I had a rant, but that's boring and I've been distracted by this website -- that I check in on now and again, because I do love comparing food, even when it's crap food. While I like to try new things, I also like to minimize mental effort while shopping -- it's just easier when I have a hiearchy of choice for a given product. Like for canned tomatoes, first choice is Muir Glen, second is Redpack, third is Pomi. When I'm someplace where they don't have those, I stress out -- which is better, Hunt or Del Monte? I actually have a can of each at home so that when I have a few minutes, I can resolve the question.

Several years ago, I bought a box of Cheez-Its and a box of Cheese Nips because on the odd occasions (always involving travel and the need for airplane or car snacks) when I went to buy them, I could never remember which one I liked. All I remembered was that I DIDN'T like one of them. (For the record, Cheese Nips wins)

So I was pleased to find this website -- not so much for the information contained (although it's fun to read) but just to be joyful that there's someone else out there in the universe who burns more than just a few brain cells over this. The most recent post departs from the general theme of the website and it's so wonderful/awful that THIS is a good time to share it.

Enjoy the Reindeer Pop and the pictures it's gonna make in your head, but go through past entries as well -- I'll bet you find one of your old favorites!

For my money, Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies are better than both. No preservatives! Made with organic wheat! But really they just taste better... And who doesn't like to behead bunnies for an afternoon snack anyway. Oh? What? Must just be me...

But given that Annie's are rarely, if ever, available in airports or Jersey Turnpike rest stops, I just may have to repeat your Cheez-It/Cheese Nip experiment for myself.

Ugh. You can have the Cheese Nips. I don't like them. I'll take Cheez-its any day. :D
