Leigh Anne Brodsky, President of Nickelodeon Consumer Products, described the soon-to-be released product as "a salty snack that's cheesy in flavor," and she expects that they will be well-received by fans. Co-creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, themselves, were on-board and involved with the development of real-life Cheesy Poofs to ensure the snack remained faithful to the iconic animated version.

Instead of just watching Eric Cartman and his South Park buddies chow down on their formerly fictitious cheese-flavored snack food, superfans can grab a bag of their own.
