I love cheese.  I am lactose intolerant.  Sounds like a problem, right?  Not anymore!  After some intense research (okay, a quick google search) I discovered that most cheddar cheese, especially sharp or extra sharp, contains little to no lactose.  BEST NEWS EVER, right?!  Additionally, many aged cheeses also fit into that category, such as aged swiss.  It has something to do with time and fermentation.  Science.  Next time you're at the store, read some labels and prepare to be surprised.

This cheese is always, always, always in our fridge.  It's the tastiest choice for snacking, making toaster oven nachos, topping a baked potato, creating a creamy cheese sauce, the list goes on.


Also recently discovered, Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve.

To my knowledge, it's just their extra sharp white cheddar, but aged for a very long time.  Again, SCIENCE.  This cheese is especially creamy and flavorful, packaged in a fancy looking black wrapper, and has a prestigious sounding name.  In an effort to keep all of that from going to its head, eat it atop saltine crackers.  YUM!
