Why Cheese Curls ROCK My World.

Why This Girl Will Always Choose A Curl!

Is it wheat-free? Yes. Is it gluten-free? Yes. Sugar-free? Yes. Is that why I adore cheese curls? No.

By and of themselves, those would be good reasons, but then who ever said you had to have a good reason to like anything? We are bombarded daily with things we should do or that are good for us. Is that necessarily how I want to choose my snack food? I don't even want to live my life that way, let alone my guilty pleasures. We all add vegetables, even ones we don't particularly like, to our meals because we know we need them. Fruit is used as a snack food when we are being good. Who hasn't grown up with the propaganda type slogans promoting a junk-food-free diet? "You are what you eat" , "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" , "Carrots will help you see in the dark", and my favorite, "Eating the crust on your bread wil give you curly hair". I think my Polish Grandmother made that one up because my little sister wouldn't eat the crust on her homemade rye bread. I always ate mine and my hair was curly while my sister's hair couldn't have been straighter. WAIT a minute....no, it couldn't be, but I digress. The point is this: A snack is not something you are eating because you need the nutrients it contains to sustain your life. You eat it for enjoyment and in that case you are allowed to indulge yourself. When I am going down the grocery aisle, I want to be compelled by my snack food. I want to anticipate the guilty pleasure.

A Compelling Obsession

You will not be able to commit to being a cheese curl fan without also admitting to displaying some OCD behavior at times. I can not help it if the most compelling reasons to love the puffs fall into this category, and the sooner you can come to grips with it the better. Here are a few of my favorites.

TEXTURE. The way a food feels in my mouth with make or break it as a favorite. This is an extremely important feature that can not be overlooked. Cheese curls are very light and airy. When you take a bite, you can let it "melt" between your tounge and the roof of your mouth. I get just as much enjoyment out of HOW I eat it as to HOW it tastes. They are just fun to eat. This added benefit is for the OCD'ers out there. If you eat too many at one sitting, the next day you will have "balls" of skin on the roof of your mouth. You will either know what this is or you won't. You get to play with those with your tounge the next day till they are gone. Fun.

TASTE. They are curl-icious. They are very cheesy, although they are also coming in other flavors now, such as spicy and white chedder. This does depend on the brand, but it has been my experience that the higher priced brands do not always deliver the tastiest curls. Price could be a great reason on it's own, because even the name brands are still cheaper than most other types of chips. I find that many times the cheapest, cheesiest (no pun intended) looking bag has the best goods.

COLOR. I added this because whether we know it or not, color affects our moods, feelings and therefore our relationships. The color of your basic cheese curl is going to be orange. Bright orange. According to ThinkQuest.org, there are some very beneficial psychological effects to this color. "Orange has shown to have only positive affects on your emotional state. This color relieves feelings of self-pity, lack of self-worth and unwillingness to forgive. Orange opens your emotions and is a terrific antidepressant." Wow, who couldn't use something that kept you from hating yourself as you stuff your face. But it gets better. There are physiological effects as well. "Orange has proven to be a stimulus of the sexual organs. Also, it can be benefitial to the digestive system and can strengthen the immune system." Need I say more?

VOLUME. Have you ever opened a bag of chips to find that they had all broken and settled to the bottom of the bag? You won't have that problem with the puffed corn. The very nature of the puff prevents it from breaking or crushing excessively. You will start out with a full bag. I am no psycologist, but it isn't hard to see how that affects your perception. As in, "Look how much more I am getting for less money!" That makes you a smart consumer.

UNDERDOG STATUS. Due to the fact that they do not seem to have the same kind of marketing budget as other snack foods, they are overlooked and yes, looked down on by other consumers. What, though, if you live with such a marketing lemming who will only eat Sun Chips or Pringles? This is all to your advantage because then you do not have to share! I put this reason last, but we all know in our hearts that it should be Number ONE.

What Does It Say About You?

Some people think that our food choices define who we are and that they reflect our personality. Lisa Rykman said, "There are many things that could be said about people who love cheese curls, chief among them that they have orange fingers and smell like spit-up."

Dr. Alan Hirsch has a completely different take on the matter. When a trial attorney asked to use Hirsch's research about food preferences and personality to help pick a jury, Hirsch had a warning: "I told him not to pick people who like cheese curls," he says. "They're very moral, have very high standards and see things in black and white. You don't want this person on a jury, especially if your guy might be guilty. The one word that describes them is 'integrity.' " "When it comes to compatibility, however, things don't always make sense. Pretzel people, for example, who are quirky, fun, lively and energetic, are most compatible with other pretzel lovers, ambitious potato-chip people or cheese-curl fans. But it turns out that cheese-curl people are most compatible with either potato-chippers or the perfectionist tortilla-chip types."

Now It's Up To YOU

What we eat and how we eat it are very personal matters. We many not even always understand why we eat the foods we do. We are conditioned to like what we are used to eating, but I say it's time to break the mold. Search out the obsessive-compulsive in your nature and give it something new to chew on. You may not be able to give it up, but then that IS the nature of the beast. If you do venture into new territory, let it be CHEESE CURLS.....Cheesy, Breesy, Beautiful!

