Ski Queen Classic Gjetost Creamy Caramel Cheese (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.


Sweet rennet whey, pasteurized goat's milk, pasteurized cow's cream and milk.

    Great–if you know what you’re getting into. I know a lot of people who have told me they tried this and didn’t like it, but I think their problem was they were going into it expecting a more traditional cheese. If you go into it with a “dessert” mindset, I think you’ll love it. I know I do!
