I 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.
