            Here are just some of the ways that Crave Brothers Holiday Gift Boxes will appeal to those on your gift list.

  • For Party-Throwers: Simply put, the Crave Sampler is practically a ready-made party with cheeses to elevate everything on the menu. For example, Crave Brothers Mascarpone enriches soups and sauces, and adds a fresh, creamy note to desserts such as cookies, fresh berries or gingerbread. When you add Crave Brothers Mascarpone to your holiday menu, you’re also adding a winning ingredient. With more than 36 awards to its name, Crave Brothers Mascarpone has been recognized at numerous prestigious cheese competitions. Recent honors include First Place Awards for both Crave Brothers Mascarpone and Crave Brothers Chocolate Mascarpone at the 2019 American Cheese Society Competition.

 

  • For Artisan Cheese Fans: Selections in the gift box appeal to those who like to share high quality snack cheeses such as Crave Brothers Cheddar Cheese Curds, splurge with creamy rich cheeses like Crave Brothers Mascarpone, and elevate casual fare like pizzas and chili with Crave Brothers Farmer’s Rope String Cheese. For party fare, pair Crave Brothers White and Yellow Cheddar Cheese Curds with charcuterie, spiced nuts, fresh fruit slices or chutney and small crackers. Since their introduction, Crave Brothers Cheddar Cheese Curds have earned four First Place awards at prestigious competitions, including First Place honors at the 2019 American Cheese Society Conference and Competition. They also were voted the Second Place Winner in this year’s USA Today’s Best Cheese Curds Competition.

 

  • For Chocolate Lovers and Dessert Lovers: The Crave Brothers Mascarpone Pie Kit makes it simple to create a holiday dessert for chocolate lovers and cheese lovers alike. The kit includes one Oreo Pie Crust, one bag of Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate (12 ounces), and 2 containers of Mascarpone Cheese (1 pound), plus a recipe card. Inspired by this pie recipe, Crave Brothers Chocolate Mascarpone Pie Filling won First Place at the 2019 American Cheese Society Competition and was one of the top 20 cheeses overall. The Crave Brothers Mascarpone Caramel Sauce with Candied Pecans Gift Box is another sweet gift that easily takes holiday desserts—including cheesecake—to the next level.

 

  • For Fans of Simplicity: Opening a container of Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella means you’re just one step away from creating memorable appetizers, salads and pasta dishes. In fact, the marinade itself can be brushed on crusty bread before toasting it in the oven, or it can be drizzled onto antipasto platters. Marinated Ciliegine (cherry size) Fresh Mozzarella is a Crave Brothers specialty, marinated in a signature blend of olive oil and canola oil, with a custom mix of herbs and spices that complement many menu ideas. For instance, the combination of cherry tomatoes, specialty olives and Marinated Fresh Mozzarella is a winning one for creating simple appetizer plates. Make no mistake: Crave Brothers Marinated Fresh Mozzarella is a standout Wisconsin cheese, and a winner in its own right. It was even named the Grand Champion at the 2019 Dodge County Fair Cheese Judging, taking home First Place/Blue Ribbon honors in the Flavored Cheese Category and a Special Merit Award.

 

  • For Environmentally Aware Consumers: Not only is the Holiday Gift Box filled with award-winning artisanal cheeses, each one is made with milk produced by cows from the Crave family’s own dairy herd, and is overseen by licensed cheese maker George Crave. Knowing that sustainability is a priority at the family’s farmstead cheese-making facility adds to the allure of Crave Brothers selections such as Farmer’s Rope String Cheese. The handmade deli string cheese is ideal for melting onto pizzas or appetizers, and upholds the Wisconsin Cheese tradition in fine fashion. It has received more than 30 awards.
