Cheese Doodles Socially Sparked® our lives in so many ways and continue to do so. An iconic snack food of pop culture deserves the spotlight, so on behalf of National Cheese Doodle Day, we’ve tweaked our past feature. Here’s a little background on the history of the curly cheese snack.
Invented 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.
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.
OTHER CHEESE DOODLE BRAND SNACK NAMES
My personal favorite since childhood is the puffy ‘Wise’ Cheese Doodles that melt in your mouth. A tip for all those pet owners — Cheese Doodle Puffs — those round little balls — made fabulous incentives in Dog Training School, especially for giant breeds. Something to consider. Whatever your fancy, remember that today out of all days to say “Cheese” and celebrate National Cheese Doodle Day with your fave cheese doodle snack food. — Abbe is forever Socially Sparked!
