WSU Connection

Our Washington State Univerisy Connection

Our WSU Connection is huge.
I have been the WSU Creamery Cheese Production Supervisor for ten years. Ferdinand’s assistant manager (Cougar graduate) and I developed the very first Ghost Pepper Cheese snack at the Creamery, a version of which is sold there to this day. This cheese is 1 1/2 Ghost Hot.

People have asked me, "Is there a conflict of interest in this situation?' I say, “Not at all. I’m very interested in both of them”. Plus, it is a WSU primary mission to expand private enterprise. It’s also fun for me to think that WSU is our biggest competition.

Johnny P, creator of “Ghost Pepper Cheese Bites”™ and the production company, Northwest Cheesecrafters. We are located in Palouse, Washington, USA.

I am also the head cheesemaker for the WSU Creamery, makers of famous Cougar Gold. That’s my day job and I like it a lot. The Creamery was the inspiration for Northwest Cheesecrafters.

Have fun sampling our cheese and tell your friends.

Please send us recipes, pictures of your experiences, and testimonials. We will appreciate it.

Big thanks from Sharon Rose and Johnny P.
