  1. Damn NPR – I can never listen for any extended period. That anyone could place anything Michael Jackson on Quincy Jones higher than the pop-orgasm that is the song ‘My Sharona’ is a sign of the moribund attitude that has evolved NPR from being hip to being moribund and PC-pathetic.

  2. The squeak you’re looking for is much more present once the curds have reached room temperature. Most cheese is tastiest at room temperature. I’ve never heard of the 12 hour rule. Although, you can always tell cheese curds that have been frozen because they lose some moisture and some springyness. By the way, I do live in Wisconsin if you ever need a long distance cheese fix. Have you ever tried smoked string cheese? It’s pretty good. Lastly, I’m fairly certain that the cheese curds referred to in conjunction with french fries and gravy are deep fried cheese curds. And they are a whole different animal altogether.

  3. My wife has relatives in WI, so we have been up a few times and tasted the curdy goodness. Never heard the 12hour rule either, but c an attest when fresh they do squeak. We don’t have them as readily available here in StL but my kids love to get the fried cheese curds at the A&W or Culvers when we go by there to eat every once in a while.
