I first heard about the all natural Wasa crackers from my former college roommate a long time ago, so it was with greedy anticipation that I scooped up a few packages when I found a small selection of Wasa crackers in the non-traditional snack section of the supermarket. I chose to try Wasa Light Rye Crispbread because of it's ultra low 30 calories per slice (compared to the usual 45).
By my visual estimation, each slice was roughly the size of a 3x5 index card and had a cross-section that reminded me of corrugated cardboard, but beyond that, there were no more reminders of paper products. True to their name, the crackers were very light and crisp, and I really liked the wholesome rye taste. I really liked how these didn't depend on a drench of oil or salt to enhance the crackers. How do you Wasa? I Wasa with hummus, cucumbers and salsa.
A serving of 2 crackers of Wasa Light Rye Crispbread provides 60 calories, no fat or cholesterol, 70 milligrams of sodium (2% of the daily value), 2 grams of protein and 14 grams of carbohydrates, including 3 grams of dietary fiber but no sugars. The only ingredient is whole grain rye flour.
A 9.5 ounce package of crackers (about 16 servings) cost $2.69 at Kroger. These all natural crackers are incredibly wholesome, providing a significant amount of fiber without an excess of sodium or fat. Plus, they are crisp and great-tasting with the simple taste of grain. I would highly recommend this product.
