Alexander Miller, a 22-year-old actor in New York City, samples cheddars in the Daily News taste test of New York and Wisconsin varieties.
As the New York Giants prepare to face the Packers in the playoffs Sunday, The Daily News staged a showdown between the two states’ cheddars in a blind taste test in Times Square Tuesday.
“New York’s better at everything,” declared Gina Guglielmo, 18, a college student from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.
She was confident she would prefer the New York cheddar. But like many tasters, she was a bit overwhelmed by the New York cheddar’s notorious sharp bite.
Wisconsin, which produces more cheese than any other state, is known for its milder cheddars.
“I don’t really like it,” Guglielmo said as she chewed a New York cheddar made by McCadam. “It tastes extremely cheddary. It tastes very strong.”
