Heaven comes in little chunks- and squeaks when warm

Blue Jacket Dairy LogoNo, I’m not a cheese head Packer fan from Wisconsin, but I used to have one who worked for me. Great guy, great employee with a great attitude- and a direct connection to cheese curds.

That’s right- a product desperately in need of rebranding, but, because they taste so good, who cares. In fact, I hope you don’t go looking for the booth at the 2nd Street Public Market where the Blue Jacket Dairy from Bellfountaine Ohio sells little tubs of my favorite cheese snack.

Update: Oct 4 08, Blue Jacket Dairy will not be at the 2nd Street Market anymore :-( still available on Thursdays at the Centerville market and at the Yellow Springs market.

UPDATE: Nov 14: Blue Jacket Dairy cheese curds will be available at Dorothy Lane Market- Washington Square location.

I don’t know how to describe them- but this is from their website:

Cheddar curd is simply cheddar cheese that hasn’t been aged. It is great for snacking and in salads, or melt it on toast for a fantastic sandwich. Salty, scrumptious and addictive!

Blue Jacket Dairy farmstead cheese, Ohio.

Just do me a favor, don’t buy all their curds before 11am when I usually get down to the market.

And if you warm them up just a bit in the microwave, or let them sit out on the counter to get to room temp- they’ll squeak when you eat them.

Just another reason to live in Dayton.
