Culver’s Cravings

What’s a Wisconsin Cheese Curd?

Cheese Curds are snackable, bite-sized chunks of unaged cheese, breaded and deep-fried for a warm buttery crunch. Being from the cheese state of Wisconsin, there’s a special place in our hearts (and stomachs) for these dairyland delicacies, so much so that we created a whole day just to celebrate them, National Cheese Curd Day on October 15.

When you love Cheese Curds as much as we do, not only do you want to share them with friends and family, you want to make sure you’re serving the very best.

Every Culver’s Cheese Curd begins with farm fresh dairy from a Wisconsin family farm. From there, the milk is brought to our exclusive provider of Cheese Curds, La Grander Hillside Dairy in Stanley, Wisconsin, our friends for nearly 20 years. They use the freshest, un-aged yellow and white Wisconsin Cheddar, which is then breaded with our signature blend of herbs and spices.

Whether you find a heart-shaped curd, double curd (gasp!) or are just geeking out over a bag with friends, we’d love to know! Head to our Facebook, Instagram TikTok or Twitter and tag or use #Culvers when you share your photos—you might be in for a cheese surprise.
