This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Ritz.
Ever since I started working, I have always worked in an office and am used to a regular schedule, taking lunch breaks etc... but I recently started a new job where I don't go into an office. I spend most of my time traveling and visiting clients but when I'm at home, I work from home. This is a big change for me as when I'm at home, my schedule is quite varied as I can go from having conference calls to running to the post office and then stopping by the grocery store to pick up ingredients for dinner. I often mix up personal and business when I'm at home but then I get so caught up on everything that I'm doing that I can forget to do normal things like take breaks and eat. My husband who works from home as well, is much better than me at keeping track of those things so he will often come check on me and make sure that I actually take breaks from all the millions of things that I'm doing. We often take our dogs on walks to break up the day and it's so nice to go out and get some fresh air after I've been buried in spreadsheets all morning. During these breaks is also when I try to get something small to eat as I don't often eat lunch, I usually just try to eat something that will satisfy me until dinner. When BlogHer asked me to review Ritz Crackerfuls, it seemed like the perfect fit for me as it sounded exactly what I like to snack on during the day.
I got to try the Classic Cheddar and the Cheddar Cheese and Bacon. To be quite honest, I didn't have high hopes for the bacon one as I thought, "bacon in a cracker?" I just didn't know what to make of it. I tried the Class Cheddar and thought it was quite good! My husband however, was intrigued with the bacon flavor so he tried that one and then proclaimed that I better do my review right now or else he was going to eat the entire box. LOL! So I trusted him and tried it and it indeed was delicious! The flavor is just a hint of bacon and cheese and the crackers are nice and crispy, just what I like. These crackers don't seem like much, but they really do keep me satisfied throughout the day. It's great that the crackers are made of 6 grams of whole grains and real cheese, which makes me feel good about what I'm eating. The other thing that's great about these is that they are individually wrapped so I just keep one stashed in my purse and when I get hungry I don't have to worry about not having anything to eat.
