The Cracker Hack


I was really looking forward to getting a box of Wheat Thins. This is a simple, cracker delicacy unmatched by any overly sweet, Mexican cracker product. Its purity is its soul.

On request, a Christmas visitor from the North Country brought us 4 boxes.

With gleeful anticipation, I opened the box at lunch.

WHAT'S THIS??? Little brown squares tasting of some odd shortening. Pfehhh! No more wheat purity. Just an artificial flavoring.

I was so depressed by this event that I could eat no more.

Now we speculate that Nabisco eliminated the trans fats with some "healthy" but decidedly inferior shortening.

Oh, the pity!
