Description

This 12 Year Old Cheddar isn't just cheese - it's a work of art. This limited edition cheese is not to be missed. It's smooth, sharp, and bursting with flavor. Spread throughout is crystallization that can only be found in a fine aged cheese. As cheddar ages, it goes from mild to sharp, developing a tangier taste as the microbes and enzymes transform texture and intensify flavor. This transformation is largely a result of the breakdown of proteins and milk fat giving aged Cheddar cheese crystals. Without a doubt, this is a cheese to savor.

Awesome
By Kristen Catalano

So perfect. Loved it so much and can t get enough of it!!

White and a bit too bitter for me
By Gus Thomasson

The portions were not labeled as per weight and I found them rather small.. Also while the texture was fine, the packaging adequate and the product in good condition upon arrival none the less I found the pale color distasteful and the taste rather bitter. I noted only slight crystallization.

Thanks!
By Robin D. Roberts
