WSU COUGAR GOLD CHEDDAR
Our most famous & popular cheese! Winner of several
national and international awards. A rich, white cheddar with a smooth,
firm texture. This unique cheddar has a depth and intensity that most
people have never before experienced. Its creamy, lingering flavor will
leave you wanting for more! Our current stock of Cougar Gold is just over
one year in age. Buy 2 and store one for aging, as it becomes more sharp
and crumbly with age, developing crystals throughout, which can give it
kind of a crunch. NOTE: Age it for 5 years and have an amazing cheese!
DIRECTIONS: Keep Refrigerated. WSU CREAMERY Why cheese in a Can? In the
1930’s, the Creamery became interested in different ways to store cheese.
Cans seemed the best option as plastic packaging materials had not been
invented and wax packaging sometimes cracked, leading to contamination. One
of the cheeses resulting from the research was Cougar Gold. The tradition
lives on. The Mission of the WSU Creamery: We provide teaching and research
opportunities to the university community and to the dairy industry,
exceptional work experience to student employees and financial support to
students and university operations. This will be accomplished by constantly
providing safe dairy products of exceptional quality, with outstanding
