History behind the term 'Cheese Doodle'


The invention of the cheese puff

In 1947, a man named Edward Wilson developed a new type of snack called the cheese puff. Wilson was working as a snack food salesman when he came up with the idea to fry cornmeal and cheese together to create a light and airy snack. These early cheese puffs were made by hand and were a hit with customers.


The birth of the term 'cheese doodle'

In 1965, a company called Wise Foods introduced a new version of the cheese puff. They decided to call their snack 'cheese doodles' to differentiate it from other cheese puffs on the market. The term 'doodle' was chosen because it was a playful and whimsical word that captured the fun and enjoyable nature of the snack.


Cheese doodles go mainstream

In 1971, Wise Foods launched a major advertising campaign to promote their cheese doodles. The catchy jingle 'Cheese Doodles, cheese doodle doo!' became synonymous with the snack and helped propel it into the mainstream. The campaign also featured a mascot named Cheesey, a fun-loving character who further solidified the association between the term 'cheese doodle' and the snack.


Cheese doodles in popular culture

By the 1980s, cheese doodles had become a popular snack enjoyed by people of all ages. The term 'cheese doodle' had entered popular culture and was referenced in various forms of media. It was mentioned in TV shows, movies, and even featured in comic strips. This widespread recognition further cemented the term in the minds of consumers.


Expansion of cheese doodle varieties

As the demand for cheese doodles grew, snack food companies began experimenting with different flavors and varieties. Today, you can find cheese doodles in a wide range of flavors including spicy jalapeno, tangy barbecue, and even sweet caramel. This expansion of flavors has kept the term 'cheese doodle' relevant and popular among snack enthusiasts.
