Waterloo, Wisconsin: Jimbo the Big Mouse (Gone)

A large cartoony mouse holding an equally large wedge of cheese stands outside a store that claimed to be the "Cheese Cutout Capital of the World."

Jim's Cheese Pantry

Jim's Cheese Pantry. East edge of town, on the south side of Hwy 19/Portland Rd. There's a white church next to the bland-looking cheese store; the mouse stands right next to the building.
July 2019: Closed

Store is closed, mouse is gone, vacation is ruined, summer is dead to me.

Mouse with Cheese.

Jimbo the Big Mouse

There is a large fiberglass mouse named Jimbo outside Jim's Cheese. Inside you can sample cheese or buy different cheese hats. It is a fun place to be.

Jim's Cheese calls itself the Cheese Cutout Capital of the World. Get your cheeses cut into bite-size shapes of cows, Green Bay Packers, the state of Wisconsin, etc.
