I used to love the Crispy Thins, they also had a Hearty Thick version. Very tasty and reasonable for calories. They don't sell them where I live (I wonder if it's because the brand name is an extremely crude word in the local language? LOL)

Thanks for the tip: I will look for these! I'm a sucker for crunchies!

Yesterday I found a "chip" called 9. They are GF and made with 9 kinds of veggies. Very Tasty! They are more like 150 cal a serving, and they do have salt, but a serving is fairly reasonable and they tasted GREAT with hummus!

They are rye (not good for gluten intolerant folk)
They have salt and sugar

For those who wish to avoid all that processing, or in need of GF alternatives, it's likely better to make your own, and store them in the fridge or freezer

You can't go by the label "trans fat free" or even if it lists it in the nutritional facts as 0 trans fat. Food companies are allowed to put that even when foods contain hyrdogenated oils. Something to do with when they put them in or how they add them, a weird loop hole in the marketing industry. Make sure you read the ingredient list and if they have the "H" word, then they do have trans fat.

They do have salt, but I believe they're trans fats free!

Do they have hydrogenated oils (ie: trans fats)?

I perfer to make my own crackers to avoid hidden trans fats, sodium and perservatives.

I found the perfect cracker: kavli crispy thins. Only four ingredients, 50 calories for 3 large crackers and they are delicious!
