Extra-Toasty Cheez-Its

The other day I was in Kroger browsing the chips and snacks when I noticed this new — at least to me — variation on the Cheez-It theme, one of perhaps twenty Cheez-It permutations.

You really have to focus and concentrate if all you want is the original: oh, it's in there, all right, surrounded by a sea of newbie offshoots.

I love dark and overcooked and nearly burnt foods: witness my rave review in January of CB's Robust Roast Peanuts.

I took a flyer on a box of the Extra-Toasty and they are superb, much darker than regular Cheez-Its.


At grocery stores everywhere.

A couple of years ago, visiting my brother-in-law, I got hooked on Cheez-Its as a quick cheat on breakfast on those days when I happened to be a little hungry. They are the kind of food I would normally eat only if I was working at some company and there was a vending machine.

As for the other comment about splits, if they are the pretzels I am thinking of, they are quite unusual and very good. (Very salty.) I also discovered them several years ago.

If you like toasty and you like pretzels, might I suggest Extra Dark Splits?
