Unlike its grocery store cousin this string cheese is made the old fashioned way. First it's kneaded like salt water taffy, extruded into rope and then most importantly soaked in brine (salt water) to dry it and give it a salty taste. This is a popular snack cheese. It is a favorite with children because it is fun to pull apart the strings that make up the rod shapes so they can be eaten individually. For those on a low-sodium diet, soaking string cheese in water will remove some of the salt content. Like many semisoft cheeses, it can be kept refrigerated for up to two weeks. This product is extremely perishable. If you ship outside the 2 day ground shipping area, you must ship air.

Fresh and Great
By Kyle Fisher

I bought this for my wife who just gave birth to our son. She loves her store bought string cheese, I on the other hand do not. I figured I would try this string cheese for her and it worked out well. As soon as the package came (still cold coming from Wisconsin to California) she wanted a piece. She fell in love with it. The flavor is hard to describe, but it's smooth and has the salty taste but not too salty. It's a perfect snack when you just want to get a little dairy in. We will be buying more.
