There are some pungent, odiferous cheeses that squeak when you cut it.

They are still tasty when not super fresh, but not as good.  The article is correct as they change quickly (including not being squeaky cheese if you care what your food sounds like).  Non-super fresh curds are sold just about everywhere in Wisconsin and are good sellers, which is evidence that they are still tasty.  If you do not live near a dairy in Wisconsin or parts of Minnesota (and possibly parts of Canada) you are pretty much out of luck in getting fresh cheese curds.  Well, some dairies will overnight you curds, but that is costly.  The best use of non-super fresh curds in my opinion is frying them.  Or if you are sick you can use them for poutine.

I've had cheese curds that aren't fresh that still squeak. Not as loud as a fresh curd, but still squeaks a little. Like when we bring back a few big bags of Shullsburg cheese curds from Costco. By that point they are 3-4 days old and still have a squeak. We freeze them when we get home, and still a slight squeak when we have them later. If you are going to make fried cheese curds, you are better off freezing them first anyway, so don't use super fresh curds. If they aren't frozen, you get more curds that burst open when you fry them. Haven't been back to Wisconsin since before the pandemic, but next time we'll bring back a few pounds of curds and as much Usinger sausages as we can fit in the cooler.

Does this conclusion presume that Midwesterners have refined palates?

You leave my cincinnati chili, Italian beef and Chicago pizza out of this.

Those are hills I'm willing to die on.

I'm surprised you're not already dead from eating Cincinnati chili.

Oh the suicide thought is pretty persistent. But I don't think it was/is the Cinci Chilli, that shiat is happiness. Pretty sure that's bad luck of the genetic drawing.

I don't even go into the Goldstar/skyline/worthmore debates. I'm pretty happy with it all. Though Blueash might reign Supreme 🤔
