The Perfect Low Carb Snack: Just The Cheese


Here’s a list of some of my childhood favorite foods:

Pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches, mac and cheese, Cheese Nips, Cheetos, Doritos, Planter’s Cheez Balls, Quaker White Cheddar Rice Cakes, Smart Food White Chedder Popcorn…  Do you notice a theme?

Today, during a Google search for low carb snacks,  I discovered Just The Cheese.  I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it before. It sounds like it could be the best food-related thing to happen to me since my diabetes diagnosis. 

Why?  Just The Cheese are baked cheese snacks, virutally carb-free.  I think they’re like cheese and crackers but without the crackers.  And the description on their website says they’re “like the cheese at the edge of a pizza.”  What could be better than that?

Has anyone tried these?  Tell me, please.

Also, I also noticed they’re selling something called popped cheese and another snack item called frying cheese.

And one more thing which is totally unrelated to anything but the aforementioned Cheez Balls… When I was in sixth grade, my best friend and I wrote and performed a play called The Moon and Its Superstitions for our local History Fair contest.  I’m pretty sure the play was terrible, but we won prizes for it and were invited to compete in the state finals in Austin.  I played a woman named Joan, who, while serving dinner to her husband said, “Lie on your back and look at the moon, good luck will come to you very soon.  And now, dinner is ready.” 

What was dinner?  Broken up pieces of Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and Planter’s Cheez Balls.  We didn’t fake eat.  We actually ate while trying to speak our lines!  And we used cutlery! I always went for the Cheez Ballz because there wasn’t much chewing involved, and my words came out less garbled.  

Anyone else have cheese snack nostalgia?

No thanks–I steer clear of dairy and processed foods.
