Colby-Jack, or Co-jack/Cojack,[1] 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.[2] The cheese has a semi-hard texture. The flavor of Colby-Jack is mild to mellow.[3]

Appearance[edit]

Colby-Jack has a shiny orange and white marbled look to it.[4] It is a semi-hard cheese with a softness comparable to that of Mozzarella.[citation needed]

Character[edit]

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