Have you noticed them recently – these boxes of Christie Triscuits. I turned around one day at the grocery store and there they were, a whole variety of Christie Triscuit crackers just screaming to be tasted. I mean, the flavours were all so intriguing and they all sounded so tasty. They also happened to be on sale so after much consideration, I ended up with a box of Christie Triscuit seasoned with dill, sea salt, and olive oil.
These are definitely not your everyday Triscuits.
Product review: What ingredients are in the Christie Triscuit seasoned with dill, sea salt, and olive oil?
Here are the ingredients that went into making the Christie Triscuit seasoned with dill, sea salt, and olive oil: whole grain wheat, vegetable oil, seasoning (corn maltodextrin, sea salt, dillweed, garlic powder, onion powder, disodium phosphate, citric acid, spices, natural flavour, olive oil).
Love that whole grain wheat is the first ingredient as it should be, not a big fan that vegetable oil is next but then again, I like that the word “hydrogenated” doesn’t show up anywhere on that list. There are a few ingredients I wonder about but for the most part, they’re all recognizable so that’s a good thing.
Taste Test: how does the Christie Triscuit seasoned with dill, sea salt, and olive oil taste?
If you’ve had a Triscuit before, you’ll know it’s signature taste: it’s crisp, it’s wheaty, and it’s a little salty otherwise, it’s pretty generic and goes well with cheese or other toppings. Well, these Triscuits are so much more complex. It builds on the class Triscuit foundation and tops it with a whole lot of ‘wow’.
You can definitely taste the dill and it’s certainly savory. I don’t know if I can pinpoint the exact flavours from the other ingredients (e.g. the onion and garlic) but I’m sure they add to that savory profile. I have to be honest though, while I like these new upgraded jazzed up Triscuits, they are a bit salty for me to just snack on them. They would probably pair better with a mild cheese or cream cheese of some sort, maybe topped with a fruit to balance out the flavours. As they are, I could only eat about 2 or 3. The hubby also liked them but the big kid wouldn’t go near them. She prefers the classic Triscuit and has never been a fan of dill. EVER.
It’s nice to have some Triscuits lying around the home. The Christie Triscuit seasoned with dill, sea salt, and olive oil certainly is better for you than a bag of chips. Quite frankly, I just haven’t had any interest eating chips so I’m quite happy to have these in the home. With such an intense flavour profile, you only need a few to feel satisfied. Pair them with cheese or another mild dip and you’ll really have a party!
