Cheese puffs and South Park, two American favourites, shared something quite unique for a brief period of time.
Cheese puffs were invented in the United States in the 1930s. They are created by extruding heated corn dough through a die.
They come in many different shapes such as curly, ball-shaped, straight or any type of irregular shape.
South Park is also somewhat of a proudly American invention. Debuting in 1997, South Park was received incredibly well, consistently earning the highest ratings and it still remains one of Comedy Central’s highest rated shows.
South Park has also won numerous accolades which included five Primetime Emmy Awards.
In August of 2011, South Park and Cheese Puffs joined forces for a short stint. A fictitious brand of cheese puffs called “Cheesy Poofs” appears regularly in South Park and in 2011, the Frito-Lay company made a limited run of Cheesy Poofs.
It seems a really nice gesture, a sort-of tip of the hat to the creators of South Park and a rather nice, brief reunion of two entities that normally would normally have nothing in common.
