Cheez Balls Are Back, You Disgusting Monsters
By: Casha Doemland
If you're going to get technical, cheese balls never really left the shelves. Target, Walmart and surprisingly enough, Office Depot, keep the large plastic tubs you remember stocked on their shelves.
The big news is that Kraft Heinz's Planters is returning to the world of balled cheddar this July to serve up a hint of nostalgia in their retro-styled tubs. Not only that, but Amazon and Walmart.com are the only vendors included in the initial rollout, although brick and mortar stores will be added in the future.
According to Planters head of brand building Melanie Huet, “We heard many impassioned pleas for us to bring Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls back over the years, and we wanted to give our fans a chance to reunite with their most-missed cheesy snack.”
Don’t worry, it has the same delicious taste you remember, and is sure to get cheese dust on everything you love and hold dear to your heart.
While the product may only be $1.99, that doesn't mean you need to go out and see how many you can eat in one sitting or play chubby bunny with it. Either way, both scenarios end up with you having a stomach ache and falling down onto your knees repeatedly asking "why?!"
