After 12-Year Hiatus, Popular Snacks Coming Back to Iowa Stores
Full disclosure. I love Cheese Balls and Cheese Curls, but I adore the ones that are spelled with a "z" on the end of Chee! It's a great day for everyone who agrees.
Planters has announced that after a dozen years off of store shelves, they're bringing back Planters Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls! It's a victory for consumers... and our taste buds!
There have been petitions, letters, and even online groups begging to bring back the tasty treats. Victory can be proclaimed.
The Head of Brand Building for Planters, Melanie Huet, said in a news release,
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. We made sure our Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls still have the same delicious taste, airy texture and fluorescent color you know and love, so our fans can enjoy a nostalgic trip down memory lane with every canister.
Speaking of nostalgia...
Planters Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls will have a suggested retail price of $1.99 for a 2.75-ounce canister of Cheez Balls or a 4-ounce canister of Cheez Curls. They'll be available beginning in July. According to the release, they'll be available for a limited time. So... either stock up or buy so many of 'em they can't stop making them. I can't wait to crunch them again!
