Tasty Saltines

POST #    1537

I have this strange love of saltines. When hungry, I can eat big package in under 20 minutes, which is certainly not a good thing. But they are just so tasty. Salt, carbs, and almost flavorless - wait, flavorless isn't a good thing, is it. Of course, one side affect of this is thirst. For the rest of the day, I'm usually hungry. And all those calories with little to no nutrition can't be good either.

Also good with saltines, honey and soup. Unfortunately, I don't usually have either. And that whole thing with six saltines in a minute? I've only accomplished that once.

btw, it's kind of weird to read your post, posted at 7:55 am when it's only 7:16 am here.

I love saltines, too. Is it 6 saltines all at once, or just in a minute? I could totally eat six of them in under a minute.

wait, rachelle, did i actually do it that day? if so, then maybe i've done it like 3 times.

corie, it's 6 in one minute. not necessarily all at once. it's harder than you think. oh yeah, no water.

saltines and honey and soup? all together? or, saltines and honey (add peanut butter!)/ saltines and soup?

I definitely can't do the 6-in-1 minute saltine challenge. We should have a saltine-eating fancy sock superbowl party!

Great photo! Saltines and butter are also good.

I can easily eat a bag (column?) of saltines in one sitting.

Look away... I'm hideous!

matt.. but they're really hard to eat fast. my technique of eating them all at the same time obvs didnt work.

I've only hit 4 in a minute but had a college roommate who hit 7 'cause he didn't have a gag reflex and could swallow things dry. Ok, that doesn't sound right.

They are especially helpful when you are knocked up, having morning sickness, and you think you may hurl on the subway. One saltine does the trick and you feel fine.

Also, great pic

I got 7 in a minute, and 7 in 62 seconds, those are my first and second attempts. I bet I could pull 8.
