From the sharpness of the aged cheddar to the sweetness of the honey, every element contributes to a snack tray that is sure to impress!


  1. Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese (3-year-aged): This aged cheddar boasts a rich, sharp flavor with a crumbly texture. Aged for three years, it develops complex flavor profiles, including nutty undertones and a slightly tangy finish. It's the star of the snack tray, providing a bold and unforgettable taste experience.

  2. Cello Copper Kettle Cheese: Crafted by Cello Cheese Company, this cheese is a masterpiece of flavor and texture. Made in copper vats to impart a unique taste, it offers a smooth and creamy texture with hints of caramelized sweetness. It adds a touch of elegance to the snack tray, complementing the other cheeses beautifully.

  3. Fresh Mozzarella Balls (Ciliegine): These bite-sized Mozzarella balls are a delightfully fresh addition to the snack tray. Made from fresh cow's milk, they have a soft, creamy texture and a mild, milky flavor. Their small size makes them perfect for skewering on toothpicks and enjoying in every bite.

  4. Tomato Hearts: These adorable heart-shaped tomato slices add a burst of color and freshness to the snack tray. Sliced from ripe tomatoes, they offer a juicy and slightly tangy flavor that balances the richness of the cheeses. Their unique shape adds a playful touch to the presentation, making them a visually appealing addition.

  5. Red Grapes: Juicy and sweet, red grapes provide a refreshing contrast to the savory cheeses. Their burst of natural sweetness pairs beautifully with the sharpness of the cheddar and the creamy texture of the Mozzarella. They add a pop of color and a burst of flavor to every bite, making them a must-have on the snack tray.

  6. Cara Cara Orange Slices: These vibrant orange slices are as beautiful as they are delicious. Cara Cara oranges are known for their sweet and tangy flavor, with hints of raspberry and cranberry undertones. Sliced into rounds, they provide a bright and citrusy element to the snack tray, balancing the richness of the cheeses with their refreshing taste.

  7. Dried Cranberries: These plump and tart cranberries are dried to perfection, offering a chewy texture and a burst of sweet-tart flavor. They add a pop of color and a hint of tanginess to the snack tray, complementing the richness of the cheeses and the sweetness of the honey. Their chewy texture adds a satisfying contrast to the other ingredients.

  8. Dried Figs: Sweet and earthy, dried figs are a luxurious addition to the snack tray. They have a dense and chewy texture, with a rich and complex flavor reminiscent of honey and caramel. Sliced into bite-sized pieces, they add a touch of indulgence to the snack tray, elevating it to gourmet status.

  9. Honey: This natural sweetener adds a luscious touch of sweetness to the snack tray. Drizzled over the cheese cubes, it enhances their flavor and adds a hint of floral complexity. Its sticky texture helps to bind the ingredients together, creating a cohesive and irresistible snack experience.

  10. Cracked Pepper Water Crackers: These crisp and flavorful crackers provide the perfect vessel for enjoying the cheeses and accompaniments. Made with cracked black pepper for a subtle kick of heat, they offer a satisfying crunch and a hint of spice. Their neutral flavor allows the cheeses and other ingredients to shine, making them the ideal accompaniment to the snack tray.
