Source for cheddar cheese powder?

  1. Best I've found is from Cabot Cheese. Haven't seen it outside their factory store in VT, but you can definitely mail order it:

      I just picked some up while I was in Vermont. It's good stuff.

      They used to sell a version at Williams Sonoma.

      1. re: finlero

        I've bought that at a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Portsmouth, NH, so it must be more widely available than that.

        It's fantastic stuff, regardless. Amazing on popcorn.

          Thanks. I will look for it. I tried making some cheddar popcorn today with butter, dry mustard, cayenne, a hint of turmeric and grated cheddar. It was very good but cheddar powder would be much better.

          1. I bought some from Spices Etc last year. I seem to recall they had other cheese types too.

            We used it all on popcorn I think! That and vinegar powder for salt-n-vinegar popcorn. :) But, even better on popcorn was Cheddar Bacon salt!

            I don't remember seeing cheddar powder at Penzey's though.

              1. Cabot Cheddar Shake is the gold standard. Word to the wise: Keep the canister well sealed in a plastic bag once seasonal humidity begins to rise, because it's very hydroscopic and it doesn't recover well from moisture.

                1. has it, and lots of other possibilities for popcorn, like sour cream&chive powder.
