When you think classic snack food, one of the most iconic items that pops up is Cheez Balls. These round cheesy orbs were the guilty pleasures that complemented our late-night gaming binges or movie marathons. They were sadly discontinued back in 2006, but for the first time in over a decade, we’ll be able to enjoy them once again.

Planters is officially reviving their nostalgic snacks, as both Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls are returning to grocery stores nationwide this summer. They’ve been manufactured to have the same flavor, texture, and iridescent hue we all remember. That, of course, will come with the cheesy powder that we could never really wash out of our fingertips.
The rollout of these snacks will be gradual and starts on Amazon and Walmart’s websites July 1st. From there, Cheez Balls will make their way to grocery store shelves over the coming months, with a suggested price at both the store and online level being $1.99 per container.
I’m counting down the days until I can shovel these in my mouth while binging The Office nonstop.
