Taste test: These cheese crackers were shaped maybe kind of remotely like rocket ships (or maybe cartoon rocket ships).
The shape was really quite obscure, so without seeing the box, I doubt I would have ever guessed "rocket" from just seeing the shapes. I don't think I would have guessed anything else either, as it was just a weird, weird shape. But basically, they were the Trader Joe's version of Cheez-Its. Their surfaces felt very smooth on the fingertips, as there were no extra bumps or indentations, nor any bits of salt on the surfaces. They had a soft crunch and nice mild cheese taste, less cheesy than Cheez-Its but still very good. Our panel of beer-drinking snackers liked them a lot; people sang the praises of these strange crackers and ate handful after handful.
