Everyday staples Saltine crackers (perfect for hungover mornings) are apparently getting a makeover; MassLive reports that Nabisco is testing out new round Saltine crackers in New England for four months.

Apparently they think this will be hip and modern, bringing Saltines to the 21st century in a "relevant and contemporary way," a representative said.

We're not sure why they feel they need to jazz things up, considering Jack White's "Sixteen Saltines" is already great PR for them, but the round crackers may reportedly stick around if they do well, phasing out the squares.
