$6.50 free shipping 2.2LBs.
Who do I have to blow for Keebler to bring back Pizzarias chips?
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!
Would pay top dollar for these.
It’s up to $69. Nice.
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.
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
$256 now whoa. I'l be picking up a bunch once they launch,they are the king of cheeseballs.
Morning update: $9,900. Plus shipping. Don’t forget that.
Hmmm this is weird.
I saw a reddit thread with multiple posts about this product yesterday. Now this... Astro turfing for a greater comeback, perhaps?
That escalated quickly; way to go y***k(54) and t***u(0)
What next, chips in a box with 2 bags of 75% air?
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.
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.
But in alm seriousness, it’d be nice to have them back by the timr i come back to visit america.
Guys you can get these still - they’re just made by other companies.
Thanks for the nostalgia. I must have repressed the memory since it was so hard to cope in a world without them.
Damn now y;all got me thinking about thos Balls
My fingers are ready
It’s amazing how many time it has to be said.
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:
I forgot those existed and now I really want some. I remember using the empty can as a Samus cannon when I was a kid.
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.
these were so damn good and way better than cheeto's puffs. i hope this means they're bringing them back.
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.
I remember eating way, waaaaaaaay too many of these as a kid. I have basically forgotten about them and reading this makes me desperately want them.
THEY BROUGHT BACK THE WRONG--
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.
