Av and I got a Maroon Pack of cheeses from MSU this week!
Inside is a wheel of vallagret, an edam "cannon ball", a cheddar block, and a stone crock of cheddar spread. We tried a little tiny bit of each of the cheeses. The edam is a little nutty, the cheddar is a really nice cheddar, the vallagret (which I've never had before) tastes like a cousin of Swiss, and the cheddar spread makes a nice meltable dip. They were all really good.
Besides Mississippi State making cheese, they also sell ice cream, muscadine juice, peanuts, and peanut butter. I know Clemson makes a blue cheese...I wonder what other schools make products like these...
