Product Description

Flavor: Sesame | Size: 7 Ounce (Pack of 12)

Product Description

Founded in 1919, Wasa has become the largest crispbread baker in the world, selling its products in 40 countries, from Scandinavia to America. The Wasa Bakeries are situated in Filipstad, Sweden and in Celle, Germany. These two locations bake our crispbread and our other products for countries all over the world. Wasa joined with the international food company, Barilla, in 1999 and has since flourished within this company. We pride ourselves on bringing families across the globe the healthy, great taste of Sweden’s favorite cracker.

About the Brand

Wasa is the world's largest producer of crispbread. Every year the company sells around 60,000 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.

It has a very thick, satisfying crunch and a nice, bland rye flavor.

Flavor Name: HeartySize Name: 9.7 Ounce (Pack of 12)
My grandpa used to tell stories about eating this stuff in his Army days. They called it "hardtack" or just simply "tack". It also seems to be a Swedish staple food. I grew up in Texas so it is kind of hard to find around here, especially the hearty rye kind. One time I went to purchase a few packages of it at the local "gourmet food and liquor" store and the cashier warned me someone had returned it because it was "stale". I told her that they must have been clueless, cause that's how its SUPPOSED to taste. The stopped carrying it soon after. I'll just have to start special-ordering it. It's cheaper here, anyway..

I've tried many other Wasa crispbreads and I always come back to this one. Nothing compares to the hearty rye. It has a very thick, satisfying crunch and a nice, bland rye flavor. I eat it with anything and everything, or even by itself. It's great if you spread butter on it and eat it with soup. Other examples: tuna fish, cheese, lunchmeat, peanut butter, ice cream, salsa verde, chocolate pudding, Wolf chili, banana slices, SPAM, etc. Be creative.

It NEVER GOES STALE, so don't worry too much about sealing up the package. I believe that's a design principle in all hardtacks (see wikipedia). In my opinion, it only gets better with age. In reality, there is negligible difference between the freshly opened package and the months-old package. Same crunch, same flavor. It's like bread, but without the possibility of mold. Oh, it's also healthy and stuff. Lots of fiber.

I highly recommend the hearty rye. Buy a few cases now to prepare for Y2012 :)

Flavor Name: SourdoughSize Name: 9.7 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
Needing to lose a few pounds, I was looking for an alternative to my usual potato chips and pretzels. Also, I wanted to reduce my daily salt intake.

I learned about Wasa crispbread from a favorable Consumer Reports review. So, I decided to give 'em a try. The texture and "mouth feel" is like eating a hard cracker. But unlike other brands of hard crackers, the Wasa "sourdough" crispbread actually has some flavor and decent taste, with just a hint of salt. I like the slight tang of the "sourdough" rye crispbread; which is my favorite. Taste vary - but I like and recommend the Wasa "sourdough" crispbread.

Flavor Name: 7 GrainSize Name: 4.9 Ounce (Pack of 10)
I love Wasa Crisp 'n Light crackers! As their name suggests, they do have a very light and crisp texture. They are still strong enough to support hummus or other spreads you may like to use. However, they are also very delicious by themselves. Sometimes you just want something to crunch without wasting a lot of calories on chips or other fattening foods, and a stick of celery isn't what you had in mind. I keep these in the pantry all the time. They are low sodium and contain just 20 calories per cracker.

Flavor Name: Multi GrainSize Name: 9.7 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
For those who want to eat clean, I suggest to use other Wasa crispbreads (eg, sourdough crispbread). While the sourdough crispbread only uses whole grain rye flour, rye flour, water, yeast, dry sourdough, and salt - the multigrain crispbread ingredients include malt extract and emulsifiers.

Flavor Name: Light RyeSize Name: 9.5 Ounce (Pack of 12)
We found this to be a good and healthy alternative to the crackers we were buying. No trans-fats / hydrogenated oils, no enriched flours. Just simple ingredients such as rye flour! What do you you with them? Top with cream cheese, fruit, applesauce, tomato and cheese, or visit the producer's website. They have recipes and suggestions if you're starved for ideas.

I prefer the light rye over some of their other varieties - the taste is fairly plain, and not as hard and crunchy (I have sensitive teeth).

Flavor Name: SourdoughSize Name: 9.7 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
When I was diagnosed as diabetic, I decided to try to control my glucose with diet. One of the tools to limit my intake of carbohydrates is my Wasa Sourdough Rye. It tastes as good as bread, even better now that I have become used a lower carb intake. By not eating bread, potatoes, pasta, and high sugar foods, I have been able to keep my glucose levels at a very steady 70 to 110. I reccommend this product.

Great-tasting cracker, lots of fiber, good stats.

Buying in bulk from Amazon saves money, because they are far less expensive than in "gourmet" grocery stores.

Flavor Name: FiberSize Name: 8.1 Ounce (Pack of 12)
When my daughter and I started weight program we found these crackers in our local store and feel in love with them. We make tuna or chicken salad with low or fat free mayo and eat it for lunch. We use very little of our points and are very full. The taste is great and we love the cripyness that replaces the need for chips.
