Ritz leaves internet ‘speechless’ after explaining reason behind cracker shape

The iconic style of Ritz Crackers apparently isn’t just for looks, it’s also for function. 

The brand — owned by Mondelez International — recently posted a video on TikTok giving a brief explanation for the scalloped edges on its classic snack. 

The clip begins by showing off a cracker with the caption: “What people think the edges on RITZ Crackers are for.”

Then words and phrases including “wow,” “so pretty,” “aesthetic,” and “beautiful scallops” pop up on the screen over the video. 

The clip then cuts to a plate with a slice of cheese and someone holding a Ritz Cracker and rolling it along the slice of cheese to cut it in half, which the caption explains is “what they’re actually for.”
