Cheddar Curds 1 lb Heritage: Prior to 1850, nearly all the cheese produced in the United States was Cheddar. Cheddar production in Wisconsin began in the mid 1800's and by 1880, more Cheddar was produced in Wisconsin than any other cheese variety. Today it accounts for a large percentage of the cheese made in the state, which makes Wisconsin the leader in U.S. Cheddar production. Description: A regional favorite. Wisconsin Cheese curds are most commonly white or yellow in color. Available in plain or flavored varieties. Cheese Curds are about the size and shape of shell peanuts and feature milk, milky, salty flavor. They have the same textue as Mild Cheddar cheese, but with a more springy texture. Handling Tips: Refrigerate cheese curds in the original wrapping until ready to use. If the original wrapping is removed; rewrap cheese tightly in a plastic bag with an interlocking seal to prevent air pockets and absorption of other food flavors. The flavor of most cheese is best when eaten at room temperature, so remove from your refrigerator one or two hours before serving. Cheese can dry out quickly, so do not unwrap or open the cheese until just before it is to be used. With a somewhat salty flavor, Wisconsin Cheese curds are excellent accompaniments to pale ales and lagers or with popular snacking favorites such as pretzels or nuts. Cheese curds can also be used in place of cubed cheese atop salads or alternated with fresh fruit for fun summertime kabobs.

Been buying Widmer curds for 25 years. Have them shipped to Arizona. It's all about the squeak. Love the new packaging, the flavor is good but the cheddar curds on my recent purchase are too dry and squeakless.
Sorry for the inconvenience -- with the new food laws we had to go to different type of packaging. Due to this type of packaging the cheese may be slightly drier but the same great taste is still there. I recommend heating them slightly in a microwave to bring back a little possible squeakiness and a more intense flavor.
We appreciate your feedback and your business, Joseph Widmer

I received these cheddar cheese curds and have found that they're very hard to put down. Some of the best cheese curds I've ever had! Great job Widmer's, keep up the good work! Also they were still nice and cold when I recieved with regular shipping and iced cooler, even though I live all the way down in Florida

I love cheese curds & there is no place like Wisconsin to buy them. I was born & raised in Wisconsin. I now live in Kentucky. I get the Eiscondin magazine & saw your ad. I ordered & I am happy.

Ordered this as a gift for a friend who had never had real Wisconsin curds. They were loved with the quote "next time you order from that cheese place order two of these" :)

These were good and fresh, just not quite squeaky fresh. Here in the Northeast, cheese curds can rarely be found and the ones you do find are awful. Usually when you ask someone if they have cheese curds you just get a funny look.

They may not squeak as much as the ones fresh from Widmer's store, but they still are a fun reminder of our visits.
