Wisconsin-based snack company Cow Candy is bringing back the ‘90s in the form of string cheese with the launch of its newest products, and they don’t just feature your favorite throwback cartoons — they also come in natural, fruity flavors.

The My Little Pony-inspired Pinkie Pie Strawberry Jack cheese and Transformers’ Optimus Prime-inspired Fruit Punch Jack cheese are both “minimally sweet,” according to the company website. There is also a pack of Monterey Jack cheese infused with honey.

The string cheese packs are also available in two different variety packs: one including Fruit Punch Jack and Grape Jack cheese, and another with Strawberry Jack and Orange Jack cheese.

According to the company, its string cheese products are made with “only natural ingredients and colors from natural sources.” Each product contains 1 to 2 grams of sugar per serving, 4 to 5 grams of protein, and 15 percent daily value of calcium.


The string cheese comes in packs of 8 and is available online for $6 each.
