Jatz Crackers – Arnott’s finally answers the burning question

As a big fan of the humble Jatz Cracker, I’ve long wondered (since a child, actually) what the singular of a Jatz Cracker is.

After discussing it with friends over the weekend & coming no closer to a conclusion, I thought I’d bite the bullet and ask the people who make them! Here’s how it went down…

 

My email to Arnott’s:

Hello there. I have a question that’s been bugging me for some years: What is the singular of a Jatz cracker? It is “Jatz”, or “Jat”? For example, would you say: “May I please have a Jat?” or would you say “May I please have a Jatz?”. Thank you for your time & assistance. Regards, Andy (Jatz Fan)

 

Their reply:

Dear Andy, thank you for your email to Arnott’s Biscuits. In all instances you would say, or call, it a “Jatz”. I hope this helps.

 

So there you have it… the correct phrasing is “Can you please pass me a Jatz” – even if you only want one.

    So then you should ask what is the plural of Jatz?

      Haha... maybe the plural is a "Jatzs"? or "Jatzulae" (similar to the plural of Formula being Formulae :-P)

    Thanks Andy (jatz fan). From one jatz fan to another jatz fan I share the same concerns about the singular use of the humble jat. I wholeheartedly support your campaign for the promotion of the jat and I have a degree in communication and I just ate a fucking jat (regular occurrence). Let me know if ya wanna discuss this fucking travesty.

    Yours sincerely,
    Anna
