I like these crackers so much, that have been buying them by the case for YEARS! In the last couple of years I have received cartons that have had an "off" flavor. So "off" that I won't eat them. I THINK the peanut butter has gone bad, though the freshness date says they're fine. I have complained to Nabisco several times about this, with no resolution. I buy two cases at a time, and the last time one carton was its yummy self and the other was inedible. I WISH I could depend on them being great all the time, because they are fantastic with a nice cup of tea! For the good ones, it should be 5 stars, but because I can't count on the flavor, I took away a star.
