TLC 7 grain crackers. They are DELICIOUS. Dip them in a little hummus. YUM.

Goldfish are "made with" whole grain. That means that they can technically use 1 molecule of whole grain and make that claim on the label. That isn't too much of an exaggeration, as the first ingredient is still enriched flour.

I really like the brand Back to Nature. They have a classic round that is quite similiar to the Ritz. The ingredient list is ten times better, but the only downfall is the size of the cracker. It is much smaller than Ritz. You can go to there website. They also have other types of crackers too.
Though I honestly think that nutritonally, crackers are pretty much crap, I do get that hankering for salty crunch.
A serving of goldfish is 55 crackers so they are good when the need hits. I like anything I can eat 55 of. And the new baby goldfish have 85 in a serving.

It's not the same style of cracker as Ritz, but I really like Kashi's Heart to Heart whole grain crackers. They are more like Triscuits, and are 120 cals for 7 crackers. I find them to be pretty filling as part of my afternoon snack along with a wedge of light cheese and glass of green tea!

If you really like Ritz, try the pretzel/cracker combos. I think 15 are 140 cals, and they satisfy the ritz/salty/crunchy crave for me.
I like reduced fat wheat thins...its like 18 crackers i think a serving for 130 calories. And what i do so i dont sit there poppin em like chips, i measure out one serving of them, then i spread one wedge of laughing cow light cheese on them and eat em that way....total of 165 calories and its a pretty good snack

I find myself addicted to Ritz crackers. Although it's 80 calories per 5 pieces, I still feel I am not getting any nutrition out of it and the calories seem to be a big "waste".
What is your favorite healthy non-cardboard-tasting cracker? [can't eat anymore WASA]
