Cheez-It is adding two brand-new crackers to its lineup for snack fans who want even more crunch.

Described in a press release as “absurdly amped up,” new Cheez-It Extra Crunchy Baked Snack Crackers are hitting store shelves in two flavors: Cheez-It Extra Crunchy Bold Cheddar and Cheez-It Snap’d Extra Crunchy Sharp White Cheddar.

To get the extra-satisfying crunch that some fans love to hear, the crackers are baked with a “crispy texture” that Cheez-It says provides a more intense crunch. They are then seasoned with even more cheese flavor.

Cheez-It sent me the original and Extra Crunchy crackers so I could put them to the crunch test. I am happy to report that both flavors definitely have more crunch than the originals. The Cheez-It Extra Crunchy Bold Cheddar is the crunchiest of all.

While the Cheez-It Snap’d Extra Crunchy Sharp White Cheddar felt similar in thickness and texture to the original Snap’d Cheez-It, the Cheez-It Extra Crunchy Bold Cheddar is actually quite a bit thicker than an Original Cheez-It cracker. It’s fairly easy to tell the difference before even taking a bite.

The original crackers are obviously also crunchy, so there isn’t a huge change in crunch level. But it’s enough to be noticeable and should appease crunchy snack fans.