Let me know if you agree, or tell me what your obsessive snack food is.

What a great hub!

But I must admit, I've never been a big fan of cheese curls, and that's because my OCD takes a different direction, and that is to where there's a place for everything and everything in its place. CC dust doesn't belong either on my fingers or stuck to the corners of my mouth. Just give me a big old bar of dark chocolate, slightly chilled, that I can hold in my hand, wrapped, and peel the foil down as I nibble. Nice, clean obsession. No dust!


Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

Too funny Sally's Trove.  I love hearing about other peoples "quirks".  Technically, I don't have OCD, because I don't HAVE to do things only one way or in a certain order; I am able to deviate from the plan.  I just enjoy it more if I do it a certain way.  You're right about us being different though and you would HATE the way I like/need to eat chocolate.  I like it frozen and then I break it into pieces (they can be any shape) before I unwrap it.  There are some really small pieces and dust on the wrapper, which I don't mind at all....as long as it is in pieces.  I don't think I have eaten a candy bar without breaking it first in years.  It's funny how you just don't realize this is even a habit til someone calls you on it. 

Without writing another hub here, what I am trying to say is "Thanks" and "Welcome to the club"!

Thanks to your excellent hub, Rhym, I know exactly what I'm getting at the convenience store tonight...

My personal favorite is the snack mix with Doritos, Chex, and pretzels in it - except I only eat the Doritos. They taste better coming out of the mix than they do on their own. Don't ask me why. Plus, I feel like less of a pig because other people wind up eating the other ingredients. I'm not being a snack fiend, I'm being altruistic!


Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

That's a really good one, Annemaeve. Have you ever tried eating Doritos "WITH.....a herring!" Sorry about that, Monty Python quotes sometimes occur spontaneously. Seriously, have you tried eating Doritos and Rice Krispy treats at the same time. Yummy. Something about the sweet and savory together that makes it work. Kind of like salty french fries and soft serve ice cream.

annemaeve 8 years ago from Philly Burbs

Rhym, you're so cool, I should have known you'd be a fellow Pythonite. French fries and ice cream? That's going to take some consideration.

I can't believe it was only 2 months ago that I read this hub and posted comments. I really did go to WaWa that day and get the first cheese doodles I'd eaten in years. Something sinister and delicious happened, and I don't think I've gone 2 days in a row since then without a cheese doodle fix. I roped one of the girls at work into them as well, so we take turns getting the daily stash. Our preferred brand is Herr's, regular flavor, and (joy of joys!) we can get them at the dollar store.

I've been putting off commenting about it here, telling myself "You'll be over it soon," and "It's just a phase." But the truth can no longer be denied - hubpages has turned me into a cheese doodle addict - and I couldn't be happier!

Thanks, Rhym, for introducing my palatte to this wonderful experience.

And OH! White bread, mayo, and cheese doodles, smashed together for a sandwich. I was afraid to tell my friends for fear of sensorship, but considering this audience, maybe someone will agree with me!

Hi- very nice page(s), Rhym. Just wanted to let you know that we saw our little Loch Ness Cheese Puff ("Chessie") as an ebay link on your page!

Dear Sanjay,

That is the craziest thing I have ever seen! How did you know it was on my hub? Just find it by accident or does e-bay let you know if your page has been linked to? Anyway, Chessie is very cool and deserves the accolades. Your blog is also very well put together and full of interesting people and happenings. I will definitely be "compelled" to check it out for future postings.


sanjay 8 years ago

Looks like it just linked to your page through Google search for "Cheese Puff Loch Ness Monster"; guess that's not a super-popular search term (not sure why!) -- and that's how we found your very cool Cheese Curl page! Anyway, Chessie didn't fetch a king's ransom - so she will remain with us for a while. Maybe we'll see "The Adventures of Chessie" on a blog someday. : )

Hi Rhym! I had to get my Rhym O'Reison fix today! I loved this hub. Cheese doodles have been my favorite since I was in swaddling clothes. I hope you won't think less of me, but I prefer the hard one's, not that the puff one's aren't perfectly delicious too. The consultant to the lawyer guy cracked me up. Funny and well-written. Thanks! I'm going to read more of your stuff but I have to spread it out...make it last. Things just aren't the same without you giving me a hard time. Until then, you remain, my cheesy kreploc.

mmmm, cheese puffs. I love them but like any good food addict I have to say that plain potato chips are great, but the folded ones, they are just the best!


Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

Hey Christoph, I am glad to see you again.  Thought maybe things had gotten a little rough at the aussie site and I was feeling a little guilty.  I guess you'd rather be treated badly than not be treated at all.:) 

This was my very first hub and I had so much fun writing it.  The cartoon still cracks me up everytime I read it.  Sorry that you don't have more to choose from, but it takes more time and effort (for me anyway) to write a good hub than I have time for right now.  Plus, with all my other activities, like stalking and sadistically abusing fauxmo hubbers, there just aren't enough creative cells left for more.   

Ok, you got me....what the heck is Kreploc?


Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

Gwendymom, what do you mean when you say folded ones? Is that a new kind of chip, or do you mean the ones that folded over during the frying process and are now doubled? If that is what you mean, then I have to say that I can't eat them like that ( I CAN actually, I just prefer not too) and I have to pull them apart first...see above on OCD.


Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 8 years ago from St. Louis

Yes, yes, something like that. You did well at the Aussie slang school, too! Didn't know I was a masochist until that very moment.

I mispelled kreplach. It is a polish dumpling, with a meat filling. You said your grand ma ma was Polish so I figured...you know...maybe if I called you my kreplach, you'd think it was cute and you'd stop calling me a fauxmo.


Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

You should have called me a pierogi, which is a polish dumpling, stuffed with some kind of goodie. Delicious! And just because you tried so hard and are kind of cute, I will grant you your wish. What would rather be called? ....and don't say "anything as long as it's not late for dinner."

Okay, get a bag of salt and vinegar potato chips...the kind that really makes your mouth react simply by the smell. Then...get a bar of cold dark chocolate and smash it into smaller pieces. Now...take a bite of that chip...yep...make that puckered face look and then place a small piece of dark chocolate on your tongue and let it melt...mmmmm.

Trust me...it's sooooooo good.

That hub in question IS alot of fun, but if there was a real contest, with all the beautiful, talented ladies here I wouldn't even qualify. (Yet, why do I have some perverse pleasure in thinking that Hottie #1 doesn't exist anymore?)

I am 1/2 Polish, but the other half definitely has some Irish, just not sure what the percentage is due to some weird love triangle story of my grandmothers...anyway....I am glad you like cheesepuffs too.

Well Sixtyorso, I don't think I could have asked for anything more, except maybe some stock in the cheese puff industry! Don't you dare seek advice from Dr. Phil...you are perfect just the way you are, and the orange dust washes right off...or licks off if you prefer. Just don't eat them at your computer.

Have you always lived in South Africa? This is one of my favorite places in the world and I would live there in a minute. The geography is so diverse it would take years to see everything, and I have hardly been to a place where the people were more friendly. At least that was my experience. Thanks for coming by.

Rhym O'Reison profile image

Rhym O'Reison 8 years ago from Crowley, Tx Author

Hey B. T., I feed them to the squirrels at my house and they think they rock too, plus it keeps them from digging their hundreds of pecan treasure holes in my yard for a few minutes.  THEY don't get dust on their fur as they are very fastidious creatures and I always see them lick their little fingers before they touch anything else.  So well-behaved.  I wish I could say the same for jack-a-lopes.

Did you know that "poof" is a word the brits use to describe a gay man...short for poofter.  I have also known it to be another word for, well, flatulence.  So, I was just wondering exactly what you are pretending when you are a cheesy-poof tree?

Christoph Reilly profile image

Christoph Reilly 8 years ago from St. Louis

He's baaaaack. As for cheese doodles (I think those are the hard kind) I remember acting like the doodle was some sort of flying projectile, coming rapidly at my mouth, and I had to bite it rapidly on the way in and swallow, to make room for the next one, which was coming right away. I was a strange kid, and fat, too. I just remembered this. Of course, I'm older and wiser and totally adult, so I do it with the really HOT ones!

Thanks for the mail. It means a lot to me, it really does, and funny too! Where was I supposed to say "beautiful"? In that Hottie business? I didn't want to over do it. I figured you knew you were beautiful. Shoot, you can hold your own with anyone in the beauty category. I didn't want you to get a big head and lose that down home charm and wit, which is what catapults you to the top, even if #1 wasn't dead. Really. You know she raises pidgeons, right? And you've seen "The Birds", right? I think there was a horrible accident. You are beautiful! The stuff that dreams are made of! (send the check to the address I gave you).

I just have to step in here with my 2 cents about kreplach. Kreplach is the Yiddish version of pierogi, or perhaps the pierogi is the Polish version of kreplach. The Eastern European food tradition is rich with tasty things stuffed into a pasta-like dough. And so is the Asian (didn't pasta come from China, with Marco Polo, whose fame is lost to our youth because they know this name only from a water game in a pool?).

Kreplach looks a lot like a Chinese dumpling. Pierogi looks a lot like a half moon.

Rhyme, you and I share the Polish gene, so I thought I'd just set this straight with the gorgeous guy with the cowboy hat.

@Spryte...I don't care for those salt and vinegar chips; however, I WILL try them with the smashed up chocolate, the way you suggest. I can only imagine that the taste sensation will be something rockingly different, like banana and peanut butter (which I discovered only a year ago...who would have thought?).

Rhyme, we need more Hubs from you.

JamaGenee 7 years ago from Central Oklahoma

Rhym, if anyone ever comes up with a solution for the orange fingers thing, I'm all ears.  The place I work doesn't allow snacking at our desks, but there *are* ways to get around that (like an aspirin bottle filled with M&Ms: Me, snacking? Nope, just taking a couple of aspirin...) or knocking a pen off the desk so you can lean down to "retrieve it" and pop a tidbit from your purse before straightening up.  But orange dust on the fingers or lips would be a dead giveaway. 

As for a sandwich out of white bread, mayonnaise and cheese doodles, I *have* to try that!
