Pros: Healthier choice. Bite sized. Inexpensive for the amount in a box.
Cons: Can be a little too salty for my taste.
My husbands all time favorite cheese cracker snack are Cheez - It Baked Snack Crackers by Kellogs. My two and a half year old son has started following in his fathers footsteps and enjoys them too. Even I will eat them occasionally but they are not my go to snack. You can usually find them at your local supermarket on sale for about $2.50. They are in the cracker and cookie aisles.
They are square in shape. They are orange in color. They have a rough texture. Your hands feel somewhat sandy while you are eating them. I know that I always have to wipe my hands when I am done. They are salty in taste. My husband likes to have his with seltzer. Usually he will eat a handful and then put them down. They are extremely filling. They make for a great snack. They come in a box with a fresh seal tight bag inside. When you are finished with them, you should wrap the bag tight and maybe even put a clip on the bag before putting it back in the box. If you dont close the seal, they will go stale.

If you visit this website you can see all of the different flavors cheez its come in. They also come in Twisterz, which my husband loves even more. They dont look like regular shaped cheez it's. They look a twisted rope full of cheese!

I highly recommend eating cheez its as a snack. It is a healthier alternative than regular potato chips and Doritos. You just have to make sure not to over do it, just like anything else. I feel good when I know my son is eating a cheez it instead of a more fattening snack like a regular cheese doodle. They will last a long time if you seal them completely to stay fresh.
Enjoy and happy snacking!
