Are hybrid processed foods becoming all the rage? They squeezed the cracker inside the pretzel. And then they squashed it flat.
Ritz Munchables Pretzel Crisps confuse the flavor sensors in my brain and cause mindless munching to occur even though I’m not impressed. It’s two age-old foods smashed together into one. I could stuff my mouth with a pretzel and cracker and get the same result. But I’d have to stuff more pretzels because the cracker doesn’t taste that strong.
It’s thin and light (about one inch wide). It’s got a nice crispy crunch with buttery flavor. Yet I don’t care to eat anymore because I have better ways to blow 140 calories. But the Greedy Family loves them.
Get it in Buttery Flavor or Cheesy Sour Cream & Onion.

REACTIONS FROM THE TASTE TEST CREW
Health-hater Husband: Nice and crisp. I can taste the buttery cracker part. Cool.
Greedy Kid #1: I think the idea is stupid. Oh wait. I actually like it. Not salty. Nice and buttery, yet not overpowering. I mostly taste the pretzel.
Greedy Kid #2: (He’s too busy puking. No tasting for him today.)
Greedy Kid #3: I like it. Because I just do.
YUM UP! to: Spending 140 calories on Peanut M&M’s instead of pretzel-crackers.
YUCK DOWN to: Confused flavor sensors.
