Delaware Gold Cheese BlocksDelaware Gold:

This Colby style, farmstead cheese is made with milk from UD cows on the same property as the Creamery, Delaware Gold was created by UD students and staff.

Cost: $14 per pound

Sizes: 6- to 8-ounce portions

Aged a minimum of three months, Delaware Gold has a mild cheese flavor with buttery tangy notes. This cheese is great for snacking and cooking. And it’s versatile — used in sauces, nachos, skillet dishes, mac and cheese and quesadillas.

For the wine lover, choose an oak-aged chardonnay. The creamy full-bodied wine pairs well with tangy notes on the back end of this cheese. For the beer lover, go with your favorite IPA! The hops pair well with Delaware Gold’s tangy notes and the high carbonation cuts its buttery cream.

Cheddar Cheese Curds!

Flavors: Plain, Blue Hen® Kickin’ Curds, and Delaware Coastal Curds

Think of this cheese as the middle of the cheddar making process. 

These are the curds that would be put into molds to form a cheddar block and then aged for 2-12 months.

They have a springy texture and squeak on the teeth when you chew them.

If you don’t get much squeak when they are cold, eating them at room temperature will bring the squeak back!

The springy texture squeaks on the teeth when you chew. If you don’t get much squeak when they are cold, eating them at room temperature will bring the squeak back! These snacking cheese curds can be used in fun dishes to eat with friends. They are known for being battered, deep-fried and used in a Canadian dish called Poutine, where the curds are placed on top of French fries and then covered in warm gravy.
