Cantal Cheese

April 10, 2017 in Category: What's New

Are you a Francophile? Have you always wanted to be a Francophile? Do you want to enjoy French things but not be considered a Francophile? Or, do you simply like cheese? (Which makes you a turophile...) If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Trader Joe’s Cantal Cheese, our Spotlight Cheese for the month of April, is just the cheese for you. Cantal Cheese hails from the Auvergne region of France, an area well known for its extinct volcanos.

Espresso Mélange Cheddar Cheese

April 06, 2017 in Category: What's New

While this is a Cheddar cheese, it’s not simply a Cheddar cheese, strictly speaking. It’s made with a Cheddar base, but then our supplier incorporates both Cheddar and Gruyere cheese cultures. This mélange gives the cheese finishing flavors reminiscent of Gruyere—and a creaminess not typically found in Cheddars. On top of this enticing blend, espresso coffee grounds have been added to the cheese. They create a visible marbling and...

Sliced New Zealand Organic Cheddar

April 02, 2017 in Category: What's New

The lush, green pastures of New Zealand’s organic dairy farms provide the jumping off point for our Sliced New Zealand Organic Cheddar. The milk used to produce this distinctive cheese comes from cows raised on family owned dairies and treated to a diet of the abundant organic clover and grasses that blanket the pastures of New Zealand’s dairy lands. Moderate temperatures (60-75ºF), flowing mountain streams, and abundant rainfall mean that there is ample pasture for grazing year round. Because of their diet, the cows produce incredibly rich and flavorful milk, and that milk, in turn, produces...

Fior Delle Alpi

March 14, 2017 in Category: What's New

The Swiss Alps are famous for crisp mountain air, high peaks, and skiing. Each year, people from around the world flock to the Alps for world-class winter skiing. From these same Swiss Alps comes Trader Joe’s Fior Delle Alpi cheese—and yes, it’s as excellent as the skiing! Fior Delle Alpi translates to “Flower of the Alps,” a name fitting for our March spotlight cheese. Hidden in a black rind, this raw milk cheese is made by hand at a small mountain dairy. The cows are free to roam and graze on mountainsides covered in grasses and wild herbs, and these herbs are vital to the intense...
