Deer Creek Carawaybou_ cheese_1006

An old-fashioned Caraway Wisconsin Colby recipe brought back to life

Gold Winner at L.A. International Dairy Competition 2018

We resurrected an old-fashioned cheese recipe from 1914 to create Deer Creek’s The Carawaybou. Crafted as a classic, handmade Wisconsin Original Colby, The Carawaybou is speckled with caraway seeds for an eye-catching look and irresistible Old World flavor. The aromatic bouquet of the caraway tantalizes the senses and gives way to a distinctive gentle perfumed anise flavor that penetrates the buttery Colby without overpowering it. The slight crunch of the caraway seeds adds a pleasant contrast to the firm, yet openly curdy body of the cheese.
