I just can’t pass up cheese.  J and I were walking down Main Street with my parents and an aunt who were in town for Labor Day.  There were so many shops, but the Cheese Haus was one we couldn’t pass up.  We weren’t the only ones.  The store was packed.

The Frankenmuth Cheese Haus sits on the corner of a courtyard and has an interesting shape.  We went inside and there’s a one-way path around large freezers which eventually leads to the check out and the exit.  They had every kind of cheese imaginable and the cheeses they didn’t make on site, they shipped in from Wisconsin.  There’s no trying to hide that fact either as everything is clearly labeled as Frankenmuth cheese or Michigan cheese.  Along the way, there are lots of samples.

We found quite a few spreadable cheeses with crackers out for sample.  They looked and sounded good, but the Jalapeno Cheddar was delicious.  It had just enough kick to it and was nice and creamy.  I thought about grabbing a container, but having a container of cheese is dangerous in my fridge.  I would be eating it on everything and anything.

The coolest thing we saw, and my dad noticed this, was a sausage log in the shape of a Pabst Blue Ribbon bottle.  PBR is my beer of choice and having a meat log in that shape would have been awesome, but not worth the $20 they were asking for. 

We were all really good and didn’t buy any cheese even though I think we all wanted to.  We squeezed our way through the crowd of people who were buying to get to the exit.  The Frankenmuth Cheese Haus is a cheese lovers paradise.  There isn’t much there you couldn’t find.  Sure, they don’t have the Italian or Mexican cheeses, but any flavor or cheddar you want is probably in their cases.

You forgot to mention the chocolate cheese! They had 4 flavors of chocolate cheese! It was so good… I sampled them all… twice…

My bad…the chocolate cheese samples were a big hit with my group. I took a bite, but didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as J and my mom.

2 comments I’ve been meaning to add:

1) I think you already found the Dairy Store at MSU, but just in case I have to rave about their cheese for a good option close to home! And their grilled cheese sandwiches are amazing! On Mondays, they have free tomato soup to go with them…we went today, and I spent on a total of $3.10 and got a colby-jack grilled cheese on multi-grain, tomato soup & a 20 oz. diet coke!

2) If you go back towards Frankenmuth and want to try the chicken dinners without such a huge bill, Zehnder’s has a cafe downstairs with all the goodies for more reasonable prices. It’s been awhile, but I remember getting a two-piece chicken dinner with their buttered noodles (my absolute fave side) and another side for a decent price. My dad’s side of the family goes to Bavarian Inn every other Christmas and I love it, but I agree that it’s expensive for a regular visit.

Yes, we’ve found the MSU Dairy Store….a couple times. 🙂

I saw the cafe at Zehnder’s when we were walking around. There were just so many people around and we had already eaten. I’d like to try the chicken since that’s what Frankenmuth really seems to be known for. Glad there’s an option besides the all you can eat cholesterol fest.
