I've been obsessed with Goldfish crackers for as long as I can remember. There's nothing like cracking open a new paper bag of the crunchy little fish and going elbow deep into the giant gallon bins of goldfish, shoving a whole handful into your mouth and melting into cheesy, salty goldfish bliss.
A classic childhood favorite, Goldfish crackers are seriously addictive. Known as the "snack that smiles back," these crunchy, salty, fish-shaped delights truly live up to the hype. Over the years, a variety of Goldfish flavors have come out, some of which are better than others.
We decided to rank some of the most popular flavors from worst to best—where will your favorite fall? Find out here:
9. Sweet Goldfish
8. Whole Grain Goldfish
No one is falling for the guise that you're somehow healthy. Sorry, but never compromise flavor when it comes to a snack food. Words for the wise.
7. Colored Goldfish
They are prettier to look at than they are to eat but they're really just a jazzed-up version of the original. Your can do better, Goldfish.
6. Pretzel Goldfish
Though delicious, these guys are basically just a fancy take on a classic pretzel. If you ask me, you might as well just stick with Rold Gold. These do, however, come in handy if you want to add a salty, crunchy touch to your favorite dishes. A salad topped with Goldfish? Count me in.
5. Parmesan Goldfish
A slightly bougier take on regular Goldfish, the parmesan-flavored variety does not disappoint. Pair these with your favorite glass (bottle) of wine for a college student's version of a wine and cheese party. #adulting
4. Saltine Goldfish
These babies come in clutch if you have a sore stomach, or if you have run out of oyster crackers. They are really good to pair with your favorite soups and sandwiches; however, beware they are extremely thirst-inducing.
3. Original Goldfish
Nothing like a crunchy and vaguely cheesy original Goldfish to hit the spot. One bite and you'll be instantly transported to your childhood.
2. Pizza Goldfish
You know what they say—two wrongs don't make a right. That's true, but what about two rights? Combining two already amazing comfort foods—pizza and Goldfish—is absolute genius. The pizza-flavored cheesy dust totally captures the essence of your favorite slice.
1. Flavor Blasted Goldfish
Known for their cheesy coating and powerful kick, these Goldfish have been killing the game since the day they were invented. So full of yummy cheesiness and savory aftertaste, Flavor Blasted Goldfish are finger lickin' good and are seriously addicting.
Did your favorite reign supreme? Honestly, though, no matter which flavor you go for, you can't really go wrong—Goldfish are delicious no matter what. However, when it comes to the world of cheese-flavored snacks, Goldfish are hardly alone on the shelves.
