SAN ANTONIO – If you’ve ever wondered what the ridges are for on a RITZ cracker, then this hack may change your life.
RITZ took to social media last week and demonstrated a new way to cut the cheese (in a good way), all with just a single cracker.
The company says to simply take a RITZ cracker, lay out a piece of sliced cheese, and roll it through with the edges to cut it apart. In other words, the ridges are truly meant for cutting cheese.
You can see the demonstration in the video below:

However, after slicing the cheese with the cracker, the person in the video still tears the cheese apart with their hands, which left some users on Twitter and Tiktok wondering if this could really be considered a hack if the cheese still needs to be torn apart.
“That’s not what they’re for. You just made this up,” one user wrote on the original video.
In response to all the criticism and disbelief, Ritz posted a follow-up video on their account.
