I just found a new product at Wal-Mart called Pita Thins (Original flavour and Roasted Garlic flavour) by Christie (aka Kraft).

Ingreds for the Original flavour thins are enriched wheat flour, canola oil with TBHQ & citric acid, sea salt, cooking molasses, salt, yeast, dried yeast, vinegar.

I threw out the Roasted Garlic package but will try to post the ingreds when we get another pack.

I have had enough contact with Kraft to feel comfortable with their labelling so have not called.

If you want to call, the code for the Originals is 66721 01916 and the number is 1-800-668-2253.

My kids LOVE them. They are a bit salty, but what can you do. It's hard to find crackers that are free of dairy and egg so I am happy.

Karen, is the *ss* in the subject line mean *sesame seed free*?

Are these things in the bread section of the store?

I haven't managed to find them yet however I did call the company and they advised that their policy is to label for the priority allergens. They will either label as included in ingredients or a may contain and this is to include the possibility of cross contamination.
So, if you see a package, they are confident that you can trust reading the label (as long as your allergens are classed as priority).

Hi Karen, I looked for these today at my local Superstore, but couldn't find them (maybe I was looking in the wrong aisle!). I'll have to check out Walmart.

Yes - and I believe I put that because, like renie, I have called Kraft/Mr. Christie multiple times in the past and have always been told the same thing - they label for priority allergens and will indicate if they think there is a risk of cross-contamination. Obviously you could call to confirm.

By the way, we are finding that they are REALLY salty, so might not be the best snack for everyone.

By the way, the ones we found are in a sort of plastic bag with a ziplock at the top, and not a box.

See the commercial for them on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuQcWNim1Io - that is what the package looks like. (George Hamilton is extra ;) ).
