Description

Roth cheese creamery in Monroe, Wisconsin, describes their Blue Affinee as ‘the Gateway Blue.’ If you’ve ever been a skeptic of blue cheese, Wisconsin Blue Affinee has a stunningly rich and buttery flavor that will make you forget everything you know about the flavor of blue cheese. Cook’s Illustrated rated this cheese as the top rated crumbled blue cheese both by itself and mixed into salad dressing. Blue Affinee also won a bronze award in the 2016 World Cheese Awards. This creamy buttermilk blue cheese has a wonderfully earthy, rich, and piquant flavor. The beautiful blue color of Blue Affinee makes this cheese an extravagant salad topping and brings a rich flavor to an otherwise bland salad. This Wisconsin cheese is also delicious melted onto a burger or spread on a garlic crostini. If you’re wary about trying blue cheese for the first time, or if you want to taste one of Wisconsin’s most prized blue cheeses, then Roth creamery’s Blue Affinee is the perfect choice.**

sweet, creamy, spreadable!
By Bill Gaber

This is simply amazing from the creamy center to the crumbly edge. It is sweet in initial flavor with no musty finish. I'm going to order more and create cordon bleu appetizer bites!

Perfect
By Kenneth Mitchell

I like stronger blues, but this one is still perfect. I usually take about 1 oz, let it come to room temp, and nibble on it with a small spoon. Better than ice cream. I m addicted.

perfect texture

Creamy rich met in your mouth

Blue or Bleu it is Richly Balanced !
By Elizabeth Grudzien

nothing musty, dusty, or bitter... blossoming with flavor and "buttery" softness... not to be missed... This is so good that I appreciate it best "as is" alongside a carby crisp bread or plain good bread you enjoy .. It is a gift of taste.

Repeat purchase.
