Cheese curds are best experienced deep fried. The Minnesota State Fair 
is noted for cheese curds, and quite few restaurants do them in addition 
to or instead of mozzarella sticks (oh, deep fried cheese heaven).

According to the Culver's[0] web site's nutritional information 
calculator[1], one 191g (no more, no less) serving of cheese curds 
contains 125% (25g) of your saturated fat intake for the day. How handy.

Hungry now.
