Crackers are not only a great snack but a popular choice for hors d’oeuvres at parties and get-togethers. Health conscious hosts have traded their Club and Saltine crackers for whole wheat varieties. But is what you are serving really whole grain?

This product is great not only because it is actually composed of whole grain wheat (unlike many impostors) but also because it is low fat and contains no saturated or trans fat. Compared to similar products like Triscuit Crackers, these whole grain crackers contain less fat, more fiber, more vitamins and minerals, and half the sodium! Apart from their wholesome ingredients, these crackers taste so good! I love the Roasted Garlic flavor the best. They are so crunchy and flavorful that I use them in place of croutons in my salads.
These crackers will potentially pose a problem for those used to eating refined crackers or sensitive to certain tastes because the flavor and texture may take a little getting used to. But once that passes, you will surely be hooked! I rate Kashi Heart to Heart Whole Grain Crackers 4.8 cupcakes.
BONUS: Allergic to wheat or gluten? Try Mary’s Gone Crackers Original Seed Cracker made from brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds, and sesame seeds. These tasty crackers are an awesome wheat-free and gluten-free option.
