Longhorn

Longhorn is a style of American Colby cheese defined by its round, long, orange cylindrical shape. When cut for packaging it resembles a moon or shalf moon. It is made from cow’s milk rather than sheep’s or goat’s milk. The flavor can be anything from mild to sharp but it is usually a Colby or Jack cheese. Although, all Longhorn cheeses are shaped and packaged the same way, the texture and aging time may vary depending on the cheese type.  

The taste and texture of Longhorn is similar to Cheddar but more elastic, springy with a sweet and mild flavor. It is good as a melting cheese.
