Facebook and Cheese Crackers

Susan Solo Photography is now on Facebook! We have our own shiny new page out there. I’m currently in the process of getting photos uploaded from past weddings and portrait sessions, so the page is slowly starting to buzz with activity. Stop by and check it out, and if you’re a fan of what we do, please feel free to become a fan on the Facebook page – it makes us feel super warm and fuzzy inside. 🙂

And as a completely random bit of fun, Chris and I were grocery shopping last weekend and were suddenly curious about the difference between Cheese Nips and Cheese-Its, and we decided to do a taste test comparison. I mean, how can they have two crackers on the market that look exactly the same? Yes, things are that exciting around here on Sundays!

Neither of us eat either brand of cheese crackers on a regular basis, so we feel that our test was unbiased and fair. We determined that the Cheese Nips seem to have more cheese flavor, and are lighter in texture. They’re 2 grams of fat less per serving, but have considerably more sodium than Cheese-Its. The conclusive results: we probably won’t buy either cracker again because Chris doesn’t really eat crackers, and I am more of a Goldfish kind of girl. Do you have a preference? Weigh-in on the cheese cracker debate!

As a side note, sometimes I ask Chris about things that I am about to post on my blog. I said, “Is the cracker thing stupid or funny?” and he declared it was funny, so blame him if this is just too far out there for you! Don’t worry, I have Coelle and Corey’s engagement photos coming up this weekend, so we will return to your regularly scheduled photo blog shortly.

  • Brianna Phelan - I can actually SEE the salt on the right hand ones – yikes. What a fun post haha. I love goldfish 🙂ReplyCancel

  • amie - I love Cheez-its, but I have to admit I’ve never tried the Nips. Now I’m curious!ReplyCancel

  • Susan - We’ve always been a cheez-it family and I feel like the cheese nips are like fake cheez-its! If you get them again, get the reduced fat cheez-its…they’re not as greasy and are crispier.ReplyCancel

  • Eileen Broderick - This is totally random and off the wall. So of course it is something I have thought about and have an opinion on! I feel rather strongly that Cheez-Its are better. But maybe I am biased? My Mom only bought Cheese Nips growing up. And I think she served them to us stale all the time. And I was too young to know better or to defend myself. So perhaps that is at the root of my feelings. But when I got older and finally tasted Cheez-Its it was like the veil was lifted. A proper square cheese cracker, at last.

    Is it ironic that after all of that I still have to admit that I much prefer a Goldfish to either of them?! (Pizza are my favorite, but I’ll eat ’em all. Except the pretzel ones.) Thanks for making my day, susan. Sorry if I scared off your other readers with this ridiculous rant.ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth and Frank Myers - We are a Canon /Mac / RAW / Lightroom / Cheez-its family. This is the next great “vs.” pairing in the photography world!!!ReplyCancel

  • Angel at Heart - Wow!!! As I sat eating my “cheese Nips” my son comes and sit next to me and says “why are you eating those bootleg crackers,” I eat Cheesz-It’s! I say they are by Nabisco they’re not bootleg. So he proceeds to say “cheez-It’s are better. And so I googled it and this came up. It’s funny that this even came up as a topic of conversation. In all reality I would snack on either brand without even giving it a second thought. ReplyCancel

    • Susan - Haha! This topic does crack me up. It’s definitely a thing. Enjoy your preferred crackers! (And yes, I’d be perfectly happy to have a box of either one right now.)
