Jalapeño-Spiced Cheese Puffs

Planters is Launching Jalapeño Cheddar Cheez Balls for Spicy Snacking

— February 17, 2020 — Lifestyle
If spicy snacks are your jam, you'll want to pick up a package of the new Jalapeño Cheddar Cheez Balls.

Back in the early 2000s, Planters discontinued its iconic Cheez Balls snack. Just recently the brand brought Cheez Balls back and now it's adding a bunch of new flavor options. For spicy fans, Jalapeño Cheddar Cheez Balls and Blazin' Hot Cheez Balls are the perfect options. However, White Cheddar and Nacho flavors are also available for those who prefer a more cheesy flavor with less heat.

While the White Cheddar and Nacho Cheez Balls are available now, Blazin’ Hot Cheez Balls can be found on store shelves starting in April and the Jalapeno Cheddar Cheez Balls will be available later this year.
