PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It hit Western Pennsylvania like a massive cheddar sauce tsunami: social media abuzz over what happened regarding Kennywood park’s world-famous Potato Patch fries, specifically their cheese fries.

Sandra Calloway was one of many to notice and take to the world wide web, decrying an apparent cheese change at the popular food stand.

“I’m pretty passionate about my cheese. I knew immediately. They changed it. Ruined my day. Everybody was complaining about it,” Calloway told KDKA’s Ross Guidotti.

The whole ordeal left such a bad taste in her mouth, Calloway took to Facebook, posting, “yall this not potato patch cheese.”

Conspiracy theories flooded the next. Who changed the cheese? Was it the Bilderbergers or the Limburgers? Consternation was brewing in the calorie, carbohydrate and cholesterol-craving public.

“You seriously changed the cheese on the potato patch fries?!?! Are you guys crazy?” Amy Majewski posted on Facebook with a photo of Potato Patch fries.

However, in an effort to make amends for the Fromage faux pas, Kennywood announced on social media Tuesday afternoon that they’d decided to cut the cheese sauce and switch back to their original recipe.

“Kennywood’s Potato Patch will revert back to its traditional cheese sauce. Thank you for your feedback and passion; we wouldn’t be here without it!” the park tweeted.

“I’m glad Kennywood is getting the message don’t mess with tradition,” Calloway said of the park’s change back to the original formula.

KDKA has reached out to Kennywood for details about the controversy, but so far hasn’t heard back.

Love it. Such an incredibly Pittsburgh thing for people to get up in arms over. Folks were calling it a yinzvestigation, just the best.

I was surprised to see Kennywood was trending on Twitter this morning and was curious to find out why. Needless to say, this is the most "Pittsburgh-est" reason I could think of.

Pittsburgh is obsessed with cheese fries. I have never experienced such a thing anywhere else. Always there's ketchup available, maybe some places have malt vinegar. But in Pittsburgh, if you don't offer cheese fries, it's anathema. :lol: This brings back good memories of Kennywood.

The trains look amazing. I wish they would hurry up and finish this thing. I cannot wait to see it in action. Still can’t believe my home park has a new coaster. Especially one with these stats.
