Making school lunches is a chore for me. Not because I don't like preparing a nice meal for my children, but because they are picky eaters and I'm always running out of ideas for new snacks or treats. If lunch is boring, they won't eat it. So I spend a lot of time checking supermarket aisles for new crackers or chips for lunch box fare. Some combinations are hits — like the new offering from Ritz with its added spices. But some are big misses. Our judges found some of each in this week's tasting of some of the newest options from popular snackmakers.
