    These cheese curds are the best, similar to the ones used in Quebec for poutiness, I also eat them as a snack. Well packaged and always arrived within a few days of shipping and still cold. I would recommend these cheese curds.

    I have been buying these cheese curds from Eichtens for many years and just love them. They are very similar to the ones used in poutiness made in Quebec. They are also very good as a snack. They always arrived well packaged in dry ice so the bags remained cold until arrival.. Would recommend.

    I like these cheese curds. Very similar in taste with the ones used in Quebec in their poutine, They also are great as a snack. Always delivered within a couple days of placing my order and they are still cold due to good packaging.

    I have been buying these cheese curds for many years and have always been happy with them. Love the taste and texture. I used them in a poutine or just as a snack. Either way, you can’t go wrong. Great packaging and fast shipping insured that I get them still cold.
