Original Pizza Puffs are my favorite! ๐Ÿ˜‹
Can you please sell the 4 cheese pizza puffs in all the grocery stores!! I don't eat red meat and it seems like every grocery store that sells these products only sell the meat varieties of the pizza puffs, which I refuse to buy. Everyone doesn't eat meat.

assyrianpodcast.com Warren Shabaz is the inventor of the American food staple the Original Pizza Puffs, and head man in charge of Iltaco Food Company, which was started by his Grandfather in the 1920s. As a second generation Assyrian-American growing up in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, Warren eventually expanded his family's food empire, keeping it family owned, with his children next in line to take over the family business. Learn what it was like to be a pioneer in food, running a successful business, and being ingrained into the American identity and culture, while not forgetting your roots, at a time when assimilation was deemed a necessity.

The spinach and cheese pizza puffs have meat inside. I went back to the restaurant and the 2nd order also had meat inside. What a big disappointment!
