Your favorite 90s cheese snack is back
Is there anything left that the internet couldn’t do? Armed with the power of online petitions, social media and the 90s nostalgia, netizens managed to bring something back from the dead.
The Kraft Heinz Company has confirmed that the popular 90s snack we knew and love will hit the stores starting July.
For a limited time only, Planters Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls will be making its comeback. The Cheez Balls will be available in 2.75-ounce canisters, while Cheez Curls will come in 4-ounce canisters. They will sell for $1.99.
This is due the fans insistent request through social media. The company said petitions, online groups and other efforts to bring back Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls go back as far as 12 years according to an article from USA Today.
“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,” said Planters Head of Brand Building Melanie Huet.
In the most fitting way, the public announcement was made through social media with the post by ‘Mr. Peanut’ saying:
“You craved, I listened. #CheezBalls are back July 1 at select stores and online! Get ‘em while they’re… cheezy”.
