Cheez-It Extra Toasty

Taste test: Several weeks before we found this box in the cracker aisle, we had heard some buzz about how the folks behind Cheez-Its were planning to sell a "burnt" version of the popular square snack crackers, featuring just the rare overcooked ones that certain people crave in an ordinary box of Cheez-Its.

We opened the box and then the bag inside to find that the crackers looked a lot like standard Cheez-Its, except in color — the orange overall seemed a bit darker, and nearly every piece had some areas of its surface with a much darker shade.

We crunched in to find that they tasted like Cheez-Its, except even better. There was nice light crunch and lots of excellent cheese flavor. The feel was maybe a bit crisper and less crumbly than regular Cheez-Its. Nothing about the taste seemed burnt — it was just really good!

Smell test: Nice mild cheese smell.

From the package: “#1 requested Cheez-It® flavor!” ... “Made with 100% real cheese” ... “You asked. We toasted. After years of fan requests for an Extra Toasty Cheez-It®, the wait is finally over! Here it is — a box full of delicious extra toasty Cheez-It® crackers, and you made it happen!” ... “Extra Toasty. Extra Tasty.”
