About John WM. Macy’s Cheesesticks: Long before John Wm. Macy’s CheeseSticks’ wholesale bakery or online snack store existed, John Macy created a “snack factory” in his kitchen! John has been at home in the kitchen for most of his life. During his college years, he catered clambakes for summer residents on Martha’s Vineyard and later briefly apprenticed to his uncle, a Cordon Bleu trained chef and caterer.
In the mid 1970s, just out of college, John started Easy Cook Eaty, a small catering business in Northern California. Never one to choose ready-made appetizers, John created a spicy, twisted breadstick by laminating multiple layers of sharp cheddar cheese and fresh sourdough, hand-twisting strips of the layered dough and baking them twice to a satisfying crunch.
I was given the opportunity to sample John WM. Macy’s CheeseSticks! I couldn’t wait to taste test all of them! As soon as I opened the box my son starting tearing in to them. I would have to say that my favorite was the Asiago & Cheddar CheeseCrisps. These are great for a late night snack! My son liked to eat them as an after school snack.
Melting Parmesan CheeseSticks I thought these were a little bland. I was expecting more of a parmesan flavor than what they had.
Asiago & Cheddar CheeseCrisps I loved these.
Sesame Gruyére CheeseCrisps These were probably my least favorite. I’m not a huge fan of anything sesame!
Original Cheddar CheeseSticks My husband loved these. I think he ate the box in about .5 seconds!
I didn’t get a chance to try out the SweetSticks. My husband and son had them gone before I even realized they had been opened! They both said that their favorite was the Dutch Chocolate SweetSticks. My son is an extremely picky eater. For him to eat an entire box of something is VERY rare so that tells you how good these must be!
Dutch Chocolate SweetSticks These were by far my husband and sons favorite. We actually bought a few boxes of these when we went grocery shopping this weekend!
Madagascar Vanilla Sweet Sticks My son said that these reminded him of a vanilla shake. I didn’t get a chance to taste them so I can’t say if that’s how they really taste. 🙂
If you are looking for a cheap but tasty snack for after school or even for a midnight snack I would highly recommend John WM. Macy’s! You can find them for $11.99 and up on www.cheesesticks.com.
