6 Year Aged White Cheddar 1 lb Blue Ribbon Winner at the Prestigious American Cheese Society Awards 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: Rich, nutty flavor becomes increasingly sharp with age. Smooth, firm texture becomes more granular and crumbly with age. Usually golden; also available white. Slice for sandwiches, snacks; shred into casseroles, soups, sauces.
I've tasted cheddar everywhere, and I DO mean everywhere....

As a 66-year-old gourmand, I've tasted cheddar from Wisconsin, Illinois, New England, England, Montana (?, California/Florida, and a lot of other places. It's Widmer's or Grofton's in this country (definitely NOT Cabot Farms or Tilamook's), with a nod to some boutique cheeseries whose product you can't get. English Cheddar is different and way too expensive at the top. If you are VERY LUCKY, WIDMER'S WILL HAVE SOME EIGHT OR TEN-YEAR OLD AVAILABLE, but just buy the six and you will be overjoyed (but keep pleading for the ten!). You won't find better!

This cheese is great! Best chedder ever. Love the texture and smoothness. Not too strong, not too mild, just right. Had at the Iron Horse Hotel in Milwaukee.
A total experience

I purchased a Widmar Cellars 8-year aged cheddar at a Hy-Vee store in Kansas and had a "Wow!" experience. Not only was the flavor superb, but the "crystals" from the aging process gave it a very desirable texture. I hope this total experience of taste and texture is in the 6-year cheddar, too. Great product!
Cheese is a nutritious milk product that has been one of man's most important foods for thousands of years. The United States and France rank as the leading cheese-producing countries. Wisconsin is the leading cheese making state. Wisconsin Cheese comes in about 350 varieties and in many different sizes and shapes. There are literally several thousands of varieties world wide.
