Here we have mozzarella flavored Cheez-Its. I love mozzarella cheese. I love string cheese. I could eat entire blocks of mozzarella cheese. Sometimes I will even grab and fist full of the pre-shredded stuff, forgetting that its covered in flour and tastes terrible, disappointment ensues.
That being said I was very excited to see these on the shelf. Cheez-its are always amazing. I assumed flavoring them like mozzarella would be equally amazing, if not more so.
And then I ate them. I tried so hard to detect some faint flavor of mozzarella. I could not. I had some more, and still nothing. I even thought, not only do these barely taste like mozzarella, they taste like regular cheese its.
Desperately searching for mozzarella flavor, I took a gander at the ingredients list.
White cheddar cheese and cheddar cheese are higher on the ingredient list than mozzarella.
So now the mystery has been solved.
Cheez-Its are great and really so are these, just don't expect them to taste like mozzarella.
