After having started the Original Herkimer County Cheese Company in 1949, Sheldon and Norma Basloe developed many unique Specialty Cheeses. They wanted to create a mild, spreadable, flavorful cheddar product to be used as a spread and as an ingredient to enhance the flavor of your favorite recipe. After many years of working on a recipe and taking the prototypes home at night to have their four children sample in Mrs B’s home cooking, they developed a spreadable Cheddar product that had just the right flavor, consistency and versatility - and CHUTTER® was born. The Basloes made arrangements with a large franchise group that had a number of Specialty Foods stores to start merchandising this new product. By combining the exceptional creativity of the stores’ personnel with the unlimited versatility of CHUTTER®, sales, uses and demand for CHUTTER® exploded! The loyal following for CHUTTER® & CHUTTER® recipes has continued for many years. CHUTTER®... The Ultimate Cheese Experience™.
