NapaJapan order reviews, we've got the first example of my cheese-based snacks. I loved Ritz Bits as a kid growing up in the USA, they were a snack time staple. Best of all, I was the only person in my family who loved them, so I had them all to myself. My personal favorite was the classic cheese. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure you can't find the Ritz sandwiches here in the UK, and there is no artificial cheese spread that has the same consistency as whatever the hell is in Ritz Bits...
These are definitely better eaten cleaved apart, and I think it would be an amazing snack if I could extract the peppery, mildly cheesy filling and put it into a classic Ritz...but as it stands, that cracker just isn't to my taste. I think a lot of it has to do with memory and nostalgia, the fact that it is a Ritz cracker sandwich, but not as I knew it, makes me dislike it rather than just think 'Huh, nice cracker!' I think if it was just a matter of a different filling, it wouldn't be an issue at all--probably because there are already lots of varieties of filling for Ritz, anyway.
Taking my emotional response out of it, the nutmeg actually goes kind of nicely with the cheese, reminds me a lot of cheese balls
at parties, probably because of the subtle sweetness from the toasted nuts.
When I was describing them to my husband he just looked more and more
grossed out. Basically, it is a ball composed of real cheeses, fake
cheeses, cream cheeses, rolled in nuts and served with crackers. To me
it is a classic trashy American food, but it seems like it hasn't
made the same jump that stuff like cheeseburgers, casseroles, pulled
pork and chili cheese fries has.
Funny enough, the cracker most often paired with cheese balls? Ritz.
