I’ve been on a special kind of boycott for more than 20 years now. I haven’t touched anything branded “Special K” since the cereal was fed to me almost everyday as a kid. But whoa, what in tarnations is going on? I just ate Special K Multi-Grain Crackers!
I consulted with Greedy Kid #1 to get the teen interpretation of the phrase, “really, really good”. In teenage talk these Special K Crackers are “Hot, Fire, and Official“. Wanna try some?
The crackers come as one inch multi-grain baked squares with nice texture and cool designer ridges. They taste similar to Wheat Thins minus the saltiness, but Special K is superior because it has a better, more natural multi-grain flavor with an added side of pleasant sweetness in the aftertaste. This sweetness also had me a bit skeptical of artificial sweeteners, so I did a double check on the nutrition label, but all I found was sugar and honey. Too bad the Italian Tomato and Herb version contains High Fructose Corn Syrup. I won’t be buying those.
Warning! Do not snack on these crackers straight out of the box because you will eat more than the serving size. You might want to opt for the 6-count box of 90 calorie individual pouches instead. Special K Multi-Grain Crackers are definitely worth picking up.

Reactions from the Taste Test Crew
Health-hater Husband – I feel like I’ve had these before. They remind me of Wheat Thins, but sweet. I’m not sure which I like more.
Greedy Kid #1 – Mmmm…these are really good! Kind of like Wheat Thins but less salty. I still like Wheat Thins better.
Greedy Kid #3 – These are so good and they’re neat. They’re sweet.
Yum Up! to: Designer crackers that can stand up against good ‘ole Wheat Thins.
Yuck Down! to: Eating too many straight out of the box before dinner and using up the calories I reserved for dessert.
