Hint of Salt Triscuits

Hint of Salt Triscuits

Have you seen these new Triscuits? Maybe they aren't new to you, but they are new to me. They are called "Hint of Salt." And believe it or not, they have 50 miligramss of sodium per serving. Care to guess how much sodium the traditional Triscuits have? 180 miligrams. That's a lot! And I'm much more comfortable about us eating these, and more likely to let Nora sneak one, than I ever would have been with the regular ones.

My suspicion is that you're probably grumbling "Doesn't she know that salt provides taste? Those things would be cardboard without the salt!" Well, I thought the crackers tasted just fine. And my EMT was surprised how good they tasted, too. But if you aren't a believer, here's two options for helping the crackers taste better: 1) Use a dip, which you would likely do anyway. A good hommus or French Onion dip will make you completely forget about the lack of salt. 2) Lay the Triscuits out on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with onion and garlic powders, and bake for just about 10 minutes on 300.
