What to Eat With Wheat Thins: 9 Delicious Ideas

Wheat Thin crackers are a crunchy, delicious snack cracker that is popular for its irresistible appeal when paired with an array of toppings and spreads. Their simple presentation is perfect for any number of embellishments.

I love how their hearty whole wheat flavor adds a rustic touch to any topping. When eaten with creamy spreads, such as hummus or a nice cheese spread, they create a fabulous blend of textures and tastes that can fill you up and leave you satisfied.

Whether sweet or savory the toppings you choose can transform Wheat Thins into a healthy, guilt-free choice.

Here are a few of my personal favorites toppings:

Cream Cheese

Wheat Thins with cream cheese provides the optimal snack experience that combines the fabulous crunch of the crackers with the rich, creamy texture and sharp taste of the cheese. The first bite is always my favorite.

This is when the crispness and satisfying snap give way to a delicate crumble. The flavor of the cracker is mildly salty with a subtle hint of toasted goodness that dances on the taste buds. When dipped into a generous dollop of cream cheese, the mixture is transformed into an ace snack.

The mild tanginess of cream cheese compliments the Wheat Thin’s Saltiness, creating a balanced contrast that’s neither overpowering nor bland.

Red Pepper Jelly

Red Pepper jelly with Wheat Thins practically sends me over the moon. It combines contrasting flavors and textures in a healthful, balanced way that just makes me feel right with the world. The heat and sweetness from the jelly are perfect with the savory flavor of the crackers.

This flavor combo provides a Fourth July burst of bold jelly flavors that are tempered by the nutty notes created by the addition of the Wheat Thins.

I love this snack combination when I’m watching a movie on TV. It only takes about 5 minutes to create an entire plate of them.


Hummus comes in a variety of flavors, all of which work well with Wheat Thins. Our recipe is especially easy to make, and is full of rich, Middle Eastern spices and olive oil to give it an especially-notable “spreadability” that makes this snack extra special.

You will love how easy this hummus is to make, and will note how much better it tastes than store-bought hummus. It contains four simple ingredients and can be made in about 5 minutes.

The combination of garbanzo beans, Tahineh, fresh lemon juice and garlic make this hummus extra special, and unlike some hummus recipes, there is no need to add hummus to this version. It tastes delightful without it.

Southern Pimento Cheese

If you’ve tried everything else and are wondering what to put on wheat thins next, you should consider Southern Pimento Cheese. I love the complex flavor profile of the sharp cheese and pimento peppers with the contrasting textures and flavors that offer a real taste treat to the senses.

It is visually gorgeous, too, with the bright orange with flecks of bright red, so this makes a good party spread. The pimento cheese with a delicious Wheat Thin cracker provides one of the best, most flavorful snacks that I can think of.

You’ll love our recipe in its simplicity. Everyone will think you’ve spent hours in the kitchen, when you are actually able to whip it up in a matter of minutes. I like to serve mine chilled.

Cheese Spread With Garlic and Herbs

If you are a garlic lover like I am, you will love this fabulous cheese spread with garlic and herbs with Wheat Thins. Few snacks are as versatile and delicious. Every bite will remind you that you’ve made the right, most delicious choice.

The mingling of flavors lingers after the final bite has been swallowed. This combination is a testament to the perfect blending of delicious flavors, a smooth, creamy texture and the welcome crunch of the Wheat Thins.

Easy Homemade Pesto

Wheat Thins with pesto are an outstanding choice, especially when you use our easy homemade pesto recipe that instantly captivates the taste buds. The marriage of pesto and Wheat Thins is not only a culinary delight.

It is also a visual treat. The vibrant green of the pesto against the golden-brown crispness of the Wheat Thing is a definitive taste sensation suitable for parties or for snacking alone, I know you’ll love it.


My Bestie likes to say, “If it isn’t chocolate, it isn’t dessert!” If you agree with this sentiment, you are sure to enjoy the combination of Nutella spread with Wheat Thins. The Nutella, rich with deep chocolate and hazelnut flavors delights through its own special synergy of flavors. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

Cottage Cheese

If you’re still not sure what goes with wheat thins, consider the simple option of cottage cheese. The sharp, light taste of the cheese is a perfect pairing of salty nuttiness provided by the Wheat Thins.

This combination is a quick and easy way to prepare and is fully satisfying. Not only that, but it is nutritious! It is low in calories, and has a delicious flavor that can be embellished by adding other ingredients, such as chives or finely chopped onion. The possibilities are limitless. You may be surprised by how delicious this snack is.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

If you are considering what to put on wheat thins, but want something a little upscale, try them with Spinach Artichoke Dip! This is my go-to party dip. The dip recipe is very easy to whip up and virtually anyone can make it.

Best served hot, this creamy, crunchy, and delicious taste sensation is a hit every time. What’s not to love about it? Not only does it taste like a million bucks. It is inexpensive and easy to make. The white, melted cheese and bright green spinach provide mouth-watering visuals, and it smells divine while it is cooking.
