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.
Wasa Hearty Rye Crispbread have already received raved reviews here, so let me tell you about another great tasting Wasa product: Wasa Crisp 'n Light 7 Grain CrackerBread. These are my go-to crackers.
True to their name, they are both crispy and light, but not cardboard-y like some of the other "crisp" crackers I've tasted. They don't really have a flavor, but I think they taste pretty good by themselves, although they are the perfect cracker to top with cheese, cold cuts, jam, cream cheese ... you get the idea.
