WSU Ships 50,000 Boxes Of Cougar Cheese To Fill Holiday Orders

PULLMAN, Wash. – This holiday season, more than 50,000 boxes will roll out of a warehouse on the outskirts of the Washington State University Pullman campus. Inside these boxes is a cheese-lovers delight – Cougar Cheese, including the favorite Cougar Gold and seven other flavors.

The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas keeps employees of the WSU Creamery busy.

"This is like the North Pole this time of year," said Russ Salvadalena, creamery manager. "We've got a ton of people who are doing their best to make sure that everybody receives their cheese in a timely fashion."

From Internet orders to those received over the phone at a constantly buzzing call center, Cougar Cheese is being requested and shipped to locations across the world. While most of the orders are for the Pacific Northwest, Salvadalena said the creamery ships across the United States and to APO (Army post office) addresses as well.

The popularity of Cougar Cheese means more than 250,000 cans are produced each year. In September, more than 400,000 cans sat aging in 45 degrees of climate controlled space in the creamery warehouse.

The novelty of "cheese in a can" might explain some of the popularity, Salvadalena said. But mostly, it's the flavor.

"A lot of times, people will send it as gifts," he said. But the recipients tend to get hooked: "The people who receive the gift will expect it every year after then, so be careful!"
