Have you ever had a couple of cocktails and tried to open those little bastards?

Scissors or 'tactical folder'. Stay away from brie with nacho chips. The sum is less than the parts.

Cracker Barrel brand. Walmart carries them. Easy opener, even for me with my Guillain Barré impaired dexterity.

Not string cheese though, they are cheese sticks. Many flavors. We buy the pepper cheese and the extra sharp cheddar.

Just pull the where it says "open here" and the wrapper comes right apart. Even after a few drinks.



A mind is a terrible thing.

Slight stray. Does anyone actually eat string cheese by pulling off the little strings? I did as a kid but now I can’t fathom why.

Tastes better that way.

Just like the shapes for cheap boxed Mac n Cheese is better than the elbows.

It does, especially with real string cheese. Real string, like the kind I to buy at Bobby Nelson Cheeseshop off I-94 in Wisconsin, is fantastic. That plastic wrapped wrap in the grocery store isn't fit for Subway.

Bobby Nelson smoked string cheese is the best!

They sell by mail too.

True story: Bobby Nelson, the store's founder, was a professional wrestler in the 1940s and 50s.

Maybe true story: He created a couple holds: the full-nelson and half-nelson.

I haven't been there in twenty years, but I'm going to call them and see how much it'll cost to ship some things here. The sausages and snack sticks were really good as well.

Between the smoked string cheese, cheese curds, landjager, bacon, aged cheddar, brats, garlic summer sausage and a couple of other things I can't do without, I almost never get out the door at Bobby Nelsons for less than $100 when I'm passing through.

WI DOT reconfigured I94 in Kenosha a few years back making Nelsons harder to access and taking some of their parking. Between moving the on ramp that was right in front of the shop, messing up the frontage road and Mars Cheese Castle continuing to expand, I'm glad Nelsons is still around.

Make sure to let your cheese warm up a bit to have the best flavor and texture too!

Is there a website?
I do love to eat some REAL Wisconsin foods from my youth but all I can find is a phone number.
That seems like a very clumsy way to go about ordering numerous items I would like to have.

They are super old school and do not. Call and ask them to mail you a price list, and then call them or write them back once you get it to place an order.
