Idaho, WalMart To Market Cheese

Though Idaho is the nation's third-largest producer of cheese, the Idaho State Department of Agriculture says Idahoans who want to join the “locavore” movement have often had trouble finding Idaho-made cheese to buy. The reason: Most Idaho cheese is sold to food companies that put their own brand on the package and distribute their products nationwide, with no mention of where the cheese originated. Now, however, retail giant Walmart is signing on with the department's “Idaho Preferred” program, selling Idaho-made cheese under an “Idaho Cheese” brand decorated with a blue image of the state's shape and the blue-and-gold Idaho Preferred logo/Betsy Russell, SR.

Question: How much do you like cheese?
