Riddle me this! What’s round, “sharp” and soft, but also crunchy? Cheese balls! Their mad textures sound like a funny mystery. But spot a roly-poly orb of soft cheese and sharp cheddar with a crunchy nut coating and you know the party’s started!

Early tavern keepers blended cheeses and cream as flavourful snacks to pump beer sales, seeding the idea for modern cheese balls. Their tasty charms first hit big in 1950s entertaining and they’ve rolled out the fun onto cheese boards ever since.
