Ellsworth Creamery Cheddar Cheese Curds 5 oz
Displaced Wisconsinites and snack lovers across the nation have cause to rejoice: fresh from the vat cheddar cheese curds! Curd is tasty, and Ellsworth Creamery from the curd capital of Ellsworth, Wisconsin, knows how to do it right. This is the product of the first part of Cheddar making, before they are pressed together into blocks or wheels and aged to create the Cheddar we're all familiar with. Squeaky fresh, these mild, bite sized, pasteurized cow's milk morsels make for a great snack. Take a tip from the WI cheeseheads: fry them up and serve with beer.
