A Wisconsin original Cheese! This Wisconsin cheese has sweet, approachable flavor with hints of nuttiness and butterscotch and a balanced hit of acidity on the finish.  Aged for four months, this Wisconsin original has a firm, dense, chewy texture, most similar to a French Mimolette. The flavor is most similar to a blend between Cheddar and Gouda cheese, Prairie Sunset is a perfect table cheese.  This Wisconsin original is great for snacking, but also makes a wonderful addition to salads, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, and more!
