Crema Kasa is an incredibly rich and flavorful triple-cream cheese due to the addition of pure buttermilk. While the triple cream name suggests that you’re eating three times the fat content, this isn’t the case, Most triple creams range between 20 and 35% fat content.

Made from cow milk its flavor is buttery and piquant, and it melts in your mouth. Super rich and without the bloomy rind typically associated with triple cream cheese. Easily cut into pieces or served whole at room temperature, it’s perfect for spreading on warm, crusty bread. Creama Kasa took a 3rd Place ribbon at both the 2012 and 2013 Wisconsin State Fair.
