ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Fresh cheese curds are back at the Kalona Creamery after four long years, and what better way to celebrate than having an all-day cheese curd launch party at the creamery.

On Aug. 11, people were invited to a family-friendly event at the creamery, where they tried cheese curd samples, took pictures with Lona the Cow, participated in a cheese curd eating contest and, of course, buy bags of fresh cheese curds.

“We had more than 600 people attend the event which was great,” said marketing manager Sara Rissi. “We put out the cheese curds around 11 a.m., and we were sold out by 1:30 p.m., which was a total of 629 12-ounce bags.”

During the event, nine people participated in the cheese curd eating contest to see how fast a person could eat a 12-ounce bag of cheese curds.

The winner of the male category was Michael Alnas with a time of 3 minutes 51 seconds. The winner of the female category was Marci Chou with a time of 6 minutes 18 seconds. The winner of the kids category, 15 and under, was Reece Walter with a time of 11 minutes 20 seconds.
