Maybe there are better uses of my tender words. But giant barrels of Utz Cheese Balls have saved so many events from fading into obscurity by virtue of their day-glow orange hue, endless availability, and eminent edibility. A group of people can take a barrel of these suckers down faster than they can demolish a barrel of almost anything else, and I'm including cracker barrels.
The bottom line? Utz made it a whole lot more economical to fill up a bathtub with cheese balls. And if that isn’t worth lauding, what is?
