In a Biskit

In a Biskit is a line of snack crackers produced by Nabisco. Originally released in the US as Chicken in a Biscuit in early 1964,[1] the line has since grown to be available internationally with a variety of flavours. In the U.S., the product is flavoured with dehydrated cooked chicken,[2] but international formulations differ because of varied manufacturing. While Australian Kraft Chicken in a Biskit (manufactured in China[3]) lists chicken meat among the ingredients, an independent chemistry assay detected "no protein from any meat species" in the product.[4]

In Australia, Nabisco also produces vegemite, bacon, and nacho flavoured "biskits" (not locally known as "flavour crisps" despite popular belief), as well as more traditional flavours such as barbecue, crispy potato, and salt and vinegar. In a Biskit crackers are packaged in a 175–200 gram box or a "Multi-pack" containing ten bags of 25 grams each. Multi-packs are used in several Nabisco products, and were introduced as part of the In a Biskit line in August 1999.

In the United States, only the chicken flavor is available, as part of a line of crackers known as Flavor Originals that includes Better Cheddars, Sociables, and Vegetable Thins.
