Not everything goes better on a Ritz cracker

I was thinking of getting a box next shopping trip, but now will put it off a month or so.

Ritz cracker products have been recalled across the U.S. due to salmonella concerns.

Mondelēz Global LLC, the maker of Ritz products, announced Saturday that Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits are under voluntary recall because the whey powder supplier used to make the snacks is concerned about the "potential presence of Salmonella."

The company said there have been no reported illnesses, and that the recall is simply a precaution.

Snacks included in the recall include Ritz Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches in various packaging, Rits Cheeze Cracker Sandwiches, Ritz Bacon Cracker Sandwiches with Cheese Filling and Ritz Everything Crackers.

Maybe my taste buds have changed but

it seems that many of the snack items I recall from my youth have changed. I'd eat peanut butter on a Ritz rather than on bread. Now, I can't eat a Ritz at all as they leave an odd oily aftertaste. The same goes for most candy bars. I only eat these when I over buy for Halloween but their taste is not what I remember.

Stranger yet.

In Europe there are national borders that of course serve as cultural ones as well. Also, the EU isn't a monolith. Its food and drug laws aren't in lockstep. As a result, it's said, name-brand products can be different on different sides of a border. It's suspected that money is the motive.
Myself, I can't imagine the owners of Nutella e.g. wanting that to exist.

Mexican Coca Cola

I recall people saying it tasted better and the big difference was the sugar. While we still grow lots of sugar cane in parts of the south, Mexico grows more and uses it in their version of Coke. I also recall a time when, for a premium price, such products were re-offered in the US. They's sneaked in corn syrup and the public wasn't fooled. There's an overused and often modified expression that comes from the Latin saying that "taste" cannot be argued but I don't think it was meant to refer to affect on the tongue.

Not surprising.

Mondelēz BTW is very big worldwide, based in the US.
