Extreme Ritz! Guy Fieri Style!

While walking through the grocery store today I found myself being verbally accosted by none other than Guy Fieri.

I couldn't understand exactly what he was saying but it was impossible to mistake that voice and the way every sentence is punctuated by an exclamation point or the way words like "bananas" and "money" drip from his goateed lips like he's on the set of a low-budget, foodie-centric porno.

"Oh crap," I thought. "This is it. All my bad-mouthing has come back to haunt me and now I'm going to have to fight Guy Fieri in the snack aisle of the grocery store. In front of my daughter. Oh well, I hope he didn't bring Bobby Flay with him."

As I turned, eyeing my basket for the best weapon – Rapunzel snacks? broccolini? – I was relieved (sorta) to discover that there wasn't going to be a supermarket rumble. It was just an extreme to the max Guy Fieri motion-activated shelf display exhorting me to grab some Kraft snack crackers and get extreme this post-season. To the max.

Naturally, the snack booklet accompanying the shelf display features a Guy-inspired take on Cheese Steaks and Sliders called, what else?, Ritz Cheese Steak Sliders. See scans below and click for larger, extreme details...
