(PRWEB) November 10, 2009 -- A Charlotte woman who turned her hobby of baking gifts for family and fri into a successful culinary business has taken her enterprise nationwide at

Donna "Dee Dee" Norton, a mother and grandmother, founded Dee Dee's Gourmet Cheese Straws in 1999. For many hostesses, cheese straws are an essential component of appetizer trays. Norton has set a new standard for cheese straws through the use of high-quality aged real sharp cheddar cheese and a unique hand-blending process with special seasoning. She has created a cheese straw unlike most on the market featuring a rich, buttery flavor with a spicy Southern zing. Norton's secret blending technique also creates a perfect, crispy crunch.

Norton says, "The biggest compliment, and the one I hear most often, is when people tell me my cheese straws remind me of their grandmother's. That is exactly our intention and I am thrilled beyond words that after many years of growing Dee Dee's Gourmet Cheese Straws by word of mouth, we have built the company to deliver Dee Dee's Gourmet Cheese Straws coast-to-coast."

Dee Dee's Gourmet Cheese Straws are available in a variety of sizes. In plastic re-closable, tamper-proof containers, the cheese straws are sold in 4.125 oz., 8.125 oz., 14 oz. and 1.5 lb containers. In tins, they are available in 8.125 oz & 12 oz. Dee Dee's Gourmet Cheese Straws are also available in a smaller size straw called "Little Gemmies" that are approximately 1" in length and approximately 1.66 grams per Gemmie and are available in the same packaging options listed above.

For additional information on distribution, private label or custom-label personalized corporate gifts please contact Marc Singer, Cherie Richie or Donna Norton at 1-980-207-1071. Product samples and high-resolution images are available upon request.
