Everyone loves 'em...even professional bass fishermen!

Cheez-It and Pringles pro angler Shinichi Fukae loves his snack crackers. He even wears Cheez-It branded gear when he's out on the water trying to snag a big catch during the FLW Tour.

There are more than 15 different Cheez-It varieties

And they are all delicious! We're partial to Hot & Spicy (made with Tobasco!) but we'll eat just about anything to cure our constant craving, be it Baby Swiss, White Cheddar, Parmesan & Garlic, Cheddar Jack, Pepper Jack, Italian Four Cheese, or even Colby. Bring them all on!

They make for great dinners in a pinch!

Like this Cheez-It Chicken recipe:

8 chicken tenders

1 cup sour cream

3 cups Cheez-Its, crushed

1/2 cup butter, melted

Crush the Cheez-Its by placing them in a large ziploc bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin. Preheat the oven to 375. Roll the chicken tenders in the sour cream and then in the Cheez-It crumbs. Place them in a baking dish. Drizzle with the melted butter. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.
