Pros: Light, buttery, satisfying
During the long, cold, Alaskan winters I love to make soup for lunch and dinner. I grew up on good old Saltine crackers with my soup, buy my husband really prefers Keebler Club Crackers over Saltines.
These come in a bright green box, with the words "Original" scrolled across the front on a red banner. The picture on the front of the box shows the actual size of the crackers.
The bpx is 16 ounce, or as Keebler calls it, the one pounder. It claims that these crackers are "light, flaky, and buttery".
The back of the box says their taste makes everything taste better.
Inside the box, there are three clear cellophane sleeves, each containing about 50 crackers (they don't each hold the identical amount). The box states that 4 crackers are a serving, and the box serves "about 32", so there should be around 128 or so crackers in each box. They measure 2 1/2" by 1 1/4".

My family likes these crackers a lot, and I always try to have them on hand. I kind of consider them the "Ritz" of all saltine style crackers. They are almost a cross between a rich Ritz and a Saltine, although they have much less salt on them than a Saltine. You have to turn the cracker just right to even see any salt granules, but they are there.
This might be a bit of a stretch, but they are so buttery they almost remind me of a shortbread cookie! That's how good these taste. One of my early daycare arrivers is watchiing me write this review, and said "oh, can we have those with cheese for snack today?" I haven't met a child who doesn't love Keebler Club Crackers!
Aside from just eating them with soup or as a appetizer, we find them handy for a few other reasons. When I have an upset stomach I always munch on a few of these crackers. Last week I had a touch of the stomach flu with nausea, and when nothing else sounded or tasted good, these crackers set well on my stomach.
If you've had too much to drink, these substitute nicely for that piece of bread, and when I have medicine that needs to be taken with food, but I don't want a meal, I often depend on Club crackers to help defer the possible stomach irritation.
Another plus to the Club crackers is they don't crumble! That makes serving these to my daycare children much less work for me! I hate cleaning up crumbs from the table and floor!
I picked up my last box at WalMart on sale for $2.00, they normally sell for almost a dollar more. I've purchased a store brand look alike cracker in the past, but they don't taste nearly as good as the Keebler Club brand. They are a great little cracker!
