Cheese puns and endless jealousy

We have the most amazing neighbors on Valencia Street. One of them, Sarah Dvorak, opened Mission Cheese in 2011 and became our very first wholesale customer in June of that year. She served our bars in a chocolate flight along with dried fruits and nuts. The Mission Cheesers now make their own desserts in house and no longer serve our chocolate, but we’re still benefiting from our neighborly relations. Greg loves the “Alotta Burrata” sandwich so much that we hear him asking, “Mission Cheese?” at least once a week.

I really do love our neighbors, but these days I find myself walking past their shop, hanging my head in shame, and sighing. I am endlessly jealous of their sandwich board and their clever cheese puns.

Go your own whey

They’re amazing. Really. And do you know how hard it is to think of a chocolate pun!? In six months, I’ve thought of one. When we got back from Hawaii, I updated our sandwich board to say that our trip was “co-coa-nuts”! Truthfully, I stole the pun from Caitlin. As I struggle, the folks at Mission Cheese  keep coming up with gold. Here are a few more of my favorites:

Come to Cheddar

Let It Brie

Bleeeat It


Thanks, Mission Cheese, for all your creative punning. It actually makes me very happy. If anyone has a good chocolate pun, send it my way. I’d love it.
