National Cheese Doodle Day

National Cheese Doodle Day is an American holiday dedicated to this popular cheese snack. It is celebrated annually on March 5. A delicate corn dough stick that is covered in melted cheese. Well, how can you refuse it!


The history of National Cheese Doodle Day is not known. Apparently someone really loved this snack and decided to set aside one day a year for it, creating this holiday.

The appearance of cheese sticks is also shrouded in mystery. There are several versions of their origin, and disputes are still going on. The most common version is that of former Marine Morrie Yohai. When he returned to civilian life, he worked for his father’s company, which focused on the production of cornmeal-based animal feed. In addition, some employees were involved in the creation of various condiments and garnishes on a cheese base. One day the machine accidentally deformed the product by releasing a corn tube. It happened in 1948. Yohai had the genius idea to cover it with cheese. That’s how the snack that is popular today was born.

Other versions say the sticks were invented back in the 1930s and two patents were issued for them to different people. There was a trial over whose patent came first. However, the first version looks more realistic.
