Fans of Pizza Hut and fans of Cheez-It were finally united on Thursday after the companies announced an epic partnership to create a limited-time masterpiece — but many questioned if the cheesy treat was worth spending any cheddar on.
According to a press release from Pizza Hut and Kellog’s, the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza features:
“Four baked jumbo squares topped with that distinctly sharp, real cheese taste you know and love from Cheez-It baked to toasty perfection. Each crispy square is stuffed in true Pizza Hut style with either cheese or pepperoni and cheese, served up with a side of marinara dipping sauce to create the ultimate, craveable mash-up that America’s been waiting for.”
The snack food mashup went live on Thursday, and some Twitter users immediately took to social media with real-life pics of the product, as well as a tasty review.
“Presentation 10/10 The smell has that distinctive cheez-it smell with the classic aroma of Pizza hit pizza Texture is a little softer than I expected,” one online critic wrote.
He admitted, “truthfully the taste starts out kinda meh but the more you eat the better it gets. Plus the marinara helps.”
The pizza earned an initial score of 6.8/10 in the review … but after the customer was unable to finish the box, he amended his score to 4.8/10.
Someone else who was able to score the pizza gave a more favorable review, tweeting out that, “Couldn’t resist taking a bite $$YUM.”
Starting Thursday, the Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza is available exclusively at Pizza Hut at the regular menu price of $6.49.
However, cheese lovers will have even more reason to celebrate on Sept. 24 when it’s moved to a special item on their value menu.
Something tells us these are going to do very well at locations near college campuses.
