According to National Day Calendar the actual inventor of Cheese Doodles is under debate. Generally, the credit goes to a man named Morrie Yohai who made a variety of extruded snack foods in the 1940s for his family’s company called Old London Foods. Other sources show patents for similar products in the 1930s and still other competing accounts in Wisconsin and in New Orleans as well.

Whoever invented them, people certainly seem to like them, as there are 15 million pounds of cheese doodles/puffs produced annually!
