Gjetost is the cheese that is traditional in a Norwegian breakfast and this sweet red-orange gourmet cheese does have a presence.

Gjetost is made from the whey, milk and goat's milk that is heated very slowly until the water has evaporated and the milk sugar forms a kind of brown caramelized paste. At this stage milk or cream may be added to change the fat content of the finished product.

Produced in squares this cheese has no rind, the texture may be hard or soft and it has an unmistakable sweet, almost fudgy, caramel taste. It is best served in wafer thin slices or curls with fresh fruit or crunchy vegetables.


Ingredients:whey, milk, goat's milk, cream.

We love this It's an acquired taste if you don't like it at first try it again By the 3rd taste you'll like it It's a sweet flavor that's like no other Good by itself or on crackers My grandmother used to eat it with sardeens or jelly on crackers or toast I like it by itself on crackers the best


My grandfather introduced this cheese to me as a child. He would serve it on toast for breakfast. I just love it.

Love this melted on crackers


This is my families favorite cheese for Christmas. It's great served on a slice of a Fuji apple.
