    hey cheese punim — is sugar river cheese still in business. when i look for them, your name POPS up.

    • No, Sugar River Cheese is no longer in business. (Sorry, by the way, for this extremely tardy reply!) Sugar River Cheese sold the cheeses to Natural and Kosher. They are under Sincerely, Brigitte. They come in long sticks now vs. square shapes. Sincerely, Brigitte sells the most popular of Sugar River, plus has added a few flavors as well.
