Review: Nabisco - Cinnamon Kick Wheat Thins Stix

Relatively new, Nabisco's Cinnamon Kick Wheat Thins Stix feature the taste of cinnamon with a kick in a cylindrical, crunchy, baked stick.

An 8-ounce box costs about the same as a regular box of Wheat Thins at $3.50 or around $2 on sale.

The box itself is slightly tapered like some movie popcorn container. The top of the box folds down a bit which is convenient if you're having a party and don't have a bowl handy or if you are going to polish off the box in one sitting.

These didn't taste like I was expecting. When I think of cinnamon, I think of sweet. You know, like cinnamon toast, cinnamon buns, and what not. These are actually a savory snack which is interesting but a little weird. I mean there's a bit of that wheat-y sweetness of Wheat Thins but mostly, it's savory. Cinnamon? Yes. Sweet? Not so much.
Additionally, Cinnamon Kick Wheat Thin Stix have actually got a bit of a kick. Jalapeno juice is listed in the ingredients so there you go. Plan accordingly.

In texture, it's more like a toasted breadstick than the standard Wheat Thin with a nice crunch.

Overall, while interesting and certainly worth a try if you like novel snacks, I'm a bit iffy about these and probably wouldn't get them again.

  1. I went to four stores over the week-end looking for the Nabisco Cinnamon Kick stix - Shop 'n Save, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Schnucks - no one had the cinnamon flavor. What's going on? Please don't tell me Nabisco is going to quit making them. They are the best and I was sooo disappointed that I couldn't find them.
