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.
