Right-thinking snack aficionados everywhere rejoiced this week with the news that Planters will right a terrible wrong from 12 years ago and bring back their beloved yellow-topped canister of Cheez Balls in July.
Their Cheez Curls are also making a comeback. Cheez Curls are fine.
But here's the thing -- lost in the understandable excitement in anticipation of once more having the opportunity to pop open a canister of these gloriously cheesy orbs, eat a bunch, put them away and lick the orange dust off of one's fingertips while deciding "whatever I might as well just finish them" is a devastating bit of fine print: this engagement is for a limited-time only.
Indeed, Planters giveth, but as we learned the hard way over a decade ago, they also taketh away. We can't be expected to go through that again. Not when we already lost Dunkaroos.
