Jazzin’ up the Ritz

The other day I bought what I thought was the same-old, same-old Ritz crackers. Wrong! Obviously a wayward design elf at Nabisco took it upon themselves to have a little fun.

You’re looking at the back… the front is still a bit schlocky, yet the fact that this minimal design passed through the ranks without being compromised is actually quite amazing.

One can only hope that the front gets slowly phased out in favor of the back. The side is particularly great…

Here’s the front… fairly standard fare.
