Wheat Thins

Wheat Thins are a popular baked cracker snack found in North America, distributed by Nabisco in the US and Canada, and in Australia through wholesaler USA Foods.[1] Vegetable Thins, Oat Thins, Pita Thins, and Rice Thins, which are all spinoffs of Wheat Thins, are available in Canada and some regions of the United States. Wheat Thins come in many variations.

The snack is still well known by some for its late 1970s ad campaign starring Sandy Duncan. A more recent commercial aired during Super Bowl XLVI featuring Brian and Stewie from cartoon series Family Guy, in which Stewie puts emphasis on the "H" in "Wheat", saying "Hwheat Thins."
