Wisconsin: where great cheese balls are born
Cheese balls may not have been from around these parts originally, but here in Wisconsin, we think of cheese balls as one of our own. It could be because we've scarfed down so many of them over the years, or because they're our go-to recipe for whenever we need an appetizer that will impress. But the most likely reason the best cheese balls are Wisconsin-born: we are simply fanatical about all things cheese.
We've been making cheese for 175 years – since before we were even a state – and today we produce more flavors, styles, and varieties of cheese than anywhere else on earth. We've also won more cheese awards than any other state or country. So, whether it's making some of the best artisan cheese you'll sink your teeth into, or perfecting a retro, spherical cheesy appetizer, in Wisconsin, we're always keeping our eye on the (cheese) ball.
