Discovering a cheese curd in the shape of a heart is like finding a four-leaf clover, a lucky moment for celebration. These gooey wonders happen when two fresh curds are stuck together and then deep-fried. Will you find one in your next order?

1. Made with real Wisconsin cheese, they make any meal better.

Culver’s Cheese Curds are a dairyland delicacy that we’re proud to share across the country. In fact, we even created a national holiday to help spread the word about their cheesy goodness! Our curds are made with un-aged yellow and white cheddar cheese sourced locally from a family-owned dairy in Stanley, WI. With such fresh cheese, it’s inevitable that some of the curds will stick together, creating the Cheese Curd hearts our guests have come to know and love.

With a Cheese Curd heart in hand, there’s enough delicious to share. Get an order during your Valentine’s Day Culver’s date, and if you’re lucky, you can share a bite of gooey, deep-fried Wisconsin cheese with your favorite Curd Nerd. You could even go the extra mile and get them their own order of Wisconsin Cheese Curds! 😊
