Do you Remember Keebler Pizzarias?

Do you Remember Keebler Pizzarias?

So many lost snack foods continue to haunt me. This week I am lamenting the too-short life of the Keebler Pizzaria. Pizzarias were a marvelous little triangular snack chip, picture a very crunch Dorito, covered in a delicious spicy pizza coating. I cannot tell you how many Friday nights I spent in my room playing computer games, my radio tuned to a distant station playing old time radio programs and crunching on Pizzarias.

I thought our chip-lationship would last forever. I was wrong.

One year I went to live with my sister for a summer after she had moved away. When I came back home and went to the Acme to pick up a bag and a 3-liter bottle of Coke and a bag o chips, the Pizzarias were gone.

I have tried the other “modern” pizza-flavored chips. The Doritos have the right shape and a decent crunch, but the flavor is nothing like the Pizzaria. TGI Fridays make a chip that has a good pizza flavor, but it lacks the correct amount of crunch and the pizza slice shape.

How is it that I can go back to the supermarket every week to find new novelty flavor chips on the shelf time and again, and yet the things I really want remain completely out of reach?

C’mon Keebler! It is time for a chip renaissance. Bring back your Tato Skins! Bring back your Pizzarias! Bring all the chips back and then put them all in my mouth.
