Welcome to Round 2 of my “Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway” series!  Today’s giveaway is for a Grafton Village Cheese Company gift package which includes Garlic Cheddar (my favorite!), Aged Cheddar, a VT-shaped cutting board, and a wire cheese slicer.  When I was at Grafton in October, choosing which cheese to buy was insanely difficult due to the overwhelming selection of cheese carried in the shop but I think you’ll be very happy with what is included here…and I’m jealous about the cheese slicer since I regretfully didn’t pick one up for myself when I was there.  Anyway…this package will ship directly from GVCC who specializes in shipping cheese safely.  GOOD LUCK!!


To enter this giveaway here are The Rules:

  1. Answer this question in the comment section of this post (and only this post):  What is your favorite type of cheese?
  2. Only one entry per person will be accepted and you MUST include a valid email address with your comment.
  3. If you don’t see your comment post right away, please don’t post another comment.  The delay happens because I moderate all comments.
  4. You have until Friday December 2, 2011 at 11:59pm Eastern to enter this giveaway.
  5. One winner will be chosen by that handy-dandy random number generator we’re all familiar with.
  6. The winner will notified by Monday December 5, 2011.  If you do not respond to my email within 48 hours, another winner will be chosen (also at random).
  7. Giveaway is open to entries with U.S. addresses only.

    I have an allergy to cow’s milk and I miss cow’s milk cheese the most. My favorites included cheddar, provolone, mozzarella, swiss, and brie. Fortunately, I can purchase MANCHEGO at my local grocer. Manchego is made with sheep’s milk.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    Being a good Southern Belle, pimento cheeses, made with a nice sharp cheddar. But, like all the other comments, I like most of them. ( Limburger is a no-no)

    This is 100% me showing my inherent lameness but my favorite kind of cheese is an Cooper Sharp White American Cheese. It’s really great in scrambled eggs and it’s going to make the lunch I packed today awesome (a sun tried tomato wrap with buffalo chicken, baby spinach and the above named cooper sharp cheese).

  • Kristi
    November 30, 2011 at 6:27 AM

    It is so hard to pick just one! However, I really don’t know if I could live without good old mozzarella. The first time I made it was an experience!

    I LOVE a good smoked Swiss Cheese. It makes a good grilled cheese sandwich! Of course, you can’t miss the tomato soup to go along with it, either.

  • November 30, 2011 at 7:16 AM

    It’s a tie between very sharp cheddar and bleu.

    My favorite cheese is the Grafton Duet–blue cheese on top and sharp cheddar on the bottom. YUM.

  • Jessica Sala
    December 1, 2011 at 9:25 AM

    The best cheese that I have ever had the pleasure of tasting is Grafton’s Duet. I consider it “cheese pie”. The crusts….2 amazing slices of grafton cheddar.. The filling…Blue cheese. Whoever came up with the idea to meld my two favorite kind of cheeses…kudos! Best cheese in the world! The combo is amazing!

  • MaryEllen Botsford
    December 1, 2011 at 9:44 AM

    Our favorite type of cheese is cheddar. We always have some in the fridge. We first discovered Grafton cheddar while listening to a show on NPR. They were talking about how this cheddar had won the title of best cheddar. I went to their website and ordered some for my husband for Christmas. We enjoyed it so much that we made a roadtrip to Grafton to visit the factory and stock up. It is now a yearly pilgrimage we make, buying enough for us as well as gifts for others that we have “hooked” on their cheddar. Even though we have found that some of our local stores carry Grafton cheddar, we wouldn’t think of not making the trip each year! Vermont is such a beautiful place to visit!

  • December 1, 2011 at 11:42 AM

    I love cheese, but I can’t eat it since I am lactose intolerant due to chemo. However, my husband (and my dog) love cheese, so I put it in lots of stuff for them when I cook/bake.

    My favorite cheese is hard to identify since I love so many kinds. I guess today I will say smoked provolone.

  • December 2, 2011 at 10:41 AM

    I used to work in the cheese department of a food retailer and, while I love most cheese, Pyrenees Brebis is my favorite. It’s a french, semi-soft cheese from the Pyrenees region of France. It’s creamy and perfect.

  • Katie

    December 2, 2011 at 5:50 PM

    I have been a Cheddar Cheese fan all my life and I know in the recent trips to Vermont, there is REALLY good cheese made there! I am fond of Grafton DUET though, since it combinds the sharpness of the cheddar with the twang of the blue! Happy Holidays!!!
