It's hard to imagine life without Cheddar Cheese. Most of us probably have a block or two in the fridge right now. But what if disaster strikes and there is no access to refrigeration and fresh cheese? Or what if you ran out when you least expected it? This is when Freeze Dried Sharp Cheddar Cheese comes to the rescue!

This Freeze Dried Sharp Cheddar is current production and was manufactured in 2024 by a large military defense contractor. We just purchased a large lot of these direct from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source. Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field. That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even White House staff or leadership.

You can expect to get 25+ years out of them in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil the cheese!!!

Preparation: Either eat right out of the can or rehydrate and use like regular cheese. To rehydrate the cheese, just add 2 cups of water to 1 cup of cheese and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then drain excess fluid and pat dry cheese with paper towel. That's it, now you have fresh, shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese ready to be used in any recipe! It will melt just like regular store bought cheese. Use it to make a toast or sandwich, add it to casseroles, soups, salads, tacos, or any other recipe calling for Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

Once opened they will last:
  • up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated
  • up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated.
  • up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated
These are perfect for storing and using for many years! You can have a great tasting food in minutes with no mess and no waste - and it doesn't matter if the power goes out!!! Perfect for camping, boating, travelling, or at the cabin.
