REVIEW: Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ritz

For some reason, Nabisco knows how to push my fun buttons, and they’re doing it again with their new Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ritz.

I don’t know if they realize it, but if they push them too much, I may just cream all over myself, which now that I think about it, wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing because at least I’ll have something to spread on top of this new Ritz cracker.

This latest variation, along with their new Honey Butter, breaks the streak of savory Ritz Crackers and makes them a little sweet. Just like flavored Pringles and old school postage stamps, the flavor is only on one side, which, in the case of the Ritz Crackers, is on top. So if you’re going to enjoy these sans toppings, I recommend eating them with the top side facing towards your tongue.

They have taste that’s almost like graham crackers, which made them kind of addictive. Despite the noticeable crystals of brown sugar and cinnamon on it, the flavor was a bit light and disappeared quickly in my mouth, which encouraged me to add a little pizzazz to the cracker.

If you decide to go all Rachael Ray on your Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ritz Crackers, might I suggest topping it with some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup or using each cracker to scoop out Cool Whip straight from the container and into your mouth, instead of using a spoon, your hands or Teddy Grahams you’re trying to drown.

YUM-O!

Although if you’re going to be shoveling Cool Whip into your mouth with them, might I suggest letting the Cool Whip soften because these are as flaky as all the other Ritz Crackers and AT&T’s cell network in big cities. I also crushed a few crackers over some vanilla ice cream and thought they were a nice addition. So if you live near a self-serve fro-yo place, which you probably do if you live in a big metropolitan city with a flaky AT&T cell network, it would make a nice topping that you don’t need to pay for, just like the cream when I cream all over myself.

    Not often you see the words Rachel Ray and Brown Sugar in the same sentence.

  2. amanda says:

    I would still get the graham crackers because then I can make smores!

  3. Orchid64 says:

    I think that these might be useful in the Ritz “mock apple pie” thing which has always been so gross that I couldn’t even begin to imagine making it.

    And the “cream my pants” and “spread on cracker” takes you to a new “low”. Keep up the good work! ;-)

  4. Ayumiin says:

    Cream… For crackers… I don’t think i could eat these crackers now XD XD XD

  5. Ms. Spanks says:

    Brown Sugar…. why do you taste so good? Seriously lol, I am not a huge ritz fan but I just might be now!

  6. Yum Yucky says:

    Well I don’t have these, but I have Ritz regular. I’m gonna dip the crackers in melted buttery goodness and roll it in the sugar cinnamon. yee-haaa!

  7. Must try these. sounds awesome. (not you creaming yourself)

  8. Lil'C says:

    I’ve tried these and I didn’t think too much of them, they kind of left me dissapointed

  9. Marvo says:

    @Justin: It’s also not often you see the words Paula Deen and butter not in the same sentence.

    @amanda: Mmm…smores. Speaking of which, I just bought some Smores Goldfish crackers.

    @Orchid64: Oh, I believe I can go lower.

    @Ayumiin: I’m sorry I have ruined any chance of you eating these crackers. I would also like to apologize to Nabisco for ruining the chances of others eating these crackers.

    @Ms. Spanks: Meh…I don’t think these will change your mind about Ritz crackers.

    @Yum Yucky: That sounds pleasant and slightly bad for you.

    @The Frozen Food Master: Creaming oneself is fun for a brief moment, but cleaning up doesn’t make it worth it.

    @Lil’C: I hear you.

  10. Neil THE HAMMER says:

    Take these crackers and dip into the new philly cheesecake
    flavor of philly cream cheese

    THAT IS ALL

  11. Gigi says:

    I think quoting Rachael Ray should be considered a con…

  12. slurm says:

    These things are friggin’ awesome. I could eat half a sleeve without realizing it.

    i take it you haven’t seen the fudge covered Ritz yet. 7.5oz for $2.50, ouch.

  13. Marvo says:

    @Neil THE HAMMER: Or crush them over it and eat it like cereal.

    @Gigi: My FHM photo of her in a password protected folder on my computer says no it shouldn’t.

    @slurm: I haven’t seen the fudge covered Ritz yet.

  14. serial eater says:

    Whats with the “cream”theme? its kinda disgusting especially the creaming yourself part puts me off eating crackers forlife

  15. Chuck says:

    So, I suppose your own “personal cream” would make this a high protein snack, instead of a high carbohydrate one.

  16. Marvo says:

    @serial eater: You’re welcome???

    @Chuck: Good point! Also, possibly saltier.
