Wasa Crispbread Hearty Rye -- 9.7 oz

Made with Whole Grain Rye and Rye Bran. All Natural Fat-free Two Grams of Fiber Per Slice. Topped with Naturally Nutritious Rye Bran One of Sweden's Most Popular Crispbreads. Product of Sweden. 9.7 Ounce Box (pack of 12). Wasa is the world's largest producer of crispbread.  Every year the company sells around 60000 tons of crispbread in 40 countries.  The Swedes eat more crispbread than any other people in the world almost 4 kilograms per capita.  Wasa's largest markets outside Sweden are the other Scandinavian countries and Germany closely followed by Poland the Netherlands France and the USA.  However crispbread as a category exists almost everywhere. Wasa which has a staff of around 950 people has been owned by the Barilla Group since 1999.  The head office is in Stockholm Sweden and the company has production facilities in Filipstad in Sweden Celle in Germany and Hamar in Norway. The name Wasa has its roots in an old Swedish word vase which means sheaf. Since the 14th century the coat of arms of the first king of Sweden Gustav Vasa and his family has featured a stylized sheaf.  Gustav Vasa was sometimes called the "Rye King".  No-one knows exactly where the name comes from but it may have its origins in the fact that the king demanded that his people pay their taxes in the form of rye a valuable commodity at the time.  For many years Wasa used a picture of the Rye King on its packaging.  This was later replaced by a royal crown above the name.  Today the crown has been evolved to a crown-sheaf which represents the origins of Wasa.  It also lends a royal air to crispbread something which is also reflected in the fact that the company has been appointed purveyor to His Majesty the King of Sweden.

Great snack

"My husband and I enjoy the rye taste and crispy texture of this Crispbread. It goes so well as a snack with slices of cheese, lunchmeat, or as a side with salads and pasta dishes. Vitacost has a good price on this product."

Good tasting, but not a bread alternative for me.

"Because of a strict adherence to unprocessed foods, I've found that eating these crackers causes an increase in my weight probably due to this process."

I love this cracker

"I am partial to rye crackers, and this one is one of the best. Lots of fiber, few ingredients, great rye flavor. I have even used these to dip in my hot soups for the extra crunch factor."

Not bad.

"Tastes kinda like burned toast by itself. The crackers themselves are HUGE. I eat one with a few pieces of organic cheese and it's a great snack. May not buy this flavor again but definitely love the brand."
