Ritz Crackerfuls and a $100 Visa Gift Card!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Ritz Crackerfuls

When I got an email from BlogHer asking about interest in doing a review for Ritz Crackers, I was all, “CRACKERS??? Where?!”

And then 2 days ago the product arrived in my mailbox… two boxes of the BRAND NEW crackers from Ritz —> Ritz Crackerfuls. Visit the official site for more information!

Why CrackerFULS”… I imagine it is because there is cheese filling between those crackers! *nomnomnom*
Crackerfuls Four Cheese

Crackerfuls Cheddar

Each box comes with 6 packages of what I call yummy cracker “sandwiches”. This what one of those individual packages look like:
empty package

Yes, it’s empty *licks lip*…

This snack cracker still has that yummy buttery goodness of the traditional Ritz cracker, but in these, each serving has 5 grams of whole grain. And just look how big they are! Don’t forget, there is a tasty cheese spread inside!
crackah!

This is not your standard school lunch cheesy cracker snack! And look at those cute scalloped edges!

I though it’d be fun to try them in a display:

Crackerfuls 1

Though I originally had 12 cracker packages to work with…

Crackerfuls 2
I only had 5 after my husband had a late night snack, my 4 year old had her morning snack…
*nomnomnom*
and I did my own taste-testing…
Cheesy spread
Look in there, a nice helping of cheese spread in between the crispy crunch of those Ritz crackers!

My husband came up to me as I started writing this, and he said, “You can feel free to tell them I liked ‘em.” So I’m passing that on. Husbands like fancy crackers too!

Being a busy woman and mom I am always looking for something quick. I will often grab a sleeve of Ritz or graham crackers to munch on in the car as we are running to yet another activity. I like these crackers because they come in a “single dose application”, if you will *wink*. This helps me with my portion control, and it’s nice to have the cheese filling sandwiched in. It is MUCH more appetizing and satisfying that a plain old cracker. I especially liked the tangier taste of the four cheese blend. My four-year-old snuck a couple off my plate after I took a few pictures. Seems she likes the crackers too. Guess I’m going to need to find a hiding spot if I’m not willing to share!

I know some might be weary of the storable cheese and it’s flavor. I found it to be pretty darn good. It doesn’t replace freshly sliced cheese, but I rarely have time to grab crackers and slice my own cheese as I am yelling at the kids to put on their shoes and grab their jackets. I like the snack’s transportability and the cheese adds a good deal of flavor that makes ya feel like you had something more than a “filler”. It’s a terrific option for people on the go. Oh, and they would help out in a pinch when surprise guests pop in.

How about you? Do you have a spot (or two) during the day where you need a quick snack option? What are you doing during those times?
