Cheez-It Mozzarella

cheezitmoz.jpgYou expect a mozzarella cheese-flavored cracker to taste like it has some mozzarella cheese in it, right? And, you expect that there would be a decent amount of mozzarella cheese in it too, wouldnít you? So, I donít know what the folks at Cheez-It are thinking with new Cheez-It Mozzarella. Sure, they have a cheese flavor. But, itís not the flavor of mozzarella cheese. Itís just a generic, amorphous cheese flavor. It could be one of many cheese flavors. One look at the ingredient list on the side of the box explains why. Mozzarella cheese is listed there, but itís not the first type of cheese in the list. In fact, itís not even the second type of cheese on the list. Sadly, mozzarella cheese is third on the list, behind white cheddar and cheddar. This is why the crackers donít taste like mozzarella cheese. It also explains why the crackers deserve the lowest Phoood rating. Itís not because the crackers themselves arenít perfectly edible, but because as I ate them I had the feeling that I had been duped.

At this point in Cheez-It crackers it is surprising that they still are coming out with different cheese flavors. The flavor os mozzarella is a smooth creamy flavor without any sharp aspects. This flavor in cheese it crackers would be unflavorful without the addition of other cheeses. Mixing the taste with cheddar would give the consumers the typical Cheez-It flavor mixed with someone else jazzy. As i think it should say mozzarella with a splash of cheddar, i am not at all surprised that these do not taste as expected. Neither should you.

Dammit, I agree with you. These just taste like the white cheddar ones. Mozzarella cheese does have a flavor, and it should be forward. Luckily, they belong to someone else... or they did. Ha.

They are good because they are Cheez it, they taste like the white cheddar crackers but not as strong. But they are good. You can taste the mozzarella cheese flavor after you swallow them and taste the flavor later. Love theeeeeeemmmm, Dont Change a Thing
