Ritz Crackers Bacon

Ritz Crackers Bacon

Taste: I love Ritz Crackers. They are the best of all crackers. No other cracker even comes close. If you had asked me yesterday how to improve Ritz Crackers, I would have come up blank. I also do believe that everything is better with bacon. Yet even after I became aware that these existed, it did not shake my belief in plain Ritz Crackers. But still, when I saw this box, it took no time flat to decide to buy it. Not because I suddenly realized that bacon might be the way to improve Ritz Crackers. But just because.

The crackers pictured on the box had some darkish bits of something on their surfaces (presumably the artificial bacon), but there was way less of that on the actual crackers. I crunched in to find a pretty good taste, not really like bacon, but still smoky and tasty. It was a good flavor. However, there was enough of that simulated bacon-like flavor that the buttery taste that makes Ritz so good (see my tribute above!) was not really in evidence. So they replaced a truly great cracker with a perfectly good flavored one. And not even one that really tasted like bacon. I would not take that trade any day. We'll stick with the original Ritz.

Aroma: Smells like a smoked sausage, but not really like bacon.
