Cheese Nips Recalled for Plastic Contamination and Cheez-It Fans Are Trolling
Fruitti Rings, Kat-Kots, Jays Chips, Capri-Sonnes, Bunch O' Cinnamon Squares, Creme Betweens... These are a few of my favorite knock-off snack foods (Creme Betweens are Oreos). And now I can add Cheese Nips to the list, as they've just been brought to my attention via recall. The cracker's parent company, Mondelēz, announced the recall is due to potential plastic contamination.
The recall statement said "the company became aware of this issue when yellow plastic pieces were noticed on the manufacturing equipment." The only Cheese Nips that could be contaminated are those in the 11 ounce boxes with a "best by" date of May 18, 19, or 20, 2020.
I know, I know. Who gives? Seemingly, nobody. Just look at Twitter:
Though some did seem to have an affinity towards Cheese Nips...
Rather eat cheese nips with plastic than the always stale cheese its— Ryan (@ryan932ljfldjf3) November 21, 2019
It’s interesting people prefer the sharp acidic aftertaste of cheez-its over the closer to cheese flavor of cheese nips— tyler. (@draugyr) November 21, 2019
I don't care what anyone says....Cheese Nips are better than Cheeze-Its— Teresa Grabs (@TeresaGrabs) November 21, 2019
Although I would sell my soul for a box of Cheese Tid Bits!
And one reasonable man's voice cut through the chaos:
I don’t eat Cheez-Its or Cheese Nips regularly but the bad opinions about Cheese Nips are rampant today.— Releñtlessly Pãul (@BravesStats) November 21, 2019
Some people prefer a less salty, more subtle flavor, and others want a cheese-ish snack but limit sodiumintake (also: half the price).
