Taste Test: Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ritz Crackers

With holiday parties looming on the horizon, I've had killer apps and hors d'oeuvres in the back of my mind. Since no party is complete without a meat, cheese, and crackers platter, it's only appropriate that Nabisco has come out with a new variety of Ritz cracker, Brown Sugar Cinnamon, that's sure to be popular come Christmastime. Ritz crackers were an after-school pastime for me growing up, so I couldn't wait to try the new flavor. Did it live up to its highly-regarded name? Find out when you read more.

If the original Ritz cracker and a cinnamon graham cracker had a baby, it would be the Brown Sugar Cinnamon cracker. Like a graham, these crackers are visibly sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon on one side only, and possess the same delicate, airy texture of a conventional Ritz round. While these crackers aren't as sweet or cinnamon-y, they still have a distinct cinnamon flavor.

If you're not a fan of the spice, you probably won't like these crackers, either. What they're missing is the salty, buttery, rich quality that the Ritz is known for — in my opinion, the best part of a Ritz cracker. In the end, this newfangled snack isn't decisive enough for me. I wished it took more of a sweet-salty-spicy stand, or simply stood alone as a plain Ritz cracker; that would make the flavor more worthwhile.

It could, however, be a quick way to add flair to a cheese plate. One could also get creative in topping it with a sweet apple filling, crumbling it on top of it a pear crisp, or crushing it to fashion a super-light graham cracker-type crust. Have you ever tried these crackers? What did you think of them?
