You Can Now Buy A Tub of Cotton Candy ‘Cheese’ Balls

We’ve all been there, staring down a half-empty tub of cheese balls on the couch crying over an ex-boyfriend. Well, you can now do the same thing except with a smile on your face cause cotton candy balls exist.

No, they are not technically ‘cheese’ balls, but they are similar in their shape and flavored with cotton candy goodness.

Note that there is nothing ‘healthy’ about this snack, but we could care less.

Turns out that the snack has been out for a couple of years now, but recently became available in a giant-tub form.

Instagram account @snackbetch found the giant tub of cotton candy balls at a local BigLots store – but they can also be purchased online for store pickup on their website.

“Herr’s Crunchy and Sweet Cotton Candy Balls! We found these at Big Lots but recently found out that they are also carried at Shop Rite, on Amazon, and some gas stations,” @snackbetch wrote in the caption, before pointing out that “people either love these or hate them.”

Sure to turn your mouth blue, you can also find an even larger 18 oz tub on Amazon. The 15 oz tub contains around 650 cotton candy balls, which should last me around 20-30 minutes until I am scraping the bottom of the tub for the ‘dust’.


Reactions were definitely mixed in the comments:

“Skeptical…but curious 🤔 haha,” one wrote.

“Hate them. the caramel popcorn is good 🌈🍿though!” another person said.

“IMO they’re ok really just taste like sugar not much Cotton candy flavor 😓,” someone else chimed in.

“I need to find these at Big Lots 😮😋💙💙💙,” one wrote.
