Review: Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins & What’s Your Best of 2015? Resolution Edition

JFG Nation, looking back on your New Year’s Resolutions of 2015, how’d they go?

If you’ll remember, my resolution for this past year was to EAT MORE PIZZA AND DRINK ALCOHOL MORE. So how’d it go? Pretty good, I think – between going to my favorite pizza place near my habitat and pizza laden trips to NYC, I think I upped my good pizza intake up to over 30 high quality pies this year! Golf clap to me! Now I don’t mean I ate 240 slices – I just meant I think I chowed on pizza for a meal more than 30 times this year. That’s still less than 10% of the year, and less than 3% of all meals if you count three meals a day for all 365 days. To reach 10% of my meals, I need to have eaten pizza 110 times this year –  whoa. I give myself an A for this half of my resolution.

That said, if you’ve been following my Instagram, my steak intake has unintentionally gone up to at least once a week. In an era where people are trying to eat less red meat, I’ve somehow increased the beast intake on my end. I think I had steak close to 40 meals this year. Mmmmm healthy. A+ for this unintended eating trend.

Booze intake? It was touch and go – I started strong, and then got pretty light toward the summer. This Fall I’ve ramped it up a bit more, but like anything, consistency is the key and I lacked it. C- effort. Get it together, ME.

So JFG Nation, what were some of YOUR 2015 resolutions, and how did they go? Let me know in the comments below.

Today’s New Year’s Eve junk food: Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins!!

Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins: The Money Shot

Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins: The Money Shot

Yes, JFG Nation, they did it. And by “they,” I mean the Nabisco overlords. And by “it,” I mean made these Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins. Thin-ass Wheat Thins. Was anyone looking for these? I know Cheez-Its made crispy Grooves, and Triscuits have Triscuit Thin Crisps…but thinner Wheat Thins? WHA?



Luckily my professional buddy, the Impulsive Buy, had a perfect breakdown on his Instagram (GO FOLLOW HIM):

So…yeah. That’s what you get.




Look, I can’t even keep a straight face while reviewing these Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins – THEY ARE JUST THINNER WHEAT THINS. They smell like Wheat Thins. They look like Wheat Thins. Are they thinner?


Welll, sure these Limited Edition Even Thinner Wheat Thins are thinner, but so what? The texture, honestly, is pretty much the SAME as Wheat Thins – there is no real extra crispiness or chip-like feel to these. Honestly if you poured these in a bowl and didn’t tell me these were the thin version, I WOULDN’T EVEN KNOW. The thinness is not distinct enough for me to notice, is what I’m saying.

Taste? THEY TASTE EXACTLY LIKE WHEAT THINS. That almost slightly-sweet-dough-cracker. That is all.

I wanna say this was a let down, but I love Wheat Thins, so of course I crushed this box. But worth buying? Meh.

    Meh I like the idea. I can have more crackers per serving = more opportunities for toppings and the thinness won’t overpower said toppings. However I like a flavoured thin… Conundrum!!!

      @Sylvia: I don’t see why Wheat Thins COULDN’T do flavored thins…er, flavored THINNER thins….maybe 2016 will bring your wish to life!

    Why not “stuffed” wheat thins. Have a type of filling in there and sandwich it. Maybe like a cheese filling or a sweet wheat thins. Shortcake wheat thins. Or something.

    I want Wheat THICKS. That would show creativity.

    How about Rex taking down my hated Jets. Wow, I enjoyed that.
