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 semi-soft 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.

Best ever string cheese.

REAL String Cheese
By Jeffrey Falkowski

Not the garbage you get in grocery stores, this is the real deal. Moist, salty, and pulls apart just the way it should. If you like string cheese, this is a treat. This will be the best you ever have.

Just like I remember
By Rob Meeker

I've been looking for this cheese for years. I thought they quit making it. I thought I was doomed to eat the nasty store brand string cheese. So glad I finally found your website.
