As the food blogger for the online gourmet food store, I know a thing or two about shipping cheese. In the cheese gift business, we say that cheese goes “out of season” in the summer. This means most of the cheeses we ship from are marked “temporarily unavailable” or require expedited shipping. With the cost of gas these days, expedited shipping might meet or exceed the cost of your cheese, but never fear, there are a few options for Wisconsin cheese lovers who want to ship cheese out-of-state in the summer without breaking the bank.

You’ve heard of pairing wine and cheese, but what about pairing sausage and cheese? Leave it to the smoked meat experts at Nueske to come up with this one. This cheese and sausage gift comes with mild cheddar, colby, an all-beef summer sausage, and a beef and pork summer sausage. Best of all, it comes packed in a heavy duty cooler to ensure safe travels even in the summertime.
