Wasa Crisp 'n Light Crackers Whole Grain -- 4.9 oz

Made with Whole Grain Wheat. All Natural No Trans Fats Good Source of Whole Grain Only 20 Calories Per Slice. Great as a Snack or as a Complement to Spreads Cheeses Soups and Salads. Product of Germany. 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 Crunch Satisfier
 July 7, 2014
"I can't find this variety locally and am so happy to be able to order them from Vitacost. They are great for the calorie conscious -- they satisfy the crunch w/o the high numbers. Great to eat w/ hummus or nut butters or plain. You can also break them up to make a nice substitute for croutons on your salad.
I have a friend hooked on them now too.

Light, delicious, perfect snack
 March 13, 2013
"I love this cracker for its lightness, perfect with any topping. It has a subtle flavor which is fresh and blends with all foods, providing a 'vehicle' for many different spreads. I always joke that most things are just 'vehicles' for butter, and this little bit of light crispiness is perfect for that. True, you must portion out the serving, because they tend to disappear quickly if you don't!
The only negative is that they have a tendency to stick to your lips, which is intriguing, albeit odd!
