Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than all the rest Delicious. We grill them as appetizers and boy do they get your appetite going. We've tried all the other brands and none come close. If they were just a little lower in fat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice smoked cheese flavor I prefer Johnsonville “Better with Cheddar” links, but these are almost as delicious. The cheese is the winner here, smoky and plentiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family loves them. We enjoy the addition of cheese (especially the kids) and enjoy them alone or on a bun with grilled onions and green peppers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dissapointed in the High Sodium All family members noted the highly salty taste. My wife salts all her food and these were way too salty for her. I stocked up based on previous great taste, but now we have several packs that I will not be using.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You've RUINED a ONCE Great sausage. It's said, that All good things must end. If that adage is true... Then this is the end of the Cheddarwurst. Once, it was THE Link of choice for me. I'd noticed that once Your company began to change the shape, that the taste also changed. At one time, no matter HOW it was prepared, the first bite was rewarded with cheddar-y Goodness... Cooked on the grill or in my nuwave oven... resulted in a split casing oozing with cheese. This current pack... barely resulted in cheese flavor... much less "Cheese that FLOWED" not even flecks of cheese? How can You STILL call this "Cheddarwurst"? now... it's just... the worst.
