string cheese


A pasta filata cheese (such as mozzarella) that has been stretched into a long, thin strand, then stacked in switchback fashion before being packaged. Also called Syrian or Armenian string cheese, this popular edible is mild flavored and chewy. Kids young and old love to pull off the strings and eat it out of hand. See also cheese.
