Austin Vs. Keebler Crackers

EAT THIS INSTEAD

January 12, 2009|By KATE SHATZKIN

Trans fat alert: When you're buying peanut butter crackers from the vending machine or the grocery store, check the label if you can. Austin Cheese Crackers with Peanut Butter look virtually the same as Keebler Cheese & Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, but they contain 2 grams trans fat per single-serving package. The Keebler version has none.
