*UPDATE* – I had a second bag of the crackers, and they were definitely more crackery. While still not my favorite cheesy cracker combo, I would actually rank them higher than the original Cheez-It’s. Apparently I don’t hate them that much, since I just finished off an entire box for “dinner” yesterday.
Is it somehow possible for a cracker to be both crunchy AND chewy, as if it just spent the entire day in a sauna with a bunch of old business tycoons?
I ask this because that’s exactly the experience I had today when I finally tried the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Crackers. Maybe the little snack pack I tried was a faulty batch, but damn if it wasn’t one of the grossest experiences of my life. It was as if someone had powdered stale oyster crackers with the “magical yellow cheese powder” of our youths.
I have a couple more snack packs, so I’ll definitely be eating them a second (and third) time. Maybe if I wish REAL hard or pray to the Cheesasaurus Rex, my second experience will be better than my first.
But if not these definitely fall to the bottom of cheese-flavored cracker list, right under the original Cheez-Its. No one has come close to dethroning the Cheez-It Twisterz for the heroin-like grasp they have over me.
As an aside, does anyone else find the commercial for the actual crackers a little weird? I mean, eat a cracker and get blasted by a golden shower of cheese? Um. Ew.
