Because that's where I'm going to tell you how to win an awesome box of cheese curd paraphernalia just like the one you see up there (the box includes a big bag of fresh cheese curds, two cheese coozies, a T-shirt, a magnet and a coupon for buy one, get one free cheese curds from Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery, the official "cheese curd capital of Wisconsin").

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board has really outdone themselves with this site, which focuses on everything you ever wanted to know about cheese curds. Like a tutorial on how cheese curds are made. Or how about information on how to keep your curds fresh or what some of the best places are to find them?
