What is Squeaky Cheese?

Squeaky Cheese is the perfect name for young, mild cheddar, commonly known as cheese curds. As the title implies, this delectable treat ‘squeaks’ in its own special way when you chew it. Combined with its slightly salty flavor, Squeaky Cheese is a taste experience your palate won’t soon forget.

The Origin

This style of cheese originated in the province of Québec in the 1960’s. At the time, local dairy farms had surplus milk, and they needed to use it for something. Cheese-making, it turned out, was the ideal solution.

All cheese is made from curdled milk, and Squeaky Cheese is no different. The main difference between cheese curds and the traditional blocks of cheddar you see in the grocery store is age and whey content.

After curdling milk to form chunks of cheese, our cheese-makers add salt to form Squeaky Cheese. To make cheddar, the remaining curds are pressed to remove excess whey, and then aged for at least 30 days. At that point, we flash freeze individual curds so chefs and cheese-lovers everywhere can serve the squeakiest, most authentic and delicious cheese curds.
