Planters Cheez Balls, those deliciously crunchy balls covered in orange cheese, have been meeting savory snack cravings since the ‘80s. But they were discontinued sometime in the early 2000s, and only recently came back to our store shelves. Apparently Planters is now all in with the Cheez Balls, because they just unveiled a few new flavors—and they sound ridiculously good.
The flavors were shared by Instagram account @CandyHunting. “Planters is going full force with the Cheez Balls!” they wrote in the caption. “New Jalapeño Cheddar and Blazin' Hot flavors will soon be added to the line up!”
People were beyond excited in the comments. “I need these,” one wrote. “Omg I was already having trouble not eating these and now they’re coming out with spicy kind,” another said.
We reached out to Planters, who confirmed the new versions are coming to take your standard Cheez Balls recipe and spice it up with heat and new flavors. In addition to these two flavors, you can also find White Cheddar and Nacho Cheez Balls in aisles now. That's a whole lot of Cheez-y goodness!
While you can find the latter two flavors on your next grocery run, Blazin’ Hot Cheez Balls will be available starting in April and Jalapeno Cheddar Cheez Balls will be available later this year. Honestly, it's good they're all being staggered because then we'd just all be living on Cheez Balls alone which...honestly doesn't sound all that bad!
