One thing that Cheez-It crackers have going for them is that they actually really, really taste like cheese. That’s not true of all cheese-flavored snacks, so we’re grateful that it’s the case with this one. That being said, Cheez-Its taste like processed American cheese with maybe a hint of cheddar, which is probably not what any cheese lover truly wants. If you can forget about that detail, then you’ll find that Cheez-Its are a standard snack that most people aren’t going to have a problem with. They’re cheesy, they’re salty, they have some crisp and crunch to them — what’s not to like?
The only thing to keep in mind with Cheez-Its is the fact that they get stale really, really easily. Like, open the box, and two days later, your Cheez-Its are going to close all their texture and become weirdly soft. They also seem to lose some of their flavor over a short period of time. That’s why Cheez-Its are the kind of snack we put out at a party. They get eaten all in one night, so you don’t have to worry about them going stale. And because most people will like them, you don’t have to open a bunch of different snacks.
Of course, Cheez-Its aren’t our favorite by a long shot, but they’re an average snack that will get the job done when you just want to keep your guests fed and happy — without spending a ton of cash.
