It all began with a mid-life crisis, when I began to realize that the corporate culture at ABC, Disney and I were no longer laughing at the same jokes. It was the universe telling me it was time to move on.
My Mama, Geraldine Cunningham, a genuine Southern Treasure in her own right, had been making her cheese straws for many years. Folks would descend upon them like locusts, begging for the savory treats at every occasion.
I couldn't leave Geraldine's cheese Straws alone, and Mama Geraldine's would not leave me alone, and I soon became obsessed with the idea of creating a business out of cheese straws. It seemed like the perfect thing for me to do after leaving the corporate world. These snacks embodied all things sacred to me. Family, southern traditions, fun, and passion for extraordinarily great food.
I dove in head first, and I am so happy to report that Mama Geraldine's Cheese Straws have become a welcomed addition to many cheese boards throughout the country.
It has become my mission in life to spread the joy of Mama Geraldine’s to the world. Today Mama Geraldine’s Cheese Straws are a top selling baked cheese savory snack, so we must have done something right.
Snack on Y’all!
