Wheatables

Looks: The crackers don’t have as smooth a surface as the ones on the box, and their color is bit more varied. (If you look closely, you can see that I managed to snap a picture of the mythical “unseparated cracker” in the top of the photograph – the fault line is there, but it was never completely broken.) 4 out of 5

Taste: You’ll notice that the box claims that these taste “Better than Wheat Thins!” I’m a big fan of Wheat Thins, but I agree with the box. Wheatable are like a cross between a Wheat Thin and a Ritz cracker. Wheaty and slightly sweet like the Wheat Thin, but crispy, like the Ritz; I had to stop myself from absentmindedly eating the whole box. What’s the deal with their shape though? 5 out of 5

    Oh how I miss the old Wheatables! Why did they ever change them in the first place!?! I keep waiting to see if the originals will come back as a new cracker with a different name but so far I haven’t found any. Boo Keebler! Bring back the original! I’m having a serious 10 year craving that I can’t fix! (Actually, I think it’s more like 15 years ago that they change them)

    I used to be able to eat an entire box of the OLD Wheatables, they were absolutely fantastic! I miss them and I want them to return. I don’t give a crap if they had trans-fats or whatever else in them. McDonald’s screwed up their pies and Keebler screwed up their crackers…how sad for anyone that never got to try the originals of either!!! They should give the people both varieties, call one “Retro” or something, and allow them to decided which they would like to consume.

    The was a case in court which found that by not having the cracker made of an all wheat flour they could not use the name wheatables.
    So instead of changing the name they changed the recipe I wish they had changed the name and still sold the cracker as i dont buy these with an all wheat flour .
    they should make the origional recipe and change the name and tell people about it so they know the new name suit happy american miniority desiding the behavior of the majority again

    Kashi has a cracker (7 grain original?) that tastes VERY similar to the ORIGINAL Wheatables.

    I wondered what happened to them. They were delish! I preferred them over Triscuits.

    Are they not being made any more? I went to 3 stores today to find them; none were there? Does anyone know what stores are still carrying them? They were my favorite crackers!!!!
