This cheese is nice, friendly to the palette. It has a nutty flavor, like aged Swiss cheese, and a the tang of sharp cheddar. There is a lovely sweetness to it, tastes of caramel. The cheese has great character.
To me, there was no off-putting flavor that I would have to acquire a taste for. Nothing really strong, piquant, musty, sour, briney, smokey, or pungent in it's flavor; it is mild tasting.
It is rich, dense, and creamy. I hate to compare it to velveeta, but it's texture a bit similar but firmer, more dense, thought the comparisons stop there.
I've had this cheese by itself, on crackers, crusty breads, and in sandwiches; today I had some in a sandwich with sliced deli chicken, yellow mustard and clover sprouts. If I made the same sandwich and replaced the Ski Queen Gjetost Cheese, with aged Swiss, and the yellow mustard with honey mustard; the sandwiches would have a similar flavor profile.
This cheese will be a fun addition to my next cheese & fresh fruit platter.
This cheese is nice for when peckish; being savory, nutty, sweet, and filling.
Even if you are not adventurous when trying different cheeses, I would sooner recommend this cheese to try; because it is unintimidating, mild with no strong flavor, rather than recommend bleu cheese, or even smoked Gouda. This is a fun cheese!

Nothing like white goat cheese, it's sweet and with a tiny hint of bitter. Being a norwegian-american family we eat it every day if we can get hold of it. I was surprised to see it listed as gourmet, its an everyday food over there. Like the picture on the wrapper, its sliced using a cheese slicer, a knife or wire cutter will cut too thick. bjorklund makes a good one. Most commonly served for breakfast or lunch on buttered rolls or bread. I like it on a sandwich with a layer of good jam under. Its good on toast and buttered waffles where the heat causes the slices to sweat and melt slightly, changing the texture, and making it delicious.

If you like caramel apples but avoid them because of the sugars then this cheese is a must for you. This is the best apple cheese I know of because it tastes like caramel and goes great with apples.

My Norwegian wife was brought up on gjetost, so was her Mom and her Mom. It seems that it was, is and will always be Ski Queen which is a very good cheese. They always called it 'chocolate cheese' because of it's flavor. As a result on December 20th I ordered two 8.8 oz packs for her for Christmas. The didn't arrive until December 26th. The feeble attempt to keep the cheese cool didn't work as it was warm upon opening. She asked how much I paid for it and I said $40.60 with shipping. She replied that she gets this same cheese at the local supermarkets for $7.49, same size and no tax. Check the price before you order.

It arrived very fresh with dry ice. Freshness is particularly important for this specific cheese since it can harden to a rock consistency when old, so that aspect was very much appreciated.
I had this cheese many times before, it's unique, tangy, has caramel notes. It's definitely an acquired taste. A true Norwegian staple. Try it if you want to give your taste buds a new experience.

far better than buying from FOODFIND!!!!!! Love Gjetost and have ordered from MANDI CHEESESHOP before and will do it again! Delivers with icepack as Gjetost requires refrigeration, something that Foodfind doesn't seem to get

I haven't had gjetost for years. I discovered it when I was a member of a cheese club, and you rarely find it here so I finally tracked it down on Amazon. (Great selection there, btw.) The shipment came quickly, and we're enjoying it still. Some people recommended eating it on crackers with jelly. I'm using a spoonful of applesauce. I like it, though I enjoy a little bit by itself too.
