An iconic snack food of pop culture deserves the spotlight, so on behalf of National Cheese Doodle Day, we’ve tweaked our 2017 feature. Here’s a little background on the history of the curly cheese snack.

http://amazon.comInvented in the 1950s by Yorie Mohai, the Cheese Doodle is a snack food made out of cornmeal that is puffed, baked, fried and coated with cheddar cheese. Yohai served in World War II and when he returned home to his native Bronx, NY he joined the family business — Old London Snack Foods. During the 60s, another snack food company called Wise acquired his company and his Cheese Doodles became a snack food under the potato chip division.

To date, the company produces more than 15 million pounds of Cheese Doodles annually. The beloved Cheese Doodle is also the preferred brand sold at the NY Mets home games.
