TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Cheddies Cheddar Cheese Crackers
Forget the chips, forget the pretzels: Our favorite crunchy snack is Cheddies cheddar cheese crackers.
Cheddies were a serendipitous food find.
Last summer, we were at an enormous trade show—think the Disneyland of food, occupying an entire convention center.
After tasting samples of every type of food for four hours straight, we could not eat another bite. It was time to go home.
On the way out, someone handing out samples offered us a bag of Cheddies. We were food-bleary and too tired to refuse, so we dropped them into our tote bag and headed out.
The next day, as we sorted through the tote bag, we found the little bag of Cheddies and ate them. Delicious!

And after re-ordering and enjoying bag after bag, we concluded: Cheddies are more than delicious. They are addictive.
There are four varieties:
