How Many Things Can Adam Jam Into His Mouth?

Hello and welcome to another edition of a game that we’re calling:
How Many Things Can Adam Jam Into His Mouth?

Look!  I shot this one in my kitchen — in front of my hideous wallpaper.  Yay!

Each time that we play this game, I’ll take a whole bunch of objects and jam then into my big mouth.
Then you’ll guess how many of that object fit inside of me.  And then later, I’ll reveal the results.

For this round, I’ve chosen: Nabisco Multigrain Wheat Thins. Wheat Thins are a popular baked snack cracker found in North America, distributed by Nabisco, a subsidiary of Kraft Foods Global Inc.  While most varieties of Wheat Thins are square, the Multigrain variety are hexagons.

So how many of these crackers can I fit into my mouth?

Leave your guesses in the comments!

And I’ll reveal the results tomorrow at noon!
