A staple to have around the house. My friends and family say they are good enough to eat alone, excellent with dip as an appetizer, or used to accompany a bowl of soup or stew. Generally they evaporate or disappear before everyone ever gets their fill of them. We like extra sharp cheddar the best. We've tried Colby, Monterey Jack, and Swiss with good results as well
