It's National Cheeseball Day❗

Today we celebrate a food that is usually the life of the party-Cheeseballs!

According to, the exact origins of this day are unknown. 


  •  Cheese spread comes in the shape of a ball served with crackers, most often around Christmas in the U.S. This cheeseball is commonly made with softened cream cheese and other ingredients.

  • Cheese puffs are a puffed corn snack coated with a mixture of cheese or cheese-flavored powders. Cheese puffs are manufactured by extruding heated corn dough through a die that forms the particular shape, most likely a ball shape.

No matter which one you celebrate, both make for terrific snacking. 

In honor of today, here's a few ways you can pay homage:
