N Cracker AA Semifinal Round 3: Vote!

Submitted by on November 21, 2013 – 11:00 AM10 Comments


Augh! I love Breton; I love Town House; I just had Club Crackers with my red-pepper soup at lunch!

I've never tried those Triscuits, but they sound great — they must be; they're practically the only non-"original" cracker that got out of the first round — and Cheez-Its ARE great! What to do? What to predict?

I'll vote Club — knowing they have no chance against Cheez-Its. — Sarah D. Bunting


Oh, man! MAN! Those rosemary and olive oil Triscuits are seriously too good for me to keep in the house. BUT I haven't had Club or Town House in ages and suddenly I feel the need to eat all of them right this very minute. I'll be voting for Town House for nostalgia's sake, though I think Cheez-Its original probably has this in the waxed bag. –Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic

  • Kitty says:

    You guys, PLEASE don't let Cheez-Its win this round.
    I know I'm the only person on Earth that doesn't like the taste of those orange squares, but for the love of butter, let Town House or Club win!

  • annabel says:

    I am a Triscuits purist, but I may have to try this version, they sound delicious. I voted for it because I'm with Kitty, don't let cheez-its win.

  • Maria says:

    Aw, poor Club. My standard college hangover kit was Gatorade and Club crackers. But I never housed a box of them for dinner. Cheez-Its FO LYFE.

  • Still Another Kate says:

    Kitty, you are not alone. Cheez-Its are hork worthy. For the love of Town House, I would commit many a grievous sin.

  • jennie says:

    Oh, Kitty, you and I are Cheez-It hating soul mates. I do not understand how they are beating Club Crackers, which are made of butter and crack and happiness, when they are a clearly inferior cracker and are also from the "cheese food product" end of the food spectrum. May the god of cheese have mercy upon us all, Nation, if we permit Cheez-Its to prevail!

    ::Sandman shakes fist at ceiling, Khan-style::

    Damn you, N Cracker AA Semi-Final, damn you!

  • frogprof says:

    annabel: Try the Triscuit Rosemary and Olive Oil ones with a good white cheddar. You will never go back.

  • Nanc in Ashland says:

    If the only two things left on earth to eat were Cheez-Its and raisins/poo, I would be eating raisins/poo.

    Go triscuits!

  • Cora says:

    Speaking of cheese, I nominate a contender for the B.A.R.F. to investigate on RSoA: Goldfish Puffs Cheddar-Bacon flavor. Wash down with BBQ soda.

  • MizShrew says:

    I just had Cheez-Its for the first time in years and years, and… ick. They tasted more like the box they came in than any kind of cheese. Goldfish at least have the advantage of being cute. Granted that I am a Wisconsin cheese snob, so YMMV. But I'm sad that my childhood fave Town House is losing.
