Cheese. It’s comfort food. It’s an exotic getaway in your mind. It’s (sometimes) better than sex. Cheese can help you transform – eat a soft stinky cheese to become a posh, uppity snob in a fancy house. Or on the other end of the spectrum, you can spray it out of a can onto a cracker and embrace your chubby side. We love cheese, because cheese is life.
Naturally, we are enamoured with Cheez-It. This is one company that definitely has a great marketing team behind them.
From the super fun You Choose the Champion campaign to innovative textures of the Cheez-It Grooves, and the ever creative Cheez-It Duoz, they are always coming up with something badass. And cheesy, of course. So, we’re proud to introduce the latest invention from Cheez-It…. *drum roll*…. Cheez-It Snap’d!
These are thin, crispy Cheez-It snacks that combine cheese with other popular snack flavors. Oh yes, they went there. Double Cheese (marrying cheese + cheese is genius), Jalapeño Jack, Cheddar Sour Cream & Onion, and White Cheddar & Bacon. If you aren’t drooling, step aside and allow us to drool for you and munch down on these bad boys for the first time.
Jason’s Take: I wanna take a second to just talk about how amazing the texture is on these new Snap’d snacks. Thin, crispy, crunchy, and chip-like. This Double Cheese flavor is a bold cheddar flavor that I know you’ll absolutely love because it tastes like a bolder Cheez-It! Delicious.
Jeni’s Take: Cheese + Cheese = GENIUS! These are a bold cracker/chip that scream, “I AM A DAIRY PRODUCT!” It’s got a great crunch to it and that salty, creamy cheddar comes at you hard. My mouth watered while these were in my mouth. If that doesn’t tell you how good they are, I give up.
Jason’s Take: Creamy jack cheese hits your tongue right away, leaving me wondering where the jalapeno part of the flavor was? Ahhh there it is. As soon as you swallow, the heat hits you. It’s a very mild heat that goes perfectly with the jack cheese. We all know of pepper jack cheese — this is pretty much what it tastes like!
Jeni’s Take: I absolutely love Jack Cheese. I do not like jalapeno. I’m not a spicy fan – however, the kick on these was totally worth it because of that milky Jack Cheese. I’m all about these, which is pretty surprising, because that heat in the back of my tongue and throat is usually uncomfortable. Pairing it with Jack really toned it down and let the actual flavor of jalapeno come out.
Jason’s Take: Wow. The cheddar meets sour cream & onion perfectly in this flavor. A bold cheddar flavor is followed the sour cream portion to make for a creamy, tangy, cheddary, delicious snack. These are sure to be a hit with absolutely everyone.
Jeni’s Take: This might be my favorite chip combination ever. And holy crap, they nailed it. I absolutely love the flavors that came out in this cracker/chip – the kick of the green onion, the tang of sour cream and that bold creaminess and saltiness of the cheddar. Perfect marriage in this combo.
Jason’s Take: OMG!! Smokey bacon and bold white cheddar combine to make my favorite flavor! The white cheddar is is smooth, tangy, and downright delicious. The smokey bacon flavor compliments it so well and you’re left with heavenly snack that won’t disappoint.
Jeni’s Take: Lord, take me now. I just ate the most badass chip/cracker thing ever! That stout white cheddar’s tang seriously married with the salty, smokey bacon flavor. Ok, I changed my mind. This is my favorite now… maybe. Damnit, they are all so good!
So, are you drooling NOW? If not, please remove yourself, as you do not belong here. All of you other Worshippers of the Cheese, your life is not complete until you have had these tasty treats! The flavor match-ups are absolutely perfect and make total sense. Bow down to Cheese, fellow dairy fans, and behold, Cheez-It Snap’d!
