are breadsticks a type of cracker?

This page seems surprisingly short. How about adding crackers in pop culture?

Inconsistent information: Here, animal crackers are described as definitely crackers, whereas on the animal crackers page, the subject is considered a "debate" and given no sure answer. I think "animal crackers" should be changed, as they are technically crackers (crackers may be sweet, they just usually are not...)

I changed the page to settle and neutralize the petty debate over crackerdome or cookieism. I hope this will make the page look less juvenile, as it would contradict itself from one sentence to the next.

Disputed Section[edit]

"A popular snack is salted crackers with cheese and butter as a topping." Another user requested a citation for this statement,and rightly so. While putting cheese on a cracker is common enough, the addition of butter as well seems unusual. Perhaps a regional variation, or even a personal preference being espoused by an individual? Unless a reference can be provided that this is "popular", i.e. common usage, this statement should be removed, or revised to specify a localized variation if appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:53, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

I would just add butter to the intro where it lists common accompanying foods, and delete this sentence, which doesn't belong in the "Types" section. Richard K. Carson (talk) 01:37, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

In Leicester, where I am from it is common to eat crackers with both butter and cheese. I think its the same all over England, but would appreciate verification. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:06, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

"Hoover lunch" cracker[edit]

Herbert Hoover wrote in his memoirs about a special cracker which was invented for the Belgian Relief during World War I and became a part of the so called "Hoover lunch". What did it look like?--- (talk) 13:02, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem here, due to a wrestle between the American and English term cracker. There is evidence that the page began in reference to the English term cracker, which refers to water biscuits, and the page has changed to become a confusion between american crackers, which include a different set of food. I'd suggest making a UK crackers page and a USA crackers page to clear up the confusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:00, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
