Cheese curds are a main ingredient in poutine, a dish consisting of french fries topped with fresh cheese curds, covered with brown gravy and sometimes additional ingredients. The dish originated in rural Quebec, Canada, in the late 1950s. Several Québécois communities claim to be the birthplace of poutine, and one oft-cited tale credits Fernand Lachance as inventing the name. The sauce was allegedly added later, to keep the fries warm longer.

    Food of the gods right here. I was lucky enough to grow up very close to Eichten’s and also lucky that I can now find these curds in my local Minneapolis co-op! I can easily eat a whole bag, they are so good.

    Was not included in the package although ordered and paid for. Didn’t realize until the gift recipient opened the package. I’m sure an honest mistake as it was holiday season
