After Over A Decade, Planters Cheez Balls Are Finally Coming Back

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.

Cheesy Poof Crusted Chicken Strips, Because This is America

What do you do when you have a pantry full of Roasted Pistachios, Corn, Bean and Roasted Pepper Salsa, a package of Buffalo-Style Blue Cheese Dip Mix, a bag of Blue Corn Tortilla chips, Cheddar Cheese Balls, and skinless chicken breast strips?

Well if your mind works like our friend Nick’s does, you turn them into a Cheesy Poof Crusted Chicken Strips. Utilizing boneless chicken strips in flour, and then an egg and milk batter, then topped with crushed up cheese balls, these strips baked in the oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes and were ready to grub.

I know Nick didn’t use “Cheesy Poofs” in his recipe, but I’m a South Park fan, and think Cheesy Poofs are a great way to depict the type of consistency that “cheese balls” maintain. Eat on:
