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.

Nice bite
By Cindy Laughlin

The difference between this 5 year old cheddar and the cheddar you get in a grocery store is like a big bowl of premium dark chocolate ice cream versus going to dairy queen for bowl of their almost ice milk. The cheddar is has a bite and if dieting not as much is needed to quench a cheese crave.

This is the best for the money. We purchase this regularly and it tastes great. Nice and bitey! Perfect with anything/everything.

What flavor
By Douglas Gault

This is the real deal. I would have scored higher if the cheese had a dryer and flakier texture. But the flavor is there! You can not go wrong with this selection. Fast prompt shipping. It takes me back to my days spent at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. You can't go wrong, but I do prefer waxed Cheeses out of Wisconsin.

no complaints... great shipping....great cheese.. what more could you ask for. THANK YOU

Sooo Good
By Cindy Laughlin

My husband and I are hooked on the 5 year old cheddar. It has just the right amount of sharpness to really get your attention. The cheese goes so well with a Light Beer and a bunch of grapes for a quiet evening at home. We tried the 8 year old but could not taste a big difference. If your tongue wasnts to be woke up with just a bit then this is for you. If you just enjoy the color yellow and want a big plate of cheese then stick with the mild cheddar. It doesn't say as much as the 5 year old.


the world best cheddar cheese 5year old extra sharp!!!
