Cheez-It Italian Four Cheese

cheez-it4cheese.jpgI like to read the list of ingredients on food that I eat so that I have an idea of what’s in it and to practice pronouncing words like phenylalanine and disodium guanylate. I read the ingredients list on a box of new Cheez-It Italian Four Cheese crackers that I bought recently and was surprised to find not four, but six types of cheeses listed: white cheddar, Monterey Jack, romano, parmesan, mozzarella, and Asiago. I guess “Italian Six Cheese” just wasn’t as catchy. In regard to the crackers, they are very tasty, with a cheese flavor that reminds me of, well, six different cheeses combined together. They are one of the better tasting types of Cheez-It, but they are not without a few small complaints. They’re very close to being too salty for my taste and are also covered with a powdery substance, which I assume is cheese powder. This means that your fingers get covered with the stuff as you eat the Cheez-Its, which I don’t like. Inevitably, the powder ends up not only on my fingers but also on my shirt, the couch, and the cat. Fortunately, there is a solution for this. Next time, I’ll just pour the crackers directly from the box into my mouth and bypass my fingers altogether.

I like the four cheese almost as much as the white cheddar cheez-it it reminded me of eating pizza without all the calories.they are my new favorites, no more potatoe chips for me.

I like your solution for eliminating cheese powder on your fingers. I have a few suggestions of my own.
