Has a mild and slightly sweeter taste than cheddar. Creamy and soft texture. Most popular cheese for a hamburgers and grilled cheese.
Asiago Domestic
Has a delightful and unique taste. Great shredded on salads or serve cubed as a snack. Aged a minimum of five months.
Asiago, Aged
Has an intense flavor and a firm, granular feel. Aged a minimum of six months.
Semi-soft​ cheese that is made of whole milk for a mild flavor and creamy texture. Ideal to use as an appetizer, great with fruit.
Baby Swiss
Semi-soft​ cheese that is made of whole milk for a mild flavor and creamy texture. This cheese has smaller eyes than a traditional swiss and will enhance any dish or sandwich.
Bel Paese
Semi-firm cheese.
Blue Cheese
You can’t miss it! With the distinctive marbling and blue-gray veines, this type of cheese has a crumbly texture and a tangy flavor.
Popular Brands
Danish blue and castella (with very few veines)
Mild and creamy cheese. White in color. Perfect for sandwiches, party trays, and in cooked foods.
A classic french cheese that is extremely creamy and has a silky texture. Traditionally used as an appetizer or dessert. Commonly served with crackers, breads, champagne, dry wines, and fruit.
Semi-hard cheddar from england that is made with cows milk. This moist yellow cheese has a sour butter-cream flavor. Crumble it over a hot dish or salad; slice it to use on a party tray.
Black Diamond Cheddar
Canadian white cheddar found in a black wax. Aged for over three years. One of the finest cheddars available.
Cheddars Aged
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 years!
Cheddar, Mild
Cheddars range in color from bright white to deep orange. A mild cheddar is typically aged between ten days and four months. Mild cheddar has a smooth, soft texture.
Cheddar, Medium
Aged between four and ten months. The longer the cheddar is aged the more enhanced the flavor becomes. Texture is slightly drier and tends to crumble more than the mild.
Aged a minimum of ten months, even six years. This cheese has a pleasingly sharp flavor that keeps improving with age. Serve chunked or sliced. If sliced thinly this cheese will fall apart.
Cheese Curds
Cheddar cheese. White or orange in color and packaged before the cheese blocks are formed. Just pop in your mouth and enjoy.
Milder and creamier than cheddar. A wisconsin classic. This one goes with everything.
Swiss, Gruyier
A tightly textured semi-hard cheese. Related to the swiss- but has no holes. This cheese has a yellowish-beige color and a nutty flavor. Made of cows milk.
Swiss Jarlsberg
Known for its excellence and quality, this semi-soft swiss is made of part-skim cow’s milk. This lowers the fat without taking away from the full flavor.
Jalapeno Pepper
Monterey jack flavored with jalapenos. Semi-soft texture. Slice or cube it.
Pepper Jack (Hot)
Monterey jack with peppers and spices; mostly jalapenos. Good melting cheese.
