We remember a small round waffle cheese cracker that was sold in the US south 50+ years ago. Packaged in a tube can/container. They were delicious. Does anyone remember the name? We do not believe it was Old London Waffle Snack. Thanks for any help.

That's what I thought of, but didn't they come in a bag?

The ones in the tall thin can/cylinder were not called Cheese Waffies. Several friends discussed this last evening and all of us remember these but just can't come up with the name.

I found this quote on Roadfood.com Forum -

"Cheez Waffies were originally manufactured in the northeast by Old London and indeed they were packed in a tubular cardboard container, I remember that vividly; Wise licenses the name for broader distribution. In fact, you can still find 'original' Old London brand in many supermarkets in the NY area (Waldbaum's for sure, occasionally Pathmark and Shop-Rite), although they are called "Waffle Snacks". In fact, in addition to the familiar and traditional 'cheddar' flavored waffies, Old London produces a 'swiss' flavor waffie, which I have tried, but which isn't nearly as good as the 'cheddar' flavored ones.
There's loads of good information on this 'internet' thing, via such sites as "Google" (which kicks up the Old London Foods website pretty fast) If you're that interested, I'm sure you could search out a photo of the old container and then post it here for all to enjoy."

Maybe they had a different name and packaging then?

Thanks. Yes we all found Old London "Cheez Waffies" but we do not think that was the ones we had many years ago. But we are old. Hence the reason none of us can pull up another name in our memory bank. LOL. Thanks for the replies and comments.
PS I have just about exhausted my Google search on this subject.

"The south" is a large geographical area. Can you narrow it down to a state? May have been a local vendor back then.
