Math Is Hard
Oooh, what is "squeeky cheese"?
Squeakycheese (cheese curd) is fresh, young cheddar cheese in the natural, random shape and form before being processed into blocks and aged. (Cheddar cheese is typically aged from 60 days to 4 years before being sold.) It's most amazing quality of course is that it squeaks when it's eaten. SqueakyCheese is it's very best at room temperature or even slightly warmed. Unlike the aged variety of Cheddar, curds lose their desirable qualities if refrigerated or stored for a long period of time (the squeak disappears and they turn dry and salty). This means that even if you can find them in ordinary supermarkets, they are probably a few weeks old, and will have lost their incredible taste. But the freshly made and rush shipped cheese curds from squeakycheese.com still have their moist squeaky properties.
I wonder if they were refrigerated too long.
