On our tour of the island, we stopped here to sample some cheese. It was absolutely the best cheese I have tasted. They have 12 different flavors of Gouda. All we tasted were excellent. Didn't know that cheese doesn't need refrigerated until it is opened....More

Thank you Glenda! Glad you enjoyed all our cheeses that were open! But we have about 40 different Dutch Gouda's, a bit more to choose from than 12 :) Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your purchased original Dutch Gouda at home!

We stopped at this store 3 different times this trip. Their Gouda cheeses and gifts are fantastic. The cheese makes great gifts and can be taken back as long as sealed.
