Crackers

What are your favorite main stream crackers? I like the Wasa, Rye Crisps, Akmak, Finn crisp, wheat thins, tricuits, water crackers and many many more I guess I like all crackers including saltines plus fancy crackers when I can get them.

Never been much on crackers. Usually seem too salty for me.

Occasionally will eat saltines with general-type soups or Ritz-like ones with tomato soup.

Only one cracker that really "rings my chimes" is Nabisco Pilot crackers. Unfortunately can't get them anywhere except certain areas of the East coast. They're perfect with clam chowder or wild rice soup. Yum! Miss them like crazy.

BRETON by Dare-sesame flavor. Stoneground wheat thins.
Triscuits, Ritz. Those are just for munching or with cheese.
For soup - tomato soup-Townhouse or Ritz. Manhattan Clam
Chowder-oysterettes(Idon't think that's a brand, but 8 sided,
or saltines)
With peanutbutter, Ritz or Townhouse.
With butter, Matzo.

Ackkkk!! I can't say I have heard of most of the ones you got listed. Now you got me curious!

Don't laugh! But I like Cheezits, club, and townhouse the best. I guess I have never ventured much into the fancy-schmancy crackers. I usually try to avoid crackers... but man, ain't nothing better than cheezits when you got the munchies!!!

My DH has celiac and I can tolerate only so much wheat, so we have really grown accustomed to rice crackers. There are many of them out on the market and some are good and some are, well, not so good. We also like popcorn thins - they are like rice cakes but thinner. I put my homemade spinach dip on them and they are a great snack!

Most of those crackers I never heard of either, Sattie. I don't think they are mainstream around here. And I love cheesitz, too, the white cheddar ones.
For versatility I love plain old Ritz. I always have some one hand and they go on sale all the time. My favorite though is (are?) Triscuits. I love em plain or with swiss cheese and pepperoni on them, nuked or cold. Wheat thins are good. Those chicken n biscuit ones are good. Regular saltines with a can of Dr Pepper.... mmmm.
But going by the ones I always seem to have in the cupboard, Ritz.

That makes two of us, except I'm not crazy about Triscuits. They kinda remind me of shredded wheat.

My fave every day crackers are Zesta whole wheat saltines. I can nibble 6 crackers for only 45 calories.
I also love Wheat Thins, Ritz, Townhouse, and Cheezits. Nabisco now also has Wheat Thins Crisps that come in a bag. They are thinner than the regular crackers, so you can eat more of them for the same amount of calories.

Wheat Thins. I like the regular ones, but love the flavored ones. The dried tomato and basil and the Parmesan and basil are my favs.
