Wisconsin is leading in Cheddar production, which makes it no surprise that aged Cheddar is one of our most popular cheeses. Cheddar is usually known for its trademark yellow color, as the cheese is colored with annatto (a natural dye). This Wisconsin Cheddar does not contain color additives and has been aged for 5 Years, giving it an incredible sharp flavor with just the right amount of bite! As cheddar ages it loses its smooth, firm texture and becomes more granular and crumbly, making it perfect for sandwiches, casseroles and Mac N Cheese. Cubed it becomes an amazing addition to any gourmet cheese plate.

sharp, crystalized, value
By Bill Gaber

This delivers everything that I desire in high-quality sharp cheddar and the price is right. Salt crystals accent the sharp tang. The flavor morphs as this melts within your mouth. I especially enjoy savoring a chunk as if it was hard candy! The strong flavor enhanced a Brussels sprout casserole as if a few drops of acidic hot-sauce had been added.

wondering if the product has been previously frozen
By Barbara MacLennan

Re The above...because when it was applied & did not melt as anticipated otherwise taste is excellent

The best cheddar for salads and snacing
By Gregory Dittmer

I have previously had one year, two year and three year cheddar of other brands, but this 5 year is the best. I can't begin to imagine how great the seven year must be. This cheese is on the drier side and flakey when cut, but falls apart if you try to grate it. The cheese is ultra sharp with a mellow bite and creamy melt in your mouth flavor. I like to shave the cheese in thin slices that crumbles nicely to put in a salad

Sharp Cheddar
By Laura Peck

My husband hides this, so no one else can find it in the refrigerator. He really loves the flavor, which is intense, and the texture, which tends toward the crumbly side. If you like sharp cheddar, you will love this cheese.

By teri hamilton

The five-year cheddar is good but are used to be a seven-year white cheddar which was fantastic. Wish that was back again.

Five years sharp cheddar cheese loaf
By Mike Nolan
