How many saltines are in a sleeve?

Why do saltines have 13 holes?
The holes in the crackers are called docking holes.

This method reduces the air bubbles and ensures that the crackers are flat and crispy.
How do you make saltines taste better?
This is my favorite saltine hack. Melt a stick of butter in a large mixing bowl and add 2 tablespoons of dry spices. You can use dry Ranch mix, taco seasoning, or your favorite combination of spices. Toss a sleeve of saltines in the flavored butter until they’re coated and spread onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
Why do saltines make you feel better?
