Looking for an easy yet delicious way to make vegan mac and cheese? Try Teese's creamy cheddar. It is as easy as boiling pasta and mixing in the Teese Creamy Cheddar.  If you like, you could warm the Teese in a sauce pan and add extra spices to liven up your mac and Teese experience.
We have a wide selection of local products including a new addition from Brazos Valley Cheese Company.  We are now carrying their Brazos Valley Select Brie. What makes this Brie so special is that it is topped with a Mustang grape leaf and sorghum syrup is lathered on top. The sorghum that is used is grown and pressed right there on the premises. Absolutely amazing!
