For ages Cheez-It was a product of Sunshine Bakery and Cheez-It crackers were a predictable and reliable commodity. Once bought by the Kellog conglomeration, the once venerable Cheez-It fell victim to the infinite permutation disease for which Oreo cookies has been a poster child. One of the variants is Extra Cheesy. I had to try this, imagining the inside of the adorable square crackers now being somehow soft and dense. Hopefully packed with some form of non-perishable junk-food cheddar. Instead, all Extra Cheesy turned out to be was regular Cheez-Its with the same finger-caking cheese dust that you find on Cheetos. Rather than making the Cheez-Its more cheesy, or even tasting better in any way whatsoever, the result was a counterproductive clash of flavors. The wonderful taste of a basic Cheez-It and the unmistakable dusty, chalky, and twangy taste of Cheetos cheese dust cohabitating in strife. It would have been better to simply get a big bowl and mix a box of Cheez-Its and bag of Cheetos together. Instead, the Cheez-It flavor was done violence by the invading Cheeto dust that simply made my taste buds wonder where the crunchy bodies of the Cheetos had disappeared to.
