Cabot Creamery is proud to announce that it is the exclusive cheese sponsor of the 2012 Grilled Cheese Invitational, which will be held on April 28 at the world famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.

"We're truly excited to be a part of this amazing and zany event that strives to honor a little bit of the chef in all of us," says Candace Karu, Cabot's Favorite Foodie and Lifestyle Commentator, and one of the executive judges for the Grilled Cheese Invitational competition. "April is National Grilled Cheese Month, and being a part of the Grilled Cheese Invitational is a unique opportunity for our farmers to share the Cabot brand with our good friends on the west coast. Food is all about fun, and the GCI takes that fun to a whole new level. We're proud to be involved with the event, and we look forward to sharing our World's Best Cheddar with everyone at the competition."

Indeed, Cabot knows a little bit about competing in the cheese world. The cooperative has won virtually every major award for best tasting cheddar and has captured numerous "World's Best" cheddar titles in national and international competitions including the World Championship Cheese Contest, World Cheese Awards, US Championship Cheese Contest, International Dairy Deli Bakery Association Show and the American Cheese Society.

Cabot also holds the Guinness® World Record for The World's Largest Grilled Cheese Sandwich (November 2000 in Everglades City, FL, weighing 320 lbs.) and The World's Largest Mac & Cheese (September 2010 in New Orleans, LA, weighing 2,469 lbs).
