NEWS: Nabisco To Add Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Salsa To Their Wheat Thins Lineup

New Wheat Thins on shelf

Update: Click here to read our Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Salsa Wheat Thins review

Nabisco has yet to make a Wheat Thins flavor I don’t enjoy. They’re really good at combining whole grain wheat flour, soybean oil, cornstarch, malt syrup, and a bunch of seasonings to make crunchy snacks that make me feel like I’m eating something healthier than potato chips.

Last year, Nabisco introduced their Smoky BBQ Wheat Thins, which got a positive review not only from us, but also several of our fellow review bloggers. This year, if a couple of placeholder pages on Amazon are correct, Nabisco plans to soon release two new Wheat Thins flavors — Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Salsa.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know me likey the spicy, so I’m looking forward to the Spicy Buffalo flavor. Although, I also believe zesty is besty, so I can’t wait to try the Zesty Salsa Wheat Thins.

A serving of Zesty Salsa Wheat Thins has 140 calories, 5 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 180 milligrams of sodium, 21 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

  1. I did a survey last year about potential new Wheat Thins flavors. These were the 2 most mundane options on the list. I figured they’d choose these instead of taking a risk.

  2. IF they do the Buffalo right and add a hint of bleu cheese to the mix, I may try them. Most things fail miserably when it comes to a non liquid version of wing sauce (Lay’s Hot Molten Wings for example). I love Wheat Thins but also though the Smokey BBQ failed, the flavoring tasted like an afterthought.

  3. I have both the Spicy Buffalo & Zesty but haven’t got to trying the Zesty yet. In my opinion they made the Spicy Buffalo perfect, not to strong and not to weak.

  4. Found both at WalMart today. Zesty Salsa is MUCH better. Buffalo is OK but underwhelming in taste, but not heat. I won’t bother buying Buffalo again but Salsa is on my hit parade.
