We saw these at the grocery store last night and decided to try them. Unfortunately, what's inside the box doesn't look as good as on the package.
We bought the Sea Salt & Black Pepper variety - there were several flavors to choose from, but I didn't see a plain option.
I took one cacker out of the box and ate it. It had a strange greasy sheen to it, which I could feel as well as taste. The salt and pepper seasoning was OK, but I really didn't care for the oiliness of the cracker. DH and I both expected these to be similar to regular triscuits (dry shredded wheat texture).
So, I don't plan to eat any more of these, and I don't think my husband plans to either; he also thought they felt and tasted greasy. So, we were both disappointed. The remainder of the box will likely end up being donated to the kitchen at one of our offices.
For info, 6 crackers has 130 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 130 mg sodium, 1 g fiber, and 2 g protein.
I wonder if the amount of fat per serving or ingredient list could have been a clue? The first ingredient is brown rice, and the second ingredient is oil. I'll have to compare this info with some other crackers to see if I can come up with a rule of thumb, as I've done for sugar: when looking at granola bars and the like, I know that one will likely be too sweet for my taste if it has more than 8 grams of sugar in it.
