Taste test: If I needed to come up with one adjective to describe Wheat Thins, it would be "thin." And if I had to list the most obvious complaints about Wheat Thins, the last thing to come to mind would be, "Not thin enough!"
But apparently the folks who make Wheat Thins figured some people do want an even thinner Wheat Thin, and thus, we have this Even Thinner version.
The crackers inside the box were indeed thin, with square shapes measuring a bit over an inch on each side. We didn't have any regular Wheat Thins on hand for a comparison, but when we shared the crackers with a large group of snackers, it didn't jump out at people that they were all that much thinner, as some were wondering whether they were thinner at all. The crackers had a good solid crunch and were not brittle, even in this thinner form. They tasted like Wheat Thins, with the same tasty mix of wheat, sugar and salt.
This did mark the first time that we've ever seen the word "Awesomier" in a snack package's marketing copy, after reading more than 7000 of them during 15+ years of snack reviewing.

Smell test: Good sweet wheat smell, just like regular (Thick?) Wheat Thins.
From the package: “Limited Edition” ... “The next dimension in delicious – try for yourself.” ... “Even Thinner Wheat Thins have 21g whole grain per 30g serving. Nutritionists recommend eating 48g or more whole grain throughout the day.”
