Wheatables - Ad


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 original Wheatable, from the 1980’s was hands down the best cracker ever made! My friend Scott and I had been out (in our 20’s) all evening and we were craving food so we stopped at a 7/11 wanting Wheat Thins, and this was all they had, so we bought a box. We got in the car and tasted them and we finished the entire box! They were the thinnest, crispiest, tastiest cracker! They were better tasting than a Wheat Thin, which was thicker! Then a few months or maybe 1 year in, Keebler changed the recipe and they were no longer that tasty or thin! Somewhere in that time they started making a onion flavored and I think a cheesy version in a hexagon shape, or was that Nabisco?…. and then those disappeared too! I have always truly missed the original Wheatable! I wondered if Nabisco somehow said they encroached on the recipe patent? I also miss the 70’s cracker called Twigs by Nabisco! They came in several flavors and I loved them!

    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.

  10. Gina Tellez says:

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

  11. terry cinal says:

    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!!!!

  12. Jada Williams says:

    Why did they discontinue these wonderful cherubic treats? I used to eat them all the time as a child because they were my Mother’s favorite snack, but now they are nowhere to be found. Please bring it back Keebler. If anyone knows what taste similar please let me know.

  13. I loved the old wheatables too and I really miss them too, wonder if we can have some of those again.

    I LOVE these‼️ Please bring them back‼️ I used to be able to buy generic, but now can’t even find generic‼️

  15. Sunigurl says:

    Oh how I miss Wheatables!! They were the best cracker by far!! Please PLEASE! Bring them back!!

  16. Diana says:

    I to miss the old original wheatable. My guess is it tasted so good that they were afraid no one would buy any other cracker and they had to pull it off the shelves. Too bad, cause they could have made a killing on them. I wish they had said they were going to stop making them, I would have purchased enough to last me a few years!! Please make these again and change the name if you have to. You could be making a killing off these crackers!!
