Anyone bought Triscuits lately?

I indulged in a rare box of one of my most addictive snack crackers. "Original" flavor. I opened them tonight. God help me, it might be the Manhattans, but they seem smaller and thinner since we last met. Don't have that crumbly shredded wheat flavor or texture. Over baked and less real estate for cheese.

Am I over reacting? Maybe I got a bad batch.

  1. I didn't notice they were any smaller. However, they did seem lonely without some of that wonderfully disgusting port wine cheese in a tub. Makes me want a Manhattan, even with this lovely Pinot Gris in front of me!

    1. I love Triscuits. Love with cheese, hummus, cream cheese, peanut butter my favorite is plain right out of the box. I haven't bought any in months so I don't know if they are smaller.
      I also want a Manhattan.
      Tim, I don't I have ever had port wine cheese. I'll have to try it.

        It transports me to Manhasset circa 1960.

          I've been seeing port wine cheese around lately, looks a bit upscale even. I am so tempted!

      2. Always love Triscuits. They really shifted into overdrive quite a few years back with the rye version with caraway seeds. With a little cheese or salami, who needs dinner?

        1. When was the last time you had a Triscuit?

          Their size and shape might've changed since going "trans fat free" back in 2003.

            Probably around the Christmas holidays, so not too long ago.
            Maybe I'll have to downsize the cheese lol.

          2. Has anyone tried the brown rice versions?
