History of National Cheese Doodle Day
The history behind the creation of National Cheese Doodle Day is still unknown. However, the snack was initially manufactured and launched to the public by King Kone Corp. of the Bronx which was owned and operated by Morrie Yohai and soon became famous as cheese puff snack on the East Coast. But it claimed to be first introduced by Frito-Lay’s snack in the 1950s. In the mid-1960s, the King Kone Corp. of the Bronx was acquired by Borden and assigned to the Wise potato chip division. Later it was acquired by KKR & Co, and then in 2000, Palladium Equity Partners purchased Wise Foods. Today, Wise Foods is owned by Arca Continental. Cheez Doodles remain one of the most reliable brands marketed by Wise.
