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.

Old fashioned string cheese
By Linda Mathes

Great string cheese. Does not taste like the grocery store stuff. Has a much better taste and texture.

A bit too dry

A little too dry for my taste. It does have good flavor and texture.

the REAL String Cheese
By Heidi Galizanski

Moved to AZ 3 years ago and simply could not find the true string cheese so ordered from home from Wisconsin Cheese Mart and was here in less than 24 hours! Amazing product and amazing service! No substitution for the real deal! Thank you Wisconsin Cheese Mart!

Best of the best
By Mike

Hands down the best string cheese ever made!!! As a kid my dad was a truck driver and when I herd he was heading up to the land of cheese I know this string cheese was coming home with him. Plus this is one of my best gifts to hand out. Just want to thank all of you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. Never quit making this cheese and this goes for the cheese curds and smoked cheese thanks mike Q Pittsburgh pa.

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.
