A place on the podium at national and international cheese competitions is not foreign to the team of cheesemakers at Baker Cheese. In fact, Baker Cheese’s jalapeno string cheese has been highly awarded since its initial launch in 2016.

Recognized for its unique flavor profile including all-natural string cheese with diced jalapeno peppers, Baker Cheese’s jalapeno flavored string cheese features a creamy mozzarella flavor with just a hint of spice.
