Saltines, Soda Crackers, Whatever...

Caroline1 | May 24, 200810:38 AM     28

I used to love soda crackers. Gimme a can of sardines and a pack of crackers and you had one happy camper! But no more. The sardines are still good, but soda crackers have gone away. I first noticed it with store brands a couple of years ago. They tasted like a cross between raw potatoes and raw flour. Not good. So I only bought premium crackers. Then it happened to them too.

Up until last week, I could still come by decent crackers by ordering a 99 cent cup of chili at Wendy's, then begging for more crackers. Then, about three days ago, Wendy's crackers bit the dust too. <sigh>

Has anyone else noticed this? Have saltines become unsaltinely, or have my taste buds moved away from home? Is it real?
