This is what the edge on Ritz crackers are really for
It may look nice, but it's there for another reason...
Now I don't follow TikTok trends, but a new viral video posted by theritzcrackersofficial gives us the answer to the age old question you've never considered. Why are Ritz crackers shaped the way they are?
Food companies have been busy creating accounts to showcase 'lifehacks' with their food products. For the Ritz cracker, you can see for yourself in the video that the ridges on the edge of the saltine crackers are supposed to be for cutting through cheese slices – like a tiny pizza cutter for cheese.
Many TikTok users were blown away by the video, but many also questioned its credibility. Ritz therefore clarified after posting the video that this was of course not the original intention of the edges - so, it's back to square one, and we may never know why the edges of Ritz crackers are scalloped.
This however hasn't stopped the video causing considerable speculation among cracker fans, which now sits at a whopping 420,000 likes and 2.4 million views after just 5 days.
Let me know if you know the answer to why Ritz crackers are shaped the way they are. I'd love to know.
