Taste Test: 365 Baked Woven Wheats

Editor
Only wheat and salt go into these healthy crackers

Dan Myers

If you took a Triscuit and found a way to extract every last drop of oil from it, you’d likely end up with 365 Baked Woven Wheats, sold exclusively by Whole Foods. These crackers look exactly the same as their greasier cousin, but contain only two ingredients: whole wheat and salt.

"This tastes more like Shredded Wheat than a Triscuit," one taster said. As expected, the cracker a bit bland and cardboard-like on its own, but it does have just the right amount of salt. "I don’t think that I would just sit down to eat a box of those," another added.

The general consensus was that while they're not particularly exciting on their own, not many crackers are. While Triscuits have enough oil and other stuff to make them worthwhile without a topping, these demand it. A note on the back of the box suggests pairing them with tomato soup, cheese, or a spread, and we have to agree. They even throw in recipes for spinach artichoke dip and warm goat cheese dip, both of which would be perfect accompaniments to this otherwise bland snack.

A serving of eight crackers contains 120 calories, .5 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbohydrates, and 170 milligrams of sodium. A 7-ounce box sells for $2.49.
