OAKLAND, Calif. β€” Hidden Valley Ranch and Cheez-It have come together to create the cheeziest addition to the Hidden Valley Ranch innovation lineup just in time for National Ranch Day: Introducing "Cheezy Ranch."

Crafted with 100% real cheese and the zesty flavor of ranch, Cheezy Ranch is a delicious addition to your favorite Cheez-It cracker or salty snacks for the ultimate cheezy bite, delivering a rich and savory flavor experience.

"Ranch fans never cease to amaze us with their creative twists on Hidden Valley Ranch," said CC Ciafone, marketing director at Hidden Valley Ranch. "When we caught wind of them combining the irresistible flavors of Hidden Valley Ranch with Cheez-It crackers, we were blown away. We couldn't be more thrilled to make this dream collaboration a reality."

Cheezy Ranch is the perfect way to add a cheezy ranch twist and some serious flavor to your favorite dippable foods. Drizzle it over a plate of nachos or use it as the ultimate dipping sauce for golden, crispy French fries or a freshly baked, warm soft pretzel – the possibilities are endless.

"For the first time ever, our fans can drizzle the cheezy deliciousness they know and love on just about anything!
