What is cheese Roll?
Cheese roll, cheese buns, cheese breads, pão de queijo, chipá, or cuñapé, are a variety of small, baked, cheese-flavored rolls, a popular snack and breakfast food in Bolivia, Brazil (specially in the state of Minas Gerais), Paraguay and northern Argentina. Its origin is uncertain; it is speculated[by whom?] that the recipe has existed since the eighteenth century in Minas Gerais (Brazil), but it became popular throughout the country after the 1950s. It’s also widely eaten in northern Argentina. In countries where the snack is popular, it is inexpensive and often sold from street side stands by vendors carrying a heat-preserving container. In Brazil, it’s very commonly found in groceries, supermarkets and bakeries, industrialized and/or freshly made.
In Brazil, pão de queijo is a popular breakfast dish and snack. Made of tapioca starch, a large number of consumers prefer to buy the mix and bake the bread at home, rather than buying it ready-made; however, pão de queijo continues to be widely sold at snack bars and bakeries. Pão de queijo can also be bought frozen at supermarkets for baking, with brands such as Forno de Minas, Casa do Pão de Queijo and many others featuring as producers. In Brazil, cheese puff mix packages are easily found in most supermarkets, with brands such as Yoki and Hikari dominating the market. A continuing growth exists for pre-prepared products, with brand availability depending on the particular supermarket.
