Not going to lie, we are always pleased to see any new addition to the hot & spicy-flamin’-hot crunchy curls, puffs or balls family!Well these are interesting.
That being said Grand Papa’s Hot Cheese Balls are….well….let’s just call them interesting?!
Texture wise, they exude a sort of stale, or soft crunch. But they do deliver that classic corn puff mouth meltability quality that everyone loves.
As for their flavor, first and foremost, we taste a certain level of sweetness? Sort of like honey or something.
This sweetness, combined with the cheese and always ambiguous “hot” seasoning, certainly makes for a unique, and rather tasty, flavor combo. They kind of remind us of Herr’s Hot’n Honey Cheese Curls, only without the delicious crispy corn curl quality.
So, if you enjoy your spicy soppressata and cheese pizza finished with a drizzle of honey, these may be for you!
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
Balls discovered at Shell Gas Station; Oak Park, Illinois
