Crackers

Stoned wheat thins! Mondelez changed the recipe! And it seems Chantal was the first to notice months ago (it was her favorite cracker). She complained and got coupons to other Mondelez stuff. Oh gooooody (think Scar from Lion King).

Anyway, more and more voices are appearing online to make the same claim. Stone wheat thins are awful now (much like – I wish to add – the more “natural” smarties debacle!). So, to the internet Chantal went:

And within half an hour Chantal had Stoned Wheat thins…

Yuck!… Too thick… too soft… too cookie like!

Hmm… round two:

And within half an hour Chantal had Stoned Wheat thins…

Much better.  She took most of the sugar out of the recipe and made them much thinner this time:

But still a bit of tweaking will be needed next time.  More salt for one thing.  However, one change she made that really added to the cracker was putting in the crunchy bits from Red River cereal!  Just give it that tasty Stoned Wheat thin texture.

However, I wanted something too.

Cheese crackers

And within half and hour I was enjoying cheese crackers!

They were actually really crispy and very tasty.  I must say, although Chantal’s Stoned Wheat thins were not as good as the original manufactured variety, these cheese crackers were actually better and more flavorful than any cracker or chip I’ve had!  Yum…
