Triscuit • Wheat Thins

Posted on

field-of-wheatEven before I could count past eleven, I knew there was a difference between “adult snacks” and the stuff pawned upon non-voting kittle.  Within the latter group I waited.  Better nibbles would have to wait until I could see over the kitchen counter.

When calories consumed surpass necessary, appreciation of a good snack increases.  If you’re gonna snack, go for the good stuff.  Triscuits and hummus.  Maybe some Cracker Barrel Asagio, olives, a few pepperochini with your Wheat Thins?  Don’t forget the pickles!  WHEN is our Vlasic article coming out!?!  Product testing calls ~

Editor’s note:  From the very start  AmericanToolbox has endeavored to present entertaining, positive, and non-political articles on American products, people, and companies.  With sadness we learn Mondelēz,  parent company of  Nabisco,  is laying off half their Chicago workforce.  Associated production will be performed at an upgraded plant in Mexico.

I stopped purchasing York Peppermint Patties when production moved from Reading PA to Mexico.  The days of buying four or five packages of Oreos to take to the kid’s birthday parties may likewise be coming to a close.

Support American Nabisco workers in the following ways:

1) Check the Label: There are two ways to know if your Nabisco snacks are made in the U.S. or Mexico:

  • Check for the words “Made in Mexico” under the ingredient list
  • Check the plant identification code, which is part of the expiration date code: do not buy if the initials “MM” or “MS” are listed.  The initials AE, AH, AP, AX, AZ and XL all indicate American-made products.
