Wheat Thins Reduced Fat Country French Onion Review

Wheat Thins Reduced Fat Country French OnionWhen I go for Wheat Thins, I always go for the Reduced Fat variety to minimize the snacking damage. One of the newer flavors, Wheat Thins Reduced Fat Country French Onion had me really curious about the taste - even though the packaging really emphasized the reduced fat (30% less fat than the original Wheat Thins) and whole grain aspects of the snack (6 grams of whole grain per serving).

The crackers appeared to be the same size and had the same crunch as the traditional Wheat Thins, however, they had extra green specks that are probably parsley, and you can really taste the onion flavor. I know Wheat Thins are usually rather salty, but this variety was WAY salty from all that additional flavor. One of the things I usually like about Wheat Thins is the mild sweetness that comes from the cracker itself, but the French Onion flavor really covers it up. The flavor is so strong that I couldn't eat as many as I usually do in one sitting - which can be interpreted as both a good or bad thing.

One serving of Wheat Thins Reduced Fat Country French Onion is 16 crackers and provides 140 calories. There are 4 grams of fat per serving (6% of the daily value) with 0.5 gram being saturated (3% of the DV). There are also 290 milligrams of sodium per serving (12% DV), 2 grams of protein and 23 grams of carbohydrates which includes 1 gram dietary fiber and 5 grams of which are sugars. There are less than 2% of daily recommendations for vitamins and minerals.

I paid $2.50 for a 8.5 ounce box of these Wheat Thins Reduced Fat Country French Onion while it was on sale at Kroger. I'm always curious about trying new products, but these don't top the traditional reduced fat Wheat Thins for me.
