Ski Queen Classic Gjetost (8.8 oz.)

NORWAY. Sweet brown cheese from the mountains of Norway.

A quintessentially Norwegian Brunost ("brown cheese"). Naturally sweet with a smooth mild caramel taste from a unique blend of 80% cow's milk and 20% goat milk.

Gjetost's color is a deep caramel from scalded lactose sugars. The taste is sweet when first placed on the palate, then becomes bittersweet; may be an "acquired" taste for some. A perfect dessert cheese!

Serving & Recipe Suggestions:

  • Apple pie

  • Caramel sauce

  • Waffles and pancakes

  • Served sliced on bread

With heritage and traditions that span generations, Norwegian Brunost cheeses can vary in sweetness, with a range of distinct and nuanced flavor profiles with hints of caramel and fudge tastes.

Gjetost has a uniquely identifiable caramel-brown color. This color and its deep, full-bodied flavor comes from caramelizing the whey and natural sugars found in goats' and cows' milk.

The easiest way to enjoy Ski Queen Classic is to cut yourself a slice with a Norwegian cheese slicer to get just the right amount of brown cheese, perfect for an open-top sandwich—just like they eat in Norway.

Perfect for the whole family to enjoy, Gjetost can be enjoyed as part of breakfast, dessert, or serve it the Norwegian way—thinly sliced, with salty butter on bread!

If you're looking for a stronger flavor, try Ski Queen Goat Ekte Geitost Salty Caramel Cheese.

    I grew up with Gjetost. Having Norwegian Waffles and Gjetost is the best. Love to buy the huge 2+ lb bricks just because we go through so much.

    I had ski queen for the first time in Palm Beach a few years ago and had forgotten about it until recently. I searched everywhere for it and it was just as good as I remembered. It’s a sweet cheese that goes well with toast and strawberries. It’s unique in both texture and flavor and a huge hit to everyone i share it with
