One man is facing criminal charges in New Jersey after detectives found a truck he was driving with roughly $200,000 worth of stolen Muenster cheese from Wisconsin.

History's greatest Muenster, indeed.

If you all only knew. My buddy from high school's an over the road trucker. He drives to California and Washington state, picks up loads of counterfeit west coast cheese curd, drives it back to Wisconsin where it sits in a warehouse for a few days then gets packed up and labeled as Wisconsin Cheese. Then it goes to delivery at Wal-Mart.

You hillbillies are buying west coast liberal cheese thinking its from the Heartland in Wisconsin.

What a great country.

And when he was arrested, he said: "But I've got a lot of  mouse  to feed!"

I don't understand the mechanic's of this.  To whom exactly was he going to sell the stolen cheese.  TFA just said east coast retailers.

Was he going to sell it out the back of the truck to independent groceries or was he selling larger quantities to unscrupulous wholesalers?  I can't imagine a large retail chain like Stop and Shop or Pathmark knowingly purchasing a truckload of stolen cheese.

Or am I just being naive?

Little help from any large scale food thieves.

Good way to tell if cheese is actually from Wisconsin or not is, never mind the little sticker. Look around on the packaging for a city. I've seen Wisconsin Cheese stickers go on cheese that's actually from Missouri.

Doesn't mean the cheese is automatically any good, though. There is cheese from Wisconsin that is terrible. Crystal Farms, for instance. Made in Lake Mills. Shiatty cheese. Steer clear.

Not if he just walked up and asked a random person at a random store, but he probably knows someone in charge of purchasing who would buy from him, fudge the records, and keep the difference.  Just guessing.  It's all who you know.

Ooh. Another good way to look.

The Wisconsin Cheese website. They have a directory of artisanal cheesemakers. You can search it by cheese type and everything.

Please. You can't expect some one from New Jersey to recognize the shape of Wisconsin. All the maps on the east coast only have about 15 states on them and in the middle it says "terra incognito - here be rednecks"

That's why when I do get curds, I go to one of the local outlet stores for some of the various local dairies, or cheese factories. I can name at least 3 or 4 that I'm less than an hours drive from.

I used Heartland because thats how the red staters in that wide swath of midwest market things to themselves. Its omnipresent. From Indiana to Nebraska and mid-south to Minnesota, you got yourselves one big ol spot on the map that in marketing is called the Heartland. Many commercials usually with evangelical tones, flying flags etc, all used to use it. In the 1980s it took over for "Prairie" as the default term for all sorts of services and businesses from the region.

Its not always consistent since Heartland Payment Systems is based in Atlanta, and there's a Heartland tv show on in Canada, but for the most part if you see the local dealership or bank or auto parts store called Heartland, its gonna be in the middle of the US north of about Tennessee/Kentucky and somewhere between Ohio and Eastern Colorado.

I started to read this story to my wife, who is a cheesehead (born and bred). It went rapidly downhill from the start.

The Vince Lombardi Plaza? Muenster stolen by some FIB? So she asks me whose cheese was stolen, and she said something about the Amish cheese near her hometown of Cashton, WI. Something like Old Country Cheese.

This is a hometown story about hometown Muenster for her. :) Probably the biggest thing to happen in the Cashton area since 1995.
