Are you ready to settle down this month and watch some amazing basketball?  I know in my house, we are definitely psyched for the games and we are stocked up with lots of snacks to munch on while we are cheering on our favorite teams!  We are loving these Cheez-It Grooves !  They are a cheesy cracker with the crunch of a chip and make a great accompaniment to any dip!

Having two teenage boys in the house, I can never have too many snacks on hand.  My youngest loved this dip with the Cheez-It Grooves!  My older son is all about "heat" so his snack of choice is the Cheez-It CRUNCH'D Hot and Spicy!  Both snacks are made with 100% real cheese.

Me?  I loved the Sharp White Cheddar Cheez-It Grooves dunked into this dip!  Such a great flavor combination!  I think this dip is a "Slam Dunk" and deserves a solid three points for deliciousness!

You can find Cheez-Its and everything you need to make this dip at your local Walmart.  The Cheez-its are easy to spot in the cracker aisle.


Loaded Ranch Dip comes together easily in a few simple steps and will be a real crowd pleaser at your game day viewing party or get-together!

  2. I've made this without the chives and hot sauce and think those would kick it up a notch! So funny you featured the new Cheez-its today b/c I just bought a bag of the puffy Crunch'd ones for Joshua this morning!

    1. Both varieties of the Cheez-ts are great! I was just thinking along the lines of a loaded baked potato when I put this one together, and I usually put hot sauce on my baked potatoes! haha
