No, your eyes are not tricking you. The salty, round cracker you see pictured above is indeed a saltine. Saltines aren’t round, you say? They’re square with those little ridges on two sides? Well, my friend, the times they are a changing. Nabisco Premium has changed the shape of its legendary cracker.
Is it my imagination that the shape affected the taste? Am I the only one who tastes a difference? Yes, I know square saltines can still be found–from other brands, the ones I previously rejected because they weren’t the original.
What will they change next? How about peanut butter? Yes, I read this article on peanut butter slices, but, don’t worry, unlike saltines, you can still get pb in the jar to dip your saltines in.
