6 Year Aged White Cheddar 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: 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.
Good lord this is sharp cheese as it was meant to be.
One of our local groceries carried this for a short time. Now the only way to get it is on line. The cheese has a great sharpness. It is slightly crumbly, but when serered at room temperature is easy to slice.

Ditto what everyone else has said. My favorite is the 10 year old cheddar, but my friends prefer this one, so they get it as gifts and love it!
Aged to perfection, IMO the best product Widmer’s sells.
I’m a cheese fanatic and really liked it. No crackers for this cheese. I like cutting it real thin. My wife even liked it and normally doesn’t like really sharp cheeses. It went way faster than any cheddar my wife buys. I got some Vermont 2 year aged cheddar and it didn’t have a good flavor like yours and was more expensive, so it will end up being cheese and macaroni. I’m going to try your 1, 2, 4, and 8 too. I got the 6 and 10 my initial buy.
