Wheat Thins Artisan – Wisconsin Colby

wheatthinscolby.jpgI’m always on the lookout for new crackers on my supermarket shelves, especially cheese-flavored crackers. I recently found new Wheat Thins Artisan crackers in Wisconsin Colby flavor. They attempt to combine a Wheat Thin cracker with a cheese flavor, but don’t succeed very well. Perhaps in an attempt to make the cracker “artisan” (whatever that is), they went with a cracker that is a bit thicker and has a different texture than a regular Wheat Thin. As a result, it doesn’t have the same pleasant crunch that I’m used to from a Wheat Thin. And while the box says that Wisconsin Colby cheese is known for its “mild, gentle flavor,” the cheese flavor has a slightly bitter aftertaste that I wouldn’t call gentle. Wheat Thin Artisan crackers also come in Vermont White Cheddar flavor, but I’m not really inclined to try them after eating the Wisconsin Colby flavor.

Phoood rating: So-so

who dragged you into buying this?

I had a buy-one-get-one coupon for these, so I bought one of both flavors. Not cheesy enough. I'll stick to regular Wheat Thins. They are giving the term "artisan" a bad name.

I hate coupons. They don't want me to be a mongoose.

The aftertaste of these crackers reminded me of the taste in your mouth after you vomit. They are that bad.

I must disagree. I have bought the Wisconsin Colby cracker for weeks on end, addicted. I think they are marvelous, and just as crispy as the original. They are delicious with carrots and T. Matzetti veggie dip as a side.
