13 Food Brands Anyone From Wisconsin Will Recognize
What can we say, we love our cheese, beer and sausage.
There’s no denying that Wisconsinites love their Spotted Cow. New Glarus holds the 16th spot among the country’s top 50 craft brewing companies (based on sales volume)—and it’s only sold in Wisconsin! We’ll drink to that.
No matter where you are in the state, you’re never too far from a Culver’s. Known for their creamy custard and savory butterburgers, this chain takes fast food to a whole new level.
Of course you were going to find a cheese brand on this list. Though its products are sold nationally, Sargento started in Plymouth, Wisconsin—and it still calls the small town home.
No Wisconsin summer is complete without a fresh-from-the-grill brat. (Here’s how to grill one like a true Wisconsinite). And the links from Johnsonville can’t be beat.
“Better Bread. Better Subs.” That’s the motto of Cousins—a local sandwich shop with locations all over the state. The brand is known for their fresh, quality ingredients.
Brewed primarily in Chippewa Falls, Leinenkugel’s is a household name in Wisconsin. They’re best known for their Summer Shandy—a refreshing blend of Weiss beer and lemonade.
Here in Wisconsin, we know what a good kringle tastes like. (It is our state’s official pastry, after all). And O&H Danish Bakery in Racine, Wisconsin makes the best one around.
This historic brand has been making sausages in Milwaukee since 1880. And they still use the original family recipes!
Known for their fun flavors, you can find Cedar Crest ice cream in grocery stores and ice cream parlors across the state. Save me a scoop of Lady Bug, please!
Wisconsinites love to shop the pig. The chain is a popular choice for groceries and friendly service.
Sprecher sells many delicious drinks, but the brand is famous for its root beer. For a true taste of Wisconsin, make a root beer float with Sprecher soda and Cedar Crest ice cream. Yum!
We know this isn’t technically a brand—but we just have to include Door County cherries. The bright, tart fruit is delicious in everything from cherry pie to brandy.
Tart cherries are good for your health, too. Here’s why.
Yes, the national spice brand you know and love is based in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. And some of your favorite spice blends—like Fox Point Seasoning and Brady Street Cheese Sprinkle—are named after real places in the Dairy State.
