It’s been reported that Planters Cheez Balls will be returning to stores after nearly 12 years! The Internet is going crazy and everyone’s super excited to indulge in the nostalgia.
After a long, cold 12 years of the beloved snack being off the shelves, it will return for a limited time only to Walmart and Amazon beginning July 1st. A spokesperson from the company has revealed that fans of the snack had been petitioning this through Facebook groups and forums since it was discontinued in 2006.
While the company plans to only roll out some Planters Cheez Balls online to Walmart.com and Amazon, they are planning to delve into some other retailers and brick-and-mortar stores as well. This can be expected sometime in the upcoming months.
Cheez Balls aren’t the only cheese-flavored snack returning from Planters. They are also bringing back their Cheez Curls as part of the release as well. Fans could not be more excited for this 2-for-1 release!
Some fans are so excited that they are willing to bid on an empty can with the new packaging. It looks similar to the old can, except with the addition of “it’s back” written in a yellow circle! One auction for an empty Planters can with the new packaging is up to nearly $450 on Ebay. This is only in addition to other crazy cheese-obsessed fans and their antics online in celebration of the announcement.
Planters was originally founded in 1906 and is well-known for the Mr. Peanut icon that has symbolized the company for decades. Many of the Planters products that remain on grocery store shelves to this day include honey cocktail peanuts, salted cashews, smoked almonds, and many more delicious snacks!
