Back by popular demand: Planters Cheez Balls to return to store shelves


After a nearly 12 year absence, the Kraft Heinz company has announced that Planters Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls will be returning to store shelves, for a limited time.

The blue canisters that were familiar to many are set to go on sale in July at a suggested retail price of $1.99, company officials said.

Since the snacks went out of production, Kraft Heinz has received online petitions and written letters from consumers asking that they be brought back.

“We heard many impassioned pleas for us to bring Cheez Balls and Cheez Curls back over the years and we wanted to give our fans a chance to reunite with their most-missed cheesy snack,” said Planters Head of Brand Building Melanie Huet.

The company has not given any word on how long the balls and curls will be available this time.
