Our current stock of Cougar Gold is just over one year in age.


Can of Natural Cheddar CheeseNatural Cheddar

Our traditional American-Style orange cheddar cheese aged for at least one year to develop its bold, sharp flavor and crumbly texture. Never bland, this full-bodied cheese is aged to perfection, the way cheddars were meant to be!

Natural smoke flavoring is added to our Natural Cheddar and aged for at least 12 months to cultivate this award-winning, sharp cheese. A creamy, firm cheese with a distinct, lasting hickory taste.



Can of Viking CheeseViking

A gourmet, creamy-white, semi-soft cheese similar to Monterey Jack. With a delicate taste, this soothing sensation melts in your mouth. Its characteristic tiny cracks and high moisture makes it perfect for any dish.



Can of Dill Garlic CheeseDill Garlic

Dill weed, dill seed, and mild garlic are added to our Viking cheese for an optimal balance of flavor and appearance. Flecks of green and brown provide bursts of flavor in every bite!



Can of Sweet Basil CheeseSweet Basil

Our Viking cheese takes a trip to an Italian garden! Fresh and aromatic, with subtle herb notes.



Can of Hot Pepper CheeseHot Pepper

Just the right amount of diced jalapeño peppers are added to our Viking cheese to create a soft, creamy, mild impression. A good jalapeño flavor, without the overwhelming heat. Great in omelets!



Can of Crimson Fire CheeseCrimson Fire!

An award-winning cheese created on demand for our Hot Pepper lovers who wanted more “kick” in their cheese. We’ve added jalapeño and cayenne peppers to our reduced-fat Viking cheese. Deliciously spicy with red, orange and green marbling, and 1/3 less fat. This cheese is one of our top sellers!

Seasonal/Limited Flavors


Can of Cracked Pepper and Chive Cheese  Cracked Pepper & Chive

We’ve added cracked black peppercorns and chives to our Viking cheese. Available each year beginning in October, only a limited number of cans are available and it sells out quickly.
We start taking orders for this cheese each year around the beginning of October.


Seasonal Flavor CanSpring Seasonal Release

We’ve taken the cayenne pepper from our Crimson Fire! and the garlic from our Dill Garlic, added them to our Viking cheese and created Red Pepper Garlic. This seasonal cheese is creamy with some kick and a savory garlic finish.


Who knows what we’ll have next time?!?  Generally in mid-February, our Spring Seasonal Release could be a blast from the past (Red Pepper Garlic, Peppercorn Medley, etc…) or something new (curry, wasabi, ???…).
