If you arenâ€™t hip yet to Snack Madness, read our intro post here, and click the bracket below to see our seeds and contenders. Today’s match-ups Contenders in today’s voting includes the very strong #1 seed, Ritz and a stalwart of crackers-good-for-topping= in #5 seed Triscuits. Barnum’s Animal Crackers (#8) is an intriguing contender. While they aren’t very versatile, they may provoke fond childhood memories that the more straight-forward buttery-ness of Club (#9) cannot. This section of the bracket also sees three cheese based competitors, with Cheez-its (#4) the odds on favorite in that sub-category. But perhaps Better Cheddar (#13) and Cheese Nips (#12) can make some noise. Who are you voting for and why? Share your thoughts in the comments Which snack deserves to advance?

Trimarchi March 18th, 2011 As a wild and reckless youth, I would have voted for buttery, buttery Ritz. I used to eat them by the tube. But, as a more mature, and wider, adult I must cast my vote for the Triscuit…made from whole grain, a stable platform for toppings, and available in a low-fat option for the wussy husband.
