Default Where have the cheese footballs gone ?

I have searched the shops where I live and my
festive treat that I look forward to is nowhere
to be seen.
Jacob's cheese footballs RIP.


Anyone seen them in the shops ?
Thanks.

It seems Tesco & Sainsburys have them on special offer just now.

Also just spotted in the local Iceland - row upon row of them. They must be really popular in some areas!

I love the cheese centres... taste a bit like the cheese in the Ritz sandwich and also there was some 'twisty snacks' that came in a twin pack . I wish you could buy the 'cheese' in tubs!
