In Queso You Missed It January 13th

Happy Sunday, turophiles! We’re rolling into 2019, and most of us who watch the news are pretty surprised the apocalypse hasn’t arrived. However, we do have a bit of good news. Next time you make a Costco run to stock your underground bunker, pick up some mac and cheese. That’s right- Costco now sells a 27-pound bucket of mac and cheese. Even better, with an estimated shelf life of 20 years, you’ll be able to enjoy it for decades to come. So, grab yourself a bucket, make a cup of instant coffee, and catch up on all the cheesy news worth reading.

Here’s what you might have missed this week: 

  • For those of you in the know, White Castle is more than just a burger joint. For a limited time, their mac and cheese bites (fried in cheddar batter, no less) are available at all locations. Try not to stampede.  
     
  • Grilled cheeses lead to gang violence. Well, not really. But a proposed hot food truck was rejected by a quiet Bristol park for fear that offering grilled cheese (or “cheese toasties”) and other hot foods would encourage motorbike gangs to loiter.  
     
  • Trump’s face off with House Democrats has led to a government shutdown. But it’s not all bad; a Detroit restaurant group now has a Monday special offering a free dish of its famous mac and cheese to any government employee.  
     
  • To celebrate the launch of their Nacho Cheese Chicken Chalupa, Taco Bell is building a billboard in Toronto that will dispense nacho cheese.  
     
  • We Americans love our smart devices, and a smart home cheesemaker has (almost!) arrived. Just add cultures, rennet, and milk, and you’ll have homemade cheese within a few hours.  
     
  • Cheese Plate influencer Marissa Mullen (@thatcheeseplate) weighs in on the rising cheese plate trend and why we love them so much.  
  • It’s important to start the day off right. Cottage cheese is no longer that soggy gloop your grandfather ate; it’s steadily gaining popularity again. Here are some ways to jazz up this up-and-comer.
