Description

Wisconsin is leading in Cheddar production, which makes it no surprise that this Cheddar is one of our most popular cheeses. This Wisconsin Cheddar has been aged for over 5 years, giving it a rich flavor and slightly tangy bite. As cheddar ages it loses its smooth, firm texture and becomes more granular and crumbly. This is a traditional Wisconsin golden colored cheddar. The sharp flavor makes this cheese perfect for any beer or wine tasting, gives sandwiches a delicious zing, and can even be paired perfectly with gourmet sausage.

So Good
By Cindy Laughlin

There is so much of a difference between the cheese bought at a local supermarket and the 5 year old cheddar. My husband and I have converted to only the 5 year cheddar, It has a fulfilling sharp taste that is not for the faint hearted mild cheddar fans. It pairs great with fresh baked sourdough or rye and fresh fruit. the 5 year cheddar makes a perfet snack in the mid afternoon to hold until dinner. We also enjoy it with a glass Moscato later in the evening. We have found it takes a smaller amount of cheese to deliver a very satisfying taste therefore reducing the fat intake over Mild or 1 or 2 year old. It come down to the fact: Are you daring and love a tangy sharp challenge

5 YR. CHEDDAR CHESSE

THIS IS ONE OF YOUR BEST DELICIOUS CHESSE I,VE TASTED

Old Faithful
By Paul Clement

While it's nice to periodically experience Cheddar that's considerably older, I always come back to the 5-year-old extra sharp for my daily use. It is altogether better than I need but so affordable that I indulge myself. We use it in numerous ways from Welsh Rarebit to crackers and sausage. It never disappoints.

5 year cheddar
By Carl Ziemianski

First time I have had 5 year aged cheddar, and I must say it is amazing. I'm used to Tillamook cheese, and was told to try Wisconsin cheese. I'll definitely be buying again.
