    Yep same here. If there were two foods I can remember my grandma having back in the day it was these and those assorted butter cookies in a blue tin can. Don't recall the name though.

    yup. works for me. Cheez Balls are great but you can't beat this deal and they're pretty much the exact same shit so I'd say UTZ comes out on top.
    $6.50 free shipping 2.2LBs.

    Who do I have to blow for Keebler to bring back Pizzarias chips?
     
  7. Those are good if you're looking for a 4-gallon tub of disappointment.

    That's a really cool way to bring back a product.

    Now if only they'd bring back the mini hula hoop tubs.

    No one seems to remember them but they existed and I want them back!

    I remember these being particularly too salty compared to cheetos puffs. Am I remembering wrong? I haven't had them since I was a kid.

    Just bid and immediately outbid, up to $72.

    These and Hawaiian Punch were my after school afternoons with my grandparents.

    I remember them being very salty and kind of greasy if left too long in the can after opening. I really want to try them again

    Yeah I helped drive up the bidding a bit because, hey why not, it's charity?

    But I feel at this high I might actually win so I'm going to bail. I'm sure it will end up going for like $500 though all said and done.

    Edit oh shit, I placed a bid for $153 and it jumped to over $200

    We'd save the cans and put things like packets of sugar, salt, and pepper we got from restaurants. I save them to put paper in there lol

    That was my first thought. If they're bringing back Cheez Balls, they need to do these next.

    Have a feeling those high bids aren't going to actually pay so the seller is going to have to go down the list to see who placed real bids. It's still early though so a wealthy individual interested in donating to a charity could still step in I suppose.

    And here I thought $500 was where this was going to end up. My last bid was at $200.

    Most likely. I doubt they went into production for just one can, and the label reads "it's back". This is just a publicity stunt to get some attention, where the winner donates to the food bank charity of their choice as it states in the auction.

    Shipping is free, and it's expedited! Much more reasonable heh

    I'm about to drop a cool mil on it. What do you guys think? I don't even like these but someone's gotta buy this, sell each individual Cheez ball separately at 150% profit.

    Do it! But don't be surprised if a week later you'll be able to buy them on Amazon for $5 a can. NOOOOOOO worth this risk though...

    Hadn't eaten a cheese ball or puff or doodle in probably twenty years, but one look at that can transported me to another time and place and instilled an irrepressible desire to consume some of these things. Had balls on the mind and they would stay there until they were in my mouth. So in the course of my usual Tuesday evening trip to the butcher shop and supermarket I procured a bag of cheese ball product previously alluded to in this thread and manufactured by the snack food purveyor known as Utz. The initial sensations—the feel of them in my fingers and the coarseness felt against the roof of my mouth—were familiar but unfortunately the taste was not. The flavor transmitted by these spheres seemed to contain a shocking lack of artificial cheese dust zest. More bland corn ball than cheese. Of course I still ate half the bag, but that isn't the point. Was left wondering: is this just what cheese balls always were? Had I built them up in my mind to be something more, sanding off the realities and recollecting only the imagined positives like a teenage love affair? Or were the Planters version really that superior? Only one way to find out. Until then here's a video of a dude making corn puffs with a tractor:

    Holy long have they been discontinued?

    I can remember eating them, but not the last time I did. It's something I didn't even know was gone that I liked.

    Its been a long time, what are the chances they do the process/recipe exactly the same? Last time these were widely available, Pizza Hut made the best pizza, pudding pops were the best, and Carnation made these addictive af 'breakfast bars' that no cereal/granola bar since has ever matched. Times change. Hell, just the cheese flavoring being made different would change the entire dynamic.

    I guess what I'm saying is,
    you're old now and you can't go home again.

    THEY BROUGHT BACK THE WRONG--

    Ah excellent I see it's been covered, but they need to bring them all back:

    [​IMG]

    Also I wonder if this cheese balls marketing stunt goes

    1. Fans demand thing
    2. Put thing on eBay in limited quantity
    3. Hype brings in the big cash
    4. Use it to cover cost of bringing thing back

    I'm joking but I do wonder how much it would cost them to bring them back to the US when they're already producing and selling them elsewhere in the world. I imagine it can't be nearly as much as if they were bringing them back from scratch.
