(WKOW) – National Cheese Curd Day is being celebrated on Tuesday!
Fresh or fried, the cheesy bites are a product of cheesemaking. They eventually become cubes of cheese once they are formed and aged.
Most cheese experts say they taste best if eaten within 12 hours of being made.
The most common curds are cheddar.
While cheese curds are a staple in Wisconsin, they are also a crucial ingredient in the Canadian dish, Poutine.
Culver’s, the fast-food restaurant chain, claims it started the holiday in 2015.
