that I'd actually be able to keep down. Getting sick of ginger ale, I thought crackers might be a good choice, so I picked up a box of Finn Crisp's Multigrain Thin Crisps. The ingredient list was surprisingly simple: whole grain rye flour, wheat flour, whole grain oat flour, barley flour, water, millet, poppy seeds, salt, and yeast. Can you get any better than that? Eight all-natural ingredients plus some water!

Before tasting, I wasn't sure whether to expect something like GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread or a Wasa cracker, and the result was something kind of in between. The crackers were extremely thin, like crispbreads, but they had a bit of a denseness to them instead of a satisfying snap when broken or bitten, and they weren't cardboard-y or as dense as the Wasa crackers. I was less impressed with them when I ate one plain, but when I dunked it into some chicken noodle soup, I thought they were awesome. The texture held up well and they were subtle enough to not overpower the flavor of the soup.

One serving of 3 Finn Crisp Multigrain Thin Crisps (6.5 grams each), provides 60 calories no sugar, only 15 grams of carbohydrates 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein.

While these were not quite what I was expecting, and I didn't like them that much plain, they were excellent when dunked in some chicken noodle soup. I also think they'd be great crackers to hold cheese or a spread, like Finn Crisp with Laughing Cow & Radishes, and are a good alternative to the denser Wasa crackers. I paid $3.19 for the box, which contains 13 servings, and I'd consider that a good enough value to buy again.
