Nabisco Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil Triscuit

Remember a few weeks ago when New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin took the NBA world by storm, creating the phenomenon known as Linsanity and the neologisms that soon followed, like Linspiration, Linderella, Linvincible, and Lincredible.

Well, there’s a dillicious baked whole grain wheat cracker that has caused a dillirious frenzy in the snack world. What snack has caused this dillirium? Why it’s the dillectable Triscuit Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil.

Look at how easy it is to come up with a bunch of made up words using “dill.” It’s not dillficult. BOOM! I did it again. It’s so simple I’m surprised Nabisco didn’t use one and put it on the Triscuit Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil box, not even “dillicious.” They only put boring words and phrases, like “100% Whole Grain”, “Good Source of Dietary Fiber”, and “May Help Reduce the Risk of Heart Disease.”

I wonder if avoiding neologisms was dilliberate. BAM! I am a verbal machine that dillivers! Oh snap! You can’t stop me, you can only hope to contain me!

To be honest, I’m surprised I put this box of Triscuit into my shopping cart because I’ve never really cared for them. I’ve always considered Triscuit crackers to be “not Wheat Thins” or “shredded wheat cereal rejects.” However, the combination of dill, sea salt, and olive oil compelled me to get over my Triscuit bias.

On the back of the Triscuit Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil box, there are two suggested topping recipes, smoked salmon & dill and tangy greek. The box also says what wine would go well with these hors d’oeuvre. (Pinot Grigio, in case you were wondering.) Well, I recommend you avoid the topping and wine suggestions and just open the bag of Triscuit, stick your paw in the bag, pull out a handful of crackers, and stuff them into your mouth, because, just like women on a European beach, they’re quite wonderful topless.

Nabisco Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil Triscuit Closeup

Each woven whole grain soft white winter wheat cracker has noticeable specks of dill, and after I ate a couple I started seeing the sea salt granules build up on my fingers. A wonderful sour dill flavor, which kind of reminded me of pickles, was all I could taste when I put this cracker in between my food mashers. However, after several chews, the dill dissipated and was replaced by the garlic and onion powder added to the cracker. Also, at this time, the sea salt was slightly noticeable. But I really wish the dill flavor hung around longer.

Overall, the Nabisco Dill Sea Salt & Olive Oil Triscuit crackers are a satisfying crunchy snack and I think they’ve helped me get over my Triscuit bias. They are dillightful and Lincredible.

Pros: Wonderful dill flavor. Crunchy. 22 grams of whole grain per serving. Reminds me of pickles. Decent source of fiber. Doesn’t need toppings. My ability to coin new words using “dill.”
Cons: Dill flavor needs to hang around longer. Putting smoked salmon on a Triscuit. My Triscuit bias. My ability to coin new words using “dill” since I’ll probably only use it for this review.

      Me too! It happened today. My mother had never tried the “Dill Sea Salt &Olive Oil.” Triscuits so today she tried them, started coughing and coughing almost choking. She recovered and then it happened to me! But even worse!
      Be careful eating these. They are really tasty but beware.

    I definitely have trouble picturing you drinking pinot giogio while reviewing a product. These do sound pretty good though. If you could buy them on sale would it be a “Dill Deal”?

  4. laura says:

    Today I realized that I like frequenting TIB to read about the junk food I won’t let myself eat. It’s almost as good as eating it myself. So, thanks for all the good times!

    Automatic disagreement due to your preference of wheat thins to Triscuit. â–’(0 â–¼ 0))) After trying this product I would say the strange dill taste is plenty in each trisdizzll and astoundingly gross after consuming a good amount (3 at once) with no topping. The olive oil adds a nice touch. Id say the dill would fare well with being left on the aisle rack. The original tricuits blow this shâ–’t out of the water.

    Marvo you are hilarious. I am dillighted by your clever writing!!

    I, also, never wanted to try Triscuits before I found these like a week ago. I now love them and googled them just to see what other people were saying,lol. They are great with homemade Peco-de-gio(sp?) with garden fresh tomatoes, onions, and crushed cilantro and dill seed. With Sweet iced tea to drink. I high recomend! Also if you are breastfeeding these Boost your supply,LOL! Whole wheat whole grains are always great for milk supply, but I found out after 2 days of extra milk (and eating a whole box by my self) I googled dill and it increase supply. Great gife for a new mom!

    P.S. I have since found rosmary and olive oil Triscuit try them!

    Garlic Triscuit Alert.

    Agreed, Dill, and Rosemary, and Rye are good. Garlic though is a problem for me. On the box it says ” No artificial flavors or MSG”, yet they list disodium inosinate, disodium gualanate (which are so MSG like, which is like a lie.
    I called up triscut, and they said they would take my complaint. Yada Yada. Sure, you bet.
    So, Triscuit, man up, Either change the “For 100 years… Simple…
    mantra, or zap the additives.
    Don’t claim the high ground, and weasel, “well there ISNT any MSG…”

    They are pretty good crackers, and I’ve managed to polish off a couple of boxes of them this month since I first tried them. I like ‘em plain, as well as with cream cheese and jalapeno pepper jelly, or with pepperoni slices and pepperjack cheese… :P

  10. Sean says:

    Agree with the review. I like the flavor, but it is a little mild, which I guess in the case of a pickle flavor, is a good thing. They are pretty good and I would buy them again.
