As a child, I enjoyed these little cheese rolls from a grocery store's bakery/deli counter (an IGA in Paris, Tennessee, USA), but have not seen them for about 24 years. They were small straw-like rolls, about 6 inches long and less than a half inch in diameter. The outside was a thin cheddar cheese-flavored wafer-like coating that could be unpeeled in layers. The inside was a soft cheddar cheese filling.
They were almost identical to piroulines, but with cheese-flavored outside and cheese inside (as opposed to chocolate). They were not really sweet, but the outside cheese wafer coating could "almost" be described as sweet. Not dessert-like, though. And the inside was definitely rich and cheddar-y.
They were decidedly not the traditional extruded "cheese straws", but could only be described as the cheese equivalent of a pirouline. I am almost certain that these were not made in the bakery at the store, for they looked too labor-intensive. I imagine they were bought in bulk, but I have never seen them anywhere else.
Has anyone seen something like this? Do you know what they are called or where to find them? Thanks!
