Just like Cheese Puffs or Cheetohs, but in a round ball shape. You can still find them today, but I've never seen anyone actually serve them at a party or anything. This was THE snack of the early 80s! Left your hands a mess of orange!!

Cheeseballs are the best! I haven't seen them come in the small "pringles like" can like they used to though. I can only find them at stores like BJ's in huge barrels.

Yeah, around where I live they only sell these things in these big ol' ghetto bags with Garfield cartoon characters on the front. ???

I REALLy wish these would come back. They were awesome. Target & some supermarkets (I've seen them at Safeway) sell a generic version, but it's just not the same.
