Heluva Good!® brand Sour Cream Dips, Cheese and Condiments have held a reputation for quality and taste for more than 85 years. The Heluva Good! name has been as much a promise as a brand name and dates back to 1925, when Perry Messinger, Heluva Good!’s founder, began making wedges of homemade washed curd cheese in a basement in Sodus, NY. Messinger sold a little, but mostly did it as a hobby. Then one day a traveling salesman stopped in and sampled a wedge. Upon tasting it, he declared, "That's a hell of a good cheese." At that moment, Messinger knew he had something very special. Today, Heluva Good! is part of the HP Hood LLC family of brands. You can now find Heluva Good! products in dairy cases throughout the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest (to the Rockies) and all of Canada.
