Cheesies Snacks

Marketing Executive

Superstar Marketing Executive Needed!

MARKETING EXECUTIVE

Cheesies is a very simple idea: take a block of cheese and turn it into a snack.

Not just any snack. Not a cheese-avoured snack. Not a ball of mystery ingredients that offer the suggestion of a cheese-like substance. A snack that’s made from actual, 100% natural cheese, and literally nothing else.

If we’re getting technical, crunchy baked cheese means cubes of cheese that have been baked to make them crunchy and really, really moreish. Since it’s literally 100% cheese and nothing added, Cheesies have no sugar, no carbs, are high protein, vegetarian and are even gluten-free. Rather mind-blowing if you ask us.
