Heath's Original Southern Cheese Straws
Our authentic Southern cheese straws are a North Carolina family tradition. They are still made the old-fashioned way, in small batches, handcrafted from a 1906 Ritchie family recipe in the historic Old Creamery building in downtown Concord. Our Original Recipe Heath's Cheese Straws capture the homemade taste, melt-in-your-mouth texture and spicy finish that locals say reminds them of the savory treat they grew up with.
A true Southern delicacy made for sharing
Heath’s Cheese Straws gift tins are the epitome of Southern hospitality as hostess gifts and housewarming gifts. Our cheese straws have been featured in VIP gift baskets for The Charlotte Hornets, The Carolina Panthers and NASCAR — located in our hometown. (We highly recommend them for all sporting events! They pair well with tailgating beverages.) And cheese straws are a Southern wedding tradition and make fun wedding favors. They're perfect, too, for expats who live far from home. There is no better reminder of the Old North State!
