Poll: Cheez-It or Cheese Nips? (102 votes)

Cheese Nips - I have good taste. 16%
Cheez-It - I am stupid. 84%

Only take into consideration the basic flavors. White Cheddar is in a whole 'nother league.

Cheez-it. Because I have good taste. You must have gotten those mixed up.

#2 Edited by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

Cheez-its. They have better crunch and are more crisp.

Cheese nips always feel chalky and stale.

While I go for a box of Hot and Spicy Cheez-its on occasion, my love will always be with the original toasted golden goodness of the Cheese Nips.

Nips are gross.

Cheez-Its for life.

Where is the "I'd rather have something less toxic" option?

@gaminghooligan: You're awesome. All these other people are crazy.

Also the foil bag thats in the box that the cheese-nips are actually in always opens wrong. it rips down the side so a bunch fall out of the box. While the cheez-it plastic bag opens flawlessly everytime.

ITS THE WHOLE PACKAGE. better taste, more crisp and fresh plus better packaging.

It is INSANE to me that someone could like cheese-nips more.

The salted cheesiness of Cheez-its just can't be beat in the cheesy baked cracker arena. They even spell "cheese" wrong on purpose, and that's pretty cool.

Cheez-It, motherfucker.

Cheez-its are the best cheesy snack cracker.

Cheese Nips are for poor people and children. I want a cheese-flavored cracker with class, not ass.

I guess if we're being honest, I'd rather have something more toxic. Fugu crackers, ahoy!

Cheez-it 4 lyfe

Cheez-its are fantastic. Cheese nips are lame.

#16 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (6256 posts) -

Cheez-its are my favorite cheese based snack.

Cheese Nips have this gross chemical aftertaste. No thanks.

I like both. I tend to eat one for a while, then switch to the other when I get sick of the first one. I'm on a cheese nips kick right now.

#20 Posted by Wraith1 (602 posts) -

cheez-it's are the only choice

#21 Posted by Slax (1006 posts) -

Cheez-its are actually good. Cheese nips taste nasty. I voted accordingly.

#22 Posted by bushpusherr (938 posts) -

Cheez-its; accept no substitutes.

Cheese Nips are fucking terrible.

#26 Posted by billmcneal (411 posts) -

for the original flavors, I do like Cheese Nips better. But any non-original Cheez-It I like a lot

#27 Posted by berniesbc (65 posts) -

Cheese Nips get a bad rap. I think they're a superior product.

#28 Posted by ShaggE (7079 posts) -

Cheez-Its. I tried Nips once and I simply couldn't stomach them. They tasted awful and left me nauseated. (White cheddar Cheez-Its do the same thing to me... blech)

#29 Posted by YI_Orange (1210 posts) -

Anyone who voted Cheese Nips is a monster.

Define "toxic" in terms less vague than "chemicals" and you win a prize.

#35 Edited by Ghost_Cat (1510 posts) -

The brain should be firing off cautious signals when considering to eat something that contains the word "nip."

#36 Edited by BBAlpert (1799 posts) -

I once saw a cheese-flavored cracker snack called "Nip Chee." I assume it was some kind of store brand Cheese Nip thing, but I could be wrong about that.

#37 Edited by ryvythed (30 posts) -

Cheese Nips are not the same as Cheez-Its! Why have a list if you're not going to follow it!

Nah, Nip Chee is the cheese variety of Toast Chee (those cheese crackers with peanut butter sandwiched in between).

Cheese Nips are for losers and this poll has spoken.

But seriously what the hell, Cheese Nips taste like someone shit on a cracker, Cheez-Its taste it was touched by the hand of God.

#40 Posted by Winternet (8234 posts) -

No cheese.

You're right in that the original is the best. Sadly for you, but Nips are not the original. It wasn't even close:
Cheez-It introduced 1921
Cheese Nips introduced 1955

I'm comforted that the majority of Giantbomb is on the right side of history with this.

#43 Posted by flashx_454 (59 posts) -

cheese nips all the way cause they have a better cheese taste

I have been known to destroy a box of cheez-its though

Cheddar Jack Cheez-Its. Ahyup.

#46 Posted by gaminghooligan (1664 posts) -

@lebkin: I actually meant original as in: just cheese cracker no fixin's, but TIL CHeez-Its came first so yay random knowledge!

As a Canadian, I only really had access to Cheese Nips for most of my life.

When I moved down to the US for school, I tried Cheez-Its for the first time. I will never go back.

Cheese Nips taste terrible - greasy and chalky at the same time, also not nearly as satisfying of a crunch as their brethren. Cheez-its all the way.
