Macy’s CheeseSticks, SweetSticks and CheeseCrisps are distributed nationwide and can be found in many of the country’s finest gourmet, natural and specialty stores, supermarket chains, luxury hotels and online at www.cheesesticks.com
Always all-natural and hand-rolled, CheeseSticks and SweetSticks are available through the Company’s online store in 4oz. 3-pack ($10.99), 6-pack ($19.99) and 12-pack ($35.99) retail boxes, as well as specialty gift tins starting at $13.99.
At first I loved the original cheddar twists, but then I realized they had a kick, so I looked at the ingredients and low and behold they have cayenne pepper as an ingredient, and seeing that I have NO tolerance for peppers or spice I had to stop eating them, but my husband seems to enjoy them. They are an upscale version of a cheeze-it but so much more interesting and flavorful. I did have a chance to also try the sweetsticks and they were the perfect ending to a meal. A hint of vanilla to cleanse the pallet after supper, or a tasty treat with coffee or tea.
