Are you a Nip or an It?

I'm dying to know where your cheese cracker loyalties lie. . .
Choice A
Choice B

If you answered "Choice B," you answered incorrectly and will be punished.

j/k :) Okay, so we are all entitled to our own cheese cracker preference, but c'mon, even the Cheese Nips box is cuter! And the cheesy goodness inside can't be beat! I am personally a Nip lover and I'm proud of it.

If you are wondering why the heck I am posting about this today, the fact is, Wal-Mart Supercenter(the upscale grocery store I shop at, don't be jealous) is no longer selling Cheese Nips. I've noticed the past couple of months that they aren't on the shelves-at least not at any of the Wallyworlds in my neck of the woods. Its very disappointing. I've actually purchased a couple of Cheez Its boxes and tried to grin and bear it as I eat, but the smile isn't genuine. In reality, I'm dying inside. Cheez Its just don't compare. You can try to persuade me otherwise, but these taste buds don't lie.

In other horrifying food news, my Wal-Mart is also temporarily not selling On The Border Tortilla Chips. Wal-Mart, are we going to have to break up? I will not eat that Tostitos crap. I just won't!

Do I have food issues? :)

I was kind of afraid to join in on you guy's conversation. Yikes! :) As for the the cracker, I'm a Nip! Its just taste like dirty socks to me (not that I've eaten a dirty sock, but you know what I mean).

Definitely Cheese Nips, although I do like the white cheddar flavor too,

hoLLy said...

joey has raised an interesting question though, why the word "nip"? "it" is a better word. ok, i'll give them that i guess.

joey(and many of you i'm sure) grew up eating its. i grew up eating nips. i think its a matter of what you ate as a kid.

but i still think nips are better! :) sorry joejoe.

Honestly, I don't have a preference and never really noticed there were two different brands of the EXACT SAME cracker. Haha...but I do appreciate your passion. I'm very particular about certain food items, too.

WHAT?! No On the Border salsa!!! Now this IS serious.

Marie said...

I'm a glutton. I Love both and I really miss them over here! They don't have them here at all! You used to be able to get Goldfish, the cheese ones, but I haven't even been able to find them lately!

Chrystina said...

Sounds like it is time to have a meeting with the manager! Tell him if his store can't provide you the comforts you seek your dollar bills are going to float to another's pocket.
And we are dying to know.... so just what was Joey's punishment later?! HA!

I guess I will be punished because I like the cheeze it crackers. :)

Suzie said...

I am just not a cheese cracker fan. See. More reason to love me. More for you.
But I did try the cracked pepper flavored popcorn you suggested. oh. My. More reasons to love the popcorn.
:)

hoLLy said...

sarah(aka duchess), you have to buy one of each box and taste them. they taste VERY different! cheez its are more bitter, but some people(like my husband) like that better. cheese nips have more of a sweet cheddar flavor, which is what i dig. and its the OTB chips that walmart isn't carrying, not the salsa(thank goodness for that at least!)

and suzie, glad you tried the pepper popcorn and liked it! i always worry when i recommend something that the person i recommended it to will totally hate it. and then hate me. :)

and chrystina, i can't give you the details of the punishment here on the web. call me later:) j/k!!!

devri said...

I can't recall if I ever knew there was one or the other, I will make sure I know from now on!!

OUr friendship relys on it!

I like the white cheddar ITS but to be fair I must say that I don't really eat either one very often. I prolly haven't had one in a year or possibly more.

mamapickle said...

ok. You all are wrong. It is Better Cheddar all the way when it comes to cheese crackers. They CAN NOT be beat! 1st and most importantly they are round and that means no spikey corners to stab your mouth with (don't even try to say that has never happened to you). 2nd The cheese flavor is for real, 'nough said.

hoLLy said...

ohhhhhhhh....you got us all nicole:) i've never had better cheddar, but from the name i guess it really is better?! :) i wasn't trying to say cheese nips beat them all, but that it beats the cheez its. i'll have to give better cheddar a whirl. thanks for the heads up and for setting us all straight!)

RD said...

Wait just a minute, nibbling at the corners to make the Nips round is part of the allure of the National Biscuit Company's favorite snack. An American Classic Snack to be sure.

Anayansi said...

i am such a cheese nips person that it is ridiculous! so i totally understand you. you should complain! i am going to check my walmart next time i am there. thanks for the heads up. :)

Patty said...

I vote for Cheese Nips!!!

Cindy Ben said...

Holly you are hillarious! I'm going to just need to buy both kinds and decide for sure...you are very persuasive!

billy said...

(There is a sentence I never thought I would type...)

Amber said...

Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm glad we're on the same page about Cheese Nips. The other brand that shall not be named is just too salty.
