Consumerism and Cheeseballs

So, a funny thing happened a few weeks ago. It was years in the making, and I’m not sure why it didn’t happen earlier…

My family got a Sam’s Club membership.

Sam’s Club is like BJ’s or Costco… you can buy everything supersized or in bulk. Like much of America, its mantra is “bigger is better.” (No phallic jokes, please.)

It’s important to say that I have not yet entered Sam’s Club, but the way my mom talks about it you would think that it’s a piece of Heaven.

A few weeks ago, my sister came home after food shopping with my mom, eager to show me what they had bought. Her big treasure? Over 1 pound of cheeseballs.

Please ignore the fact that we have eaten half of this tub.

I got really excited about this because we rarely get cheesepuff products. My sis was pretty psyched. Everyone knows that cheeseballs are the best type of cheesy processed products ever. They capture the most cheese flavoring, and are delightful. Mom didn’t believe us, until we made her taste a cheesepuff and then a cheeseball. the verdict? CHEESEBALLS RULE.

This was further proven when, lo and behold, a cheesy miracle occurred:

Cheeseballs are a healthy snack.

A moment of boredom led to the reading of the Cheeseballs label, which states that one serving of Cheeseballs is equivalent to 32 balls. THIRTY TWO! 32 Cheeseballs only have 130 calories and 7g of fat. 32 cheeseballs are also equivalent to 1 ounce, in case you were wondering.

May the odds of cheesy goodness be ever in your favor.

Thirty two cheeseballs sound like more cheesy goodness than it actually is…but you know what? It doesn’t matter. Cheeseballs are a kick-ass, healthy(ish) snack. Thank you, Sam’s Club, for providing me with this newfound knowledge.

This is what 32 balls of cheesy goodness looks like.

    I have actually been to Sam’s Club! I went when I was on holiday in Texas one year. It was truly an experience for someone who was overwhelmed by her first trip to Asda (our knock off version of Walmart)!! The things that stick in my mind from that visit are: ice-pops that came in a box of 250, a reclining chair that cost $75 and a man who smelt of cheese (I don’t think every branch has one of those though!). You really do need to get involved – it will blow your mind!
