Carefully monitoring the amount of cheese you spread on each cracker to ensure you had enough for each cracker was one of the great challenges of childhood (and one I always failed at). Apparently, these days, it’s hard (impossible?) to find Handi-Snacks with the little red spreader. Nabisco has the product on their website, but said on Twitter in February 2019 that “the red sticks were removed in order to be more eco-friendly.” I’m not sure how you’re expected to spread on the cheese without the little red stick, but we are intelligent adults, right??
The cheese may not be the fancy stuff you've developed a taste for in adulthood, but there's something still very much pleasant and intriguing about the wonders of spreadable yellow cheese dip.
