Walnut Cheese Shop

Walnut Cheese Shop, Walnut, ILMy dad has been talking about this cheese shop in Walnut, IL since last year when he went and stocked up on several varieties of cheese. He gave us a hunk of tomato basil cheddar, which was delicious, so we made plans to drive up to the shop together while I visiting earlier this month. cow, Walnut Cheese Shop, Walnut, ILWalnut, Illinois is a tiny town of 1400 so it’s very impressive that Avanti Foods has set up shop there. They have a distribution facility across the street from the quaint little shop where they produce and distribute cheese and frozen pizzas. The shop looks like a Swiss chalet and offers gift items, kitchen gadgets, and of course a wide variety of cheeses. Walnut cheese shop cheese, Walnut, IL, Avanti FoodsHere’s what I picked to try: Garden Cheddar, Blueberry Cheddar, Pesto Gouda, and their “special” Swiss, which a) was SO cheap, and b) is between a baby Swiss and a regular Swiss and the woman at the shop told us it is amazing. I figured, for $3.48, it was worth the risk. I’m looking forward to cracking a couple open this weekend. Walnut, IL post office, USPS, 61376Oh!
