Marble cheeses are a combination of Colby and Monterey Jack or white and orange Cheddar curds. These cheeses vary in textures and can be either creamy or firm.

Colby Jack: Colby Jack or Cojack is a classic American combination of Colby and Monterey Jack cheese. The taste of Colby Jack varies from mild and smooth, to lightly sweet, to sharp and tangy. Due to its good melting capabilities this cheese is very popular with Mexican dishes.

Marble Cheddar: Marble Cheddar is a variant of typical English Cheddar produced by blending white and orange cheddars. Similar to traditional cheddar it has a very rich taste and smooth, buttery texture. The cheese can be enjoyed in quiches, omelets or melted over baked dishes and vegetables.
