March 5th is National Cheese Doodle Day!
Here are today’s five things to know about the Cheese Doodle:
Cheetos cheese-flavored puffs became a hit in the 1950’s. Soon after, Cheez Doodles appeared.
“Cheez Doodles fingers” is the official term used when you get cheese powder on your fingers after eating any cheese flavored snack food.
Cheez Doodles are said to be one of the only packaged snack foods preferred by Julia Child.
They have recently entered pop culture as the preferred snack of ESPN NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith. They are also the favorite snack of Lincoln Peirce’s comic character Big Nate.
Wise (the company that produces Cheez Doodles) recently made their Crunchy Cheez Doodles “cheezier,” more akin to Cheetos’ flavor.
