Salty, sweet, and slightly nutty, the original Wheat Thins are a simple yet satisfying classic snack that are pretty hard to beat. So it was with some excitement and just as much trepidation that we sampled their latest offering: Wheat Thins Lime. Could the snappy crackers hold up to a dusting of citrus, or would this novel addition take them from dangerously addictive to skippable?
When I'm craving something salty and crunchy, crackers can be a healthier choice than chips. I love nibbling them on their own, dipped in hummus, or topped with cheese and sliced apples. Not all crackers are created equally though. Some will make you drop your cracker when you find out how much sodium they contain. Then others might have you reaching for more when you discover they're a good source of protein. Check out the chart below to see how they all compare.
