In a Biskit

In a Biskit is a line of snack crackers produced by Nabisco. Originally released in the United States as Chicken in a Biskit in early 1964,[1] the line has since grown to be available internationally with a variety of flavours. In the U.S., the product is flavoured with dehydrated cooked chicken,[2] but international formulations differ because of varied manufacturing. While Australian Kraft Chicken in a Biskit (manufactured in China[3]) lists chicken meat among the ingredients, an independent chemistry assay detected "no protein from any meat species" in the product.[4]

Chicken in a Biskit cracker

In Australia, Nabisco also produced Vegemite, bacon and nacho flavoured "biskits", as well as more traditional flavours such as barbecue, crispy potato and salt and vinegar. In a Biskit crackers are packaged in a 175–200 gram box or a "Multi-pack" containing 10 bags of 25 grams each. Multi-packs are used in several Nabisco products and were introduced as part of the In a Biskit line in August 1999. All the 'In a Biskit' range were discontinued in spring 2015 in Australia.[5]

In the United States, the Chicken in a Biskit and Swiss in a Biskit variants are currently available as part of a line of crackers known as Flavor Originals that includes Better Cheddars, Sociables and Vegetable Thins. Chicken in a Biskit is available in original and barbecue flavors.
