Does anyone remember these? They were called Cheese ______

They were called Cheese "TID-BITS" and a larger version of the tid bit used to be sold in a box by itself (made by Nabisco - I think) -- It's a shame that they quit making these things

      I used to love Doo Dads too....me and my mom used to share them. I hate that they aren't available anymore, and I really can't understand why not. Anyway, I have found the Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits have a very similar flavor to the Doo Dads. Not exactly the same, but as close as we can get without the real thing. Give them a try!

        Sucks that Nabisco discontinued them, but there is another snack mix out by nabisco called Mixers, it reminds me of Doo Dads snack mix, but without the peanuts, but I think it has everthing else in it. Pretzel sticks, Oblong cheese sticks, Little chex mix looking things, and little ritz crackers. It reminds me of Doodads. Give them a try!! Hope it helps you out!!

          Doo Dads were made by Nabisco.

                Oh my gosh, I hadn't thought about Doo Dads in ages! They were a Friday night TV watching snack with my sisters, back in the days when the Mary Tyler Moore show and Bob Newhart were on! THey were also my father's favorite "car" snack. I would love to find some.

                I did a little search and found this posted in a message board:

                "Let me tell you what happened with
                Nabisco's Doo Dads. As recently as June of this year,
                I found some at an Exxon gas station here in Houston,
                Texas, where I live. This was really interesting since
                I had not seen any since the late 90s. I remember that
                it was extremely popular when I was growing up in the
                70s, 80s, and 90s, and then as 2000 rolled around,
                they were practically nowhere to be seen. That snack
                mix has been discontinued in the U.S., I believe. It's
                a Nabisco Canada product. Anyway, sometime in the 90s,
                Nabisco came out with another product called Ritz
                Snack Mixers, which was a snack mix composed of Mini
                Ritz crackers, plain, whole wheat, and cheese
                varieties, cereal that looked like wheat Chex, and
                pretzel sticks. They came in two varieties:
                Traditional and Cheddar. The Cheddar Snack Mixers came
                with more cheese crackers and everything was coated
                with cheese powder. Anyway, Ritz Snack Mixers have
                been discontinued also, but don't worry. It only gets
                better. About a month ago, I was at the supermarket,
                and lo and behold, I see this brand new product called
                Nabisco Snack Mixers! They come in two varieties:
                Traditional and Cheddar. So what is it, you might say?
                Nabisco's Doo Dads and Ritz Snack Mixers resurrected!
                They have thrown the two snacks into one package and
                renamed it! The Cheddar variety is Doo Dads with
                Cheddar Ritz Snack Mixers, and the Traditional variety
                is Doo Dads with Traditional Ritz Snack Mixers.
                Ingenious, isn't it? Oh, and the Cheddar has Cheetos
                thrown into the mix! "


                What!!!??? Where??? I live in Houston and would KILL a bus-load of kittens and orphans for a package of Doo Dads!!!! I'd murder the last unicorn for a mere lick of one of those corn Chex from Doo Dads! Doo Dads were the best snack ever made.

                Take up arms, people! Take back the Doo Dads! I propose an invasion of Canada. Liberate the Doo Dads! Don't worry, the Liberals will convince everyone it is "all about the oil" while we are stuffing our faces with the salty goodness of the real deal.

                Forget Chex's watered-down substitute.

                Liberate the Doo Dads! Bomb Canada Today!!!!

                      The key to homemade Chex (or Crispix) mix is to add hot sauce & cayenne pepper. Then make sure you have plenty of cold beer!

                        I wish GF would make an "all-Chex" Chex Mix, I pick out the pretzels and other chaff, too.
                        Chex does make one, it's called Simply Chex, and they come in the cheese flavor & I've only seen them in vending machines.

                        When I make it at home, I add more spices and don't mess around with the pretzels or peanuts or anything, just the Chex.

                        Doo Dads were good. I hadn't thought about them in years.

                        lol @ spapoop, that is the same as us calling the Mounds bars Spunow.

                          Growing up my Uncle renamed all of us kid's backwards: Idoj(pronounced "I dodge"), Ekim, Adnerb, Knarf, everybody but my Dad, "Bob". But back to "Doo Dads", I recently over the course of a couple of weeks tried to find a taste for Chex mix in the absence of "Doo Dads", they just didn't show me the love.

                            Tid Bits is correct and they were great. Doo Dads are amazing. I though they were made by Chex. I could almost be positive that they were. I had just asked my family if they remembered them and they did so I came to google them and see what happened to them and got this website. Too bad they aren't around that we know of anyway.

                              Doo Dads...TIDBITS...TWIGS...Ate 'em all. Doo Dads were the favorite summertime snacks for my friends and me, as we listened to records and talked about boys, alternating between a sip of COKE or 7 Up, and Doo Dads. When we grew up, and would get together when we were home from college, my dad always managed to have a box or two on his shelves. Thanks, Dad! The things memories are made of. TIDBITS...my mother-in-law made a delicious recipe with crushed TIDBITS, chicken and sour cream. Each piece of chicken was dipped in sour cream, then rolled in the crumbs of TIDBITs. Today, I use Pepperidge Farm Cheddar GOLDFISH. Close enough to TIDBITS, but still...For awhile, I tried TWIGS as a substitute, trying to get the same flavor. They just didn't cut it.
                              This weekend, 2 childhood friends are driving several hours to meet at my home for a 'trip down memory lane.' Doo Dads would be the perfect snack to offer, but NABISCO fixed that, right? They really dropped the ball with that decision!
