Colby-Jack, or Cojack, is a cheese produced from a mixture of Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses. It is generally sold in a full-moon or a half-moon shape when it is still young and mild in flavor.[1] The cheese has a semi-hard texture. The flavor of Colby-Jack is mild to mellow.[2]


Colby-Jack has a shiny orange and white marbled look to it.[3] It is a semi-hard cheese with a softness comparable to that of Mozzarella.[citation needed]


Colby-Jack, usually sold young, gains its characterization from its ratios of Colby and Monterey Jack.
