In 1941 just outside Newton Iowa on a farm called Maytag, a prize-winning blue was born. That blue was one of the first American original blues: the much beloved 'Maytag Blue Cheese'.

Wonderfully tart and milky, this cheese is a blue-lover's blue. It's ripened in hillside caves over 6 months during which it develops a dense, crumbly texture and semi-sharp flavor. Every bite of Maytag melts in the mouth releasing a slightly tangy flavor with a lemony finish.

This American gourmet cheese can be crumbled into salads, on crackers or melted on a burger while you are sipping that ale or lager. Maytag Blue Cheese is used in many recipes and loved all over the country.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. You can also purchase an entire wheel of approx. 4 pounds.


Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, lactic cultures, rennet enzymes (vegetarian), penicillium roqueforti, salt.
