Why Wisconsin cheese is the bee's knees
It truly doesn't get any better than Wisconsin cheese. That's because we're dang serious about cheese in these parts. You must have a license to make cheese in Wisconsin – it's hard to believe we're the only state in the nation that does, but there you go. We're also the only state – and the only country, for that matter, outside Switzerland – that has a master cheesemaker program. Which means every master cheesemaker in America has called Wisconsin home at some point.
The question is — what happens when a whole state is dedicated to making the tastiest, highest quality cheese in the universe? Well, you win awards, for one thing. Like, 5,552 of them. You also win fans – people everywhere are fanatical about Wisconsin cheese.
So, next time you're picking up some cheese for an elegant charcuterie plate, a classic baked mac and cheese recipe, or for a grilled ham and cheese panini, just make sure it has a Proudly Wisconsin Cheese ™ badge on the label. (And be sure to congratulate your cheese on having made it to the top.)
