Fluorescent Orange Goodness

The Utz cheese balls have made their triumphant return to the 'Co -- 35 ounces of glorious orange crunchy goodness in what appear to be 3 gallon plastic barrels.

Our first experience with these orange nuggets of delight was purely by chance. Foodnerd was hosting a "big food" party centered around bulk packaged food. I think every item was at least as big as your head. (bigger than a breadbox, certainly.) A one-gallon can of nasty dinosaur-shaped faux "spaghetti-O's" seems to stand out in my mind, but the clear champions of the evening, able to rise above the petty name-calling and in-fighting between its over-processed and supersized brethren, were the Utz cheese balls.

Light and crunchy is to be expected. But it's the butteriness that allows these balls to truly rise head and shoulders above the rest. The fact that there are NO hydrogenated oils (partially or otherwise), like for real as opposed to that Frito-Lay nonsense, is just gravy.

Utz cheese balls: a true champion.

Oh, and on the subject of excellent things orange and cheesy, you oughta check out this. (Which I stumbled across surfing around Flickr.) F'ing awesome.

and if they just made those deliciously evil Utz cheezeball tubs a little bit bigger, you wouldn't have to wash the bathtub to achieve a whole-body cheeze-wallow -- you could just climb into the container.
