Description

Wisconsin original cheese! The first Colby was made in 1874 in Colby, Wisconsin. The cheese was named after the village. Similar in flavor to Cheddar, Colby is softer and has a more open texture and high-moisture content. Colby is made the same way as Cheddar except the curds are kept separate with cold water, which prevents them from knitting together. This gives Colby a more elastic texture than Cheddar. The distinctly mild flavor makes it ideal for grilled Cheese sandwiches.

Colby
By Helen Ross

I couldn't get the 100%, but by far the best Colby Cheese I have ever put in my mouth! Doesn't even need crackers, heavenly all by itself! I bought 2 one for me and one to share with my friend, just wish the shipping wasn't so high or I would certainly order it more frequently. A+++++++++++++++ Even if you're not a 'cheese person' you won't regret buying this whatsoever, and you will buy it again.

Review on Wisconsin Colby Cheese
By David A. Kuamoo

This colby cheese is habit forming. I have noticed that a box of Ritz crackers, a block of this Colby Cheese, and a 12-oz Italian Summer Sausage will disappear within the first quarter of a football game. I speak from experience.

Very good
By Stephen D Ingram

The best I've had. At room temp it is almost creamy and smells and tastes wonderful. Not watery and rubbery like some.

Nice Mild Cheese
By Sandra Farrar

I've had this Colby Cheese before and really loved it so I ordered more in my latest order. I know it has to be the same cheese but for some reason this latest order which I ordered 2 lbs. seemed to be a little bit milder and not as sharp as the original one I had. My original Colby from this store was just a smaller block from a basket of different cheeses but I wouldn't think that should make a difference. In any event, this Colby cheese is still very nice and I do like it a lot but it could be just a tad sharper.

Heat
By Jerry Pierce

I received my shipment and noticed the lid was cracked. The inside of the box was very warm. It looked like all the oils had been cooked out of the cheese. The edges of the cheese looked a little darker than the rest of the cheese and was harder to bite after being refrigerated. The cheese seemed to have lost all it's flavor. I now have 6 & 1/2 lbs of flavorless cheese. Jerry Pierce
