Cheese balls remind me of the 70’s. I envision parties filled with people wearing bell bottoms with big hair. I’m thinking Boogie Nights with Marky Mark, I mean Mark Wahlberg. I don’t have any memories of the 70’s since I was only a toddler but I do have clear stereotypes of the decade. And fondue, Swedish meatballs, deviled eggs, and cheese balls all fall under stereotypical 70’s appetizers. I have to say they knew what they were doing with a ball of cream cheese and shredded cheddar.
