Cheez Balls Is Launching New Flavors For The First Time Ever

Cheez Balls Is Launching New Flavors For The First Time Ever
Posted at 1:25 PM, Feb 18, 2020

If the return of fanny packs and Tamagotchis hasn’t convinced you that the ’90s are back in a big way, maybe this news will.

After online petitions and letters from fans convinced Planters to bring back its beloved ’90s snack Cheez Balls in 2018, the company said they would only be available for a limited time. Now, however, it looks like the cheesy, puffed globes are sticking around, and what’s more, they’re adding four new flavors to the family!

For the first time ever, Cheez Balls will come in more than just your standard orange cheese flavor. Just in time for summer snacking, White Cheddar, Nacho and Blazin’ Hot Cheez Balls will hit store shelves in April, while a fourth flavor — Jalapeño Cheddar — will be available nationally later this year.


“There has been incredible excitement around the return of Planters Cheez Balls over the past few years,” Samantha Hess, brand manager for Planters said in a statement. “We know fans love the cheesy flavor of Cheez Balls, but they also crave new and interesting flavor options.”

At the same time Cheez Balls hit stores again, Planters also brought back Cheez Curls, which are similar to Cheetos. Those are also still available nationwide, including at Target for $2.99 per canister.

Craving some more ’90s snack food favorites? You’re in luck because you can give your tastebuds a sweet treat when Dunkaroos return to store shelves this summer!

The iconic cookie and frosting duo will be available for dunking in its most classic flavor: vanilla cookies and vanilla frosting with rainbow sprinkles. While they look a little different (they’re no longer shaped like kangaroos, for example), they are the real deal!
