I guess I need to go back to buying store brand saltines. I bought myself a box of Nabisco saltines, and found that they’d changed them. A lot.
Smaller by at least 1/4.
Less flaky and puffy.
Fewer crackers — doesn’t fill the plastic packs up anywhere near to the top.
Gloopy-tasting instead of that clean saltine taste.
Barely visible mini-grains of salt. Not good if you’ve been sweating from fever and want salt.
Back tries to look like the front, except for having no salt.
No serrated edges.
Cooked in some different kind of oil.
Doesn’t taste as good with tomato soup, chicken noodle, or other classic saltine partners.
Not nearly as gentle on your stomach, which kinda removes the point for us sickies.
Ingredient list has gotten a lot longer than I remember.
The picture that’s still on the box is of an old school Nabisco saltine — no truth in advertising there!
Looks, tastes, and crumbles more like a snack cracker, less like a saltine.
Kinda disgusting, if you actually had your mouth set for a saltine.
Not bad if you wanted a generic wheat snack cracker, but why buy saltines for that? There’s better.
Ripoff by volume.
I don’t know why you’d want to change a cracker that’s such a classic, but there you go. I’ll never make the mistake of buying Nabisco saltines again.
