As far as we’re concerned, cheese is one of the very best foods out there — and for good reason. There are plenty of types to choose from, you can put it on everything (Pasta! Protein! Veggies!), and we can’t resist an ooey, gooey cheese pull. But perhaps the cherry on top of a savory cheese sundae is that it cheese gets better with age.

Well, sometimes. It depends on how you store it.

There’s a reason why those fancy, shmancy stores wrap their wedges in cheese bags or paper. Plastic wrap might the be easiest way to store your mozzarella or muenster, but it’s actually suffocating your cheese. And after a few days, that precious cheese you were so excited to devour can take on the taste of plastic. Um, no thank you.

Give your your wedges the TLC they deserve with Formaticum’s Cheese Storage Bags.

At first glance, they look like generic paper bags. You know, they one you’d use to pack your kids’ lunch or store leftovers. However, they’re made with a polyethylene and wax-coated paper that Formaticum claims helps regulate the humidity and lets your cheese breathe. Translation? These bags leave your cheese creamy, moist and as delicious as ever.

Anyone who has several types of cheeses in their fridge at any given moment (um, guilty!) knows how important it is your label their wedges. After all, nobody wants to confuse asiago with parmesan. These bags have a dedicated spot for your to name and date each wedge, so you can create a cheese board with only the yummiest, freshest options.

With a 4.5/5 rating on Amazon, 600 positive reviews, and an A on Fakespot, a website that tracks the accuracy of Amazon reviews, these bags are a must for any cheesemonger. Fortunately, they’re also pretty affordable. Right now, you can buy a set of 15 bags for under $10. We’d spare no expense to keep our cheese in pristine condition, but we’ll also happily accept a great deal.
