PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis., Oct. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- While Culver's guests can enjoy the warm, buttery crunch that gives way to the gooey, cheesy center of a freshly made Wisconsin Cheese Curd any day, there's one day when they're encouraged to really celebrate one of the most popular items on Culver's menu: National Cheese Curd Day.
All of Culver's Wisconsin Cheese Curds come from a single family-owned dairy in Stanley, Wisconsin, where they are made with the freshest, unaged yellow and white cheddar cheese. The Cheese Curds are fried to a buttery, golden crunch in the restaurants, only after being ordered.
"The Dairy State is our home, so it's no surprise that we at Culver's are passionate about serving delicious Cheese Curds," said Julie Fussner, vice president of marketing for Culver's. "As we've expanded across 25 states, it's been amazing to see that so many of our guests love Wisconsin Cheese Curds just as much as we do."
Culver's sold over 28 million orders of Wisconsin Cheese Curds in 2018, and guests' love for Cheese Curds even inspired the launch of Curdis, Culver's Cheese Curd mascot. To celebrate National Cheese Curd Day this year, Culver's is sharing some of its favorite messages from Cheese Curd-loving guests:
"Culver's knows cheese curds are the way to my heart." – @allieson_rose
"Few things are as simultaneously devastating and satisfying as eating your last cheese curd." – @TaraRushmer
"If it involves sunsets and Culver's cheese curds, count me in." – @KelsieCumber
"I have zero self control when it comes to Culver's cheese curds." – @macylan78
"News Director: Please bring a cultural dish to share for our potluck that represents your heritage. Me, a Wisconsinite: Brings Culver's cheese curds." – @MattFosterWNKY
To make National Cheese Curd Day even more special, Culver's is giving away a year of free Wisconsin Cheese Curds during its Curdis Is in a Crunch Sweepstakes. In addition to the grand prize, Curdis swag — sweatshirts, socks and travel mugs — will be given out as daily prizes. The sweepstakes runs through Oct. 31, and guests can enter at culvers.com/curdcrunch.
