I’ve been a fan of  Wasa crackers for a really long time, but it had been a while since I’d had them recently. When I saw that they had a new flatbread variety, I just had to return to my roots and give them a try! If it’s any indiation, they didn’t last long in our household, only a few days. I’d say we liked them. I might even love them.

Reasons to Love this Cracker:

  • thin and crisp!
  • low in calories (70 for 2 sheets)
  • made with whole grain flour
  • simple ingredients
  • no flavor

Now let me defend the no flavor comment. When I buy good, flavorful, aged cheeses I either eat it alone or with a water cracker – because plain water crackers are well…plain and they don’t have much flavor. I don’t want my $18.99/lb cheese to be covered up! And like water crackers, these provide a little crunch – and for many fewer calories.  I’d rather eat my calories in cheese. :)

My Cheese & Cracker Pairing Guidelines:

flavored triscuts + cheap, cheddar cheese

flat bread crackers/water crackers + expensive, flavorful cheese

    I rarely use a lot of seasoning on my food – no salt or pepper for me! I’m weird like that. So I LOVE Wasa crackers! :) They’re a great snack!

    I haven’t bought wasa crispbread in ages! I used to love the oat one with awesome brie, dried cherries, and a drizzle of honey. Tell me again why I haven’t had that snack in years???

    I grew up on Wasa crackers because my mom is Scandinavian and they carry a sentimental value for her. When I was young, we’d get Wasa “sandwiches”–two crackers filled with soft cheese and turkey or peanut butter. However, since developing a wheat allergy, I haven’t been able to enjoy them. :-( I’m hoping they’ll come out with a GF variety soon!

      Oh no! Hopefully they are working on a WF version as we speak!

    We buy these too. They are pretty much the only cracker I do buy because they have so few ingredients.

    I, too, have been eating Wasa crackers for a long time, but to find them I had to go to specialty stores up until a year ago…now they have them at the local grocery store…thank goodness! They are without much flavor, but you can always add a thing or two, such as your suggestions (YUM!) and make them flavorful!

    I’ve never tried Wasaba crackers before. Do you think they would work with jam? hummas? peanut butter, honey, and banana?

    Wasa’s Flatbread Rosemary crackers are terrific. One of the best crackers I have ever had. But they have been discontinued! Apparently, a delicious, healty, cracker has no commercial market. Can we talk Wasa into reintroducing this wonderful product?
