Muenster wasn’t invented in Wisconsin, but it was one of the first cheeses European immigrants made once they arrived to the fields that would eventually be named America’s Dairyland. According to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, muenster cheese quickly gained popularity since it slices easily, melts nicely and compliments sandwich toppings. It’s easy to tell a Muenster from cheddar or mozzarella because muenster often has an orange outside with a white interior.
If you’re fan of Muenster, you’ll want to try cheese curds from Decatur Diary. While most curds are made from cheddar cheese, Decatur Dairy makes squeaky, white muenster curds. You can try these curds and their award winning Muenster cheese anywhere in the USA with this Wisconsin cheese gift box. If you know someone who loves muenster, this gift box makes a perfect birthday, Father’s Day or thank you gift. Serve the muenster on a grilled cheese sandwich or cubed on a cheese tray with grapes, rye bread or apples.
Have you ever wondered how flavored coffee is made? To find the answer, I turned to Berres Brother’s Coffee in Watertown, Wisconsin. With over 100 flavors to choose from, Berres Brothers knows a thing or two about flavored coffee. In fact, Mark Summers visited the Berres Brothers Coffee factory to go “behind the beans” (his pun, not mine) for the Food Network show Unwrapped.
To start the process, Berres Brothers coffee experts roast the coffee beans and allow them to cool. Next they pour the beans into a container, and as the container fills they layer in the flavored syrups to get an even distribution throughout each batch of beans. Then they put the whole container on a rolling machine for five minutes to make sure each bean is coated in flavoring.
Berres Brothers best selling flavor is called Highlander Grogg, a smooth and satisfying blend of caramel, butterscotch and hazelnut. Other notable flavors include Southern Pecan Cream and Butternut Rum. If you’re near Watertown, you can stop in at the Berres Brother’s Diner to enjoy a hot cup of your favorite flavor, and then buy a bag of beans to take home. If you aren’t near Watertown, shop online for Berres Brother’s coffee gift basket at Wisconsinmade.com. Coffee gift baskets make fabulous gifts for Father’s Day, birthdays or just to say thank you!

“I thought the bacon sounded interesting, so I had to try it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that you can taste the bacon flavor, but I don’t think its overpowering. It gives a salty, smokey flavor to the caramel corn that sounds a little strange, but somehow it works. Loved it!” By knicpackfan
