I just want to know if they are as good as Eco planet were.

I found them at Whole Foods (near Boston) and I liked them better than I remember Cheez-its being; I remember Cheez-its as really oily to the touch, but the EB ones didn't have that. I thought the taste was spot-on but when I had omnis try them they said they weren't quite the same. (they still liked them, though)

Veganchubosaurus volunteers at Sidecar and, if I recall correctly, said they should have the crackers in August (or maybe it wasn't until September.) We might need to tweet or facebook Earth Balancs and ask them why Sidecar seems to get the shaft when other vegan groceries are getting this stuff ahead of WF.

i found them last in may at whole foods in sac...could not find them in the bay. they are so freaking good - better the the eco planet ones. they have a better texture.


i got a few + cinnamon chunky apple sauce/slices and mixed all of it up into some coconut milk ice cream...like apple pie a-la mode!

So the reason no one can find them at Whole Foods is that they were recalled for having bleached flour, which is one of those things that's on our list of unacceptable ingredients. I haven't heard whether or not they're changing the recipe so WF can carry them, but I really hope they do! I missed out on the first shipment to our store, and I could really tear through a box of cheez-its in no time back in the day.

bleached flour!? I had them and definitely thought they were excellent. Why is bleached flour unacceptable?

I posted on Earth Balance's Facebook and they responded saying they just sent a big shipment out and to check with individual Whole Foods grocery managers on timing. So I wonder if they solved the bleach problem?

I bought these at Fairway on the UWS a couple times in May/June. Now they are out and I keep looking every time I go. I guess they've been out at least two weeks. WHY? They are so good. My only complaint is that there are not enough in the box.

I found ONE BOX at my Whole Foods like two months ago. Just one box, sitting by itself. I bought them, ate them, loved them so hard, and now I cry every time I go to WF because I have NEVER seen them again. There's not even a spot for them. No luck at the co-ops around here either. It's so frustrating!

I read on a stranger's Instagram that they were pulled off shelves shortly after launch in NYC. Whaaaaaaaa? I have yet to see them anywhere besides Food Fight! in Portland, and that was a couple of months ago.

I haven't had those in years, but from what I remember, no. That said, the EB ones aren't bad. I've never eaten cheezits (maybe once) so I can't compare to that.

i was at the brooklyn whole foods last night, and there was a tag and a space for them with a little blue "New!" label. either that space has been empty since the crackers were pulled and they're just leaving the label there to torment us, or they're planning on restocking in the hopefully nearish future. i didn't know about the flour issues last night, so i walked through that aisle about a hundred times to see whether they'd been restocked.

We found them at a non-Whole Foods HFS! They are so good. I actually like them somewhat more than the Eco Planet ones which I forking loved.

you did? damn. i was just talking to people at Fairway about getting some of the EB products because I've been to two recently and neither had any earth balance products besides the regular margarine. The customer service people were really annoying and had no idea what i was talking about and kept trying to call someone else on the phone to come help me. eventually i left them with a list of products and i tweeted at them with no response.

I picked up a box at Food Fight! in Portland yesterday when I stopped in with a friend. They're definitely pricey at $4+ a box. I never really snack on crackers, so I can't see how these will make much of an appearance in my life. I definitely seemed to enjoy them more when I first tried them a couple of months ago, nostalgia-factor, and all that. I did eat a TON of cheeze its and whatnot back in my day (like, a ton ton ton, and often for lunch out a vending machine because I thought sandwiches and basically everything else in my high school cafeteria was gross).
Basically, the color and shape is spot on, as are the conjoined crackers, but the taste is reaching. It's a tad bitter to my tastebuds. As Julia put it so perfectly when we first tried them, with such hope and truth in her eyes "They've allllllmost got it".

I agree. They don't have that tanginess that made Cheez-Its so different than other cheesy crackers. I have no idea how they could replicate that particular flavor profile but I hope they do as I used to love those crackers!

I haven't tried them yet, but it's all about the tanginess! I've made sorta cheez its with a ton of miso and nooch and the ones that tasted the most like cheez its were the ones that got slightly burned in the oven.

I found these at my Whole Foods (but still no potato chips??), but as much as I used to love me some cheese crackers. . . I don't love them five bucks a small box. . worth.

i was always a cheese nips person (rather than a cheez-its person), although now i can't remember why... i've been vegan almost 10 years so it's been a really long time since i compared the two! anyhow, i love these friggin' things. maybe it's because i was a cheese nips person?

I saw a gross-but-probably-delicious recipe on Pinterest involving chicken and crushed Cheez-Its. I'm totally trying it with EB crackers and Beyond Meat!
