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.

If you like real cheddar cheese with a bite, this is the one to get. Won't find any cheese like this in your local Market. That's why I order from Wisconsin Cheese Mart.Cheese arrived in good shape. Can't go wrong with this cheese, by its self or added to any recipe.I use this cheese on everything. It enhances the taste of what I'm making.
