I have this theory as a food blogger. Well, it’s not really a “theory” so much as it is fact, and I’m not really a “food blogger” so much as I am “an idiot with a website.” But the fact is this…

Nobody cares about Triscuits.

I’ve learned this fact on multiple occasions. Nabisco launches new flavors of Triscuits fairly often, so I share them to my social media pages to spread the word. One time I posted about Sriracha Triscuits and lost ten followers on Instagram. Ten people that used to like the material I provided were so disgusted or disinterested that they severed ties with me completely.

If anything is going to make people care about Triscuits again, it’s Nabisco Pumpkin & Spice Triscuit.

Except I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t care about Nabisco Pumpkin & Spice Triscuit. Because they are just ok – like every other Triscuit.

I got a promising whiff of pumpkin spice when I opened the box. Mostly cinnamon, but good enough for the smell test. Then I tried one and tasted no spice at all. Just wheat with a tiny bit of extra sweetness that fled soon thereafter.

Pumpkin & Spice Triscuits use pumpkin powder in the recipe. Too bad pumpkin doesn’t have much taste on its own. Nabisco completely forgot the “& Spice,” and the product is boring as a result.

Anyway, whatever. The real reason I bought Nabisco Pumpkin & Spice Triscuit was to add various toppings to the crackers. That’s how you’re supposed to eat Triscuits, after all. I assembled a great list of pumpkin items to place atop my pumpkin Triscuits.

w/ Pumpkin Spice Gouda Cheese

I saved this cheese for three weeks to do this, and it wasn’t very gouda. That’s not me being punny; it didn’t taste like gouda. Or pumpkin spice. Meh.

w/ Hostess Pumpkin Spice Cupcake

Much better. The Hostess Pumpkin Spice Cupcake reminded me that everything is significantly better than Triscuits.

Things escalated in a hurry. This Triscuit with Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream was very cold and hurt my teeth a little.

    #alltriscuitsmatter ?

    But in reality, not. Simply a delivery mechanism for anything else other than eating it plain and coughing out dry triscuit bits.

    Agreed, but if you’re gonna cover them in pumpkin & spice, I should be able to taste at least one of those things.
