From The TESR Test Kitchen

Stauffer's Whales.

Ever heard of them?

We hadn't either.

Reader Robin e-mailed to suggest we put the snack crackers through The TESR Test Kitchen.

Most people -- including us -- have sampled the cheese crackers known as Goldfish.

They're tasty and have a snap.

So if Goldfish can do that, what can Whales do?

We were expecting a bolder taste, a bigger taste, with Whales.

It's not there.

Even the size is basically the same.

That's the bad.

The good is they taste as good as Goldfish.

That's actually really good news because while you might pay three dollars for a box of Goldfish, you can get a 7 ounce box of Whales for a dollar and a half -- in fact, you can get them for a dollar even at some grocery stores.

Same taste, less price.

You also get a little education with each box.

On the side, various facts are printed.  Here's one:

Is a whale a fish or mammal?

Whales are mammals who live in the water, breathe air into their lungs, are warm-blooded, feed milk to their young and have hair. 

All that for a buck-and-a-half or less.
