I don’t recall Shredded Wheat being quite so salty. Or so good with sardines.

No. Bigger and saltier.

Wait, I change my mind. They are both pretty much just shredded wheat with flavors added to them, right? I was thinking of a different Nabisco cracker before. I think you could say they are essentially the same thing. They only taste different cuz of the flaves.

@lilikoi doesn’t everything “taste different cuz of the flaves”? Those things that have different flavors and taste different, that is.

I vote yes. Just triskets have more salt and oil, while shredded wheat has neither but often is sweetened. Funny, I was wondering just this the other day…

@CyanoticWasp I’ll bet you anything he was thinking of Wheat Thins, which suck on toast. Triscuits and shredded wheat are both good, and they can both cut the roof of your mouth if you’re not careful. That’s as far into the GI tract as I’m willing to have this discussion.~ ;-)

@simone54 Check this out!

Nabisco makes its Triscuits in much the same way it makes its shredded wheat. (Both were invented in the 1890’s by Henry Perky, a middle-aged lawyer in Denver.) Wheat is slightly softened with water and steam so that it can go through a shredder and come out looking like ’‘fine spaghetti,’’ according to a company spokeswoman, Caroline Fee.

For shredded wheat, the strands are piled up, all strands running in the same direction, and then put through a cutter that forms the biscuits. To make Triscuits, the wheat is piled first in one direction and then in another. ’‘They’re not woven,’’ Ms. Fee said firmly.
