Review: Lance BOLDS Buffalo Wing Blue Cheese Crackers

If you haven?t figured it out, I?m just reviewing random snacks I already have in my work desk snack drawer.

Lance BOLDS Buffalo Wing Blue Cheese Cracker Sandwiches! The problem with most snacks that purport to be ?Buffalo Wing Flavored? could equally be labelled as ?Sorta Tastes Like Hot Sauce But Not Really? Flavored?. I?m always left disappointed. How do these cracker sandwiches stack up?

(Get it? Because you can stack them?)

It?s a step in the right direction. They?re definitely tasty. There?s just a little heat, as you would expect from a mainstream snack food. The difference here is the addition of blue cheese. It adds some extra dimension to the standard hot sauce flavor. Do they taste like eating at your local Wing Shack? No. But they?re a welcome distraction from staring at my computer screen all day.Interesting Note: I?ve been working out on my lunch breaks from time to time. I got back to my desk last week and thought ?MAN. I think I can smell my shoes. That?s so weird, they?re basically new. I guess I need to get some spray or something.? Ten minutes later, I tracked down the smell. These crackers smell like funky shoes.

 

But in a good way??

Review: Cheez-It Crunch’d

Alright folks, what do we have on the table today? Cheez-It Crunch’d! I’m going to be honest here. I’ve been wanting to try these out for months now, but I’ve been too cheap to actually spend 3 whole dollars on it. I guess it’s some weird hang up I should seek professional counsel for. Would I have taken a shot at $2.50, probably. But at THREE WHOLE DOLLARS? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND? But this article isn’t about me, it’s about this overly punctuated snack food.**

Let’s just get to it, are Cheez-It Crunch’d actually crunchy? YES. Exceedingly so, actually. I bought them for my cubicle at work and I am terrified to eat them with anyone around because they’re so DAMN loud. They are the loudest chip/snack/cracker that I can ever remember eating. If I want to have one and any of my cube neighbors are nearby, I have to slowly soften the Crunch’d with saliva before actually chomping down. Kinda like a spider digesting its prey. Or an old lady who’s forgotten her dentures. I personally prefer the first analogy.

Ok, so they’re crunchy. What about the other half of their grammatically abridged moniker? Are they cheesy? Yes. I?m really not a huge fan of classic Cheez-Its. To my tastes, standard Cheez-Its are overly salty and have a very flat cheese taste. Basically, the Goldfish’s less whimsical cousin. The Crunch’d keep the classic cheddar flavor while toning the salt level down a notch. There’s almost a nacho-esque hint to the flavor, but not overly so. If you’re a Cheez-Its fan, I think you’ll enjoy it. If you’re a cheesy snack junky like I am, I would also give these the thumbs up.

Verdict:

Cheez-It Crunch’d lives up to its name, delivering their classic cheesy flavor the loudest crunch I’ve ever experienced out of a snack. It’s a great snack for everywhere that isn’t your office cubicle where you sit right next the Director of your department.

**Note: I finally picked these up for $1.00 at my local Big Lots. SCORE! I’ll put the two dollars I saved towards my therapy sessions about unrealistic pricing expectations.
