Gosh I feel like the time is just flying by—and so are the cheeses! We’ve had so many new fun and exciting items coming into our stores that it’s hard to keep up.
This month for our Cheese of the Month, we went for something a little bit different. While a lot of people are familiar with savory and classic cheeses, there is a whole other world out there full of unique flavors and more dessert-like cheeses. This month we’re giving you the best of both worlds: Red Apple’s Coffee Gouda.
Now I know what you’re thinking, “Coffee and cheese?!” to which I would reply, “Of course coffee and cheese!” I’ve had my fair share of coffee-infused creations and I’ve got to tell you, it can really be quite a delicious pairing, and this Coffee Gouda is no exception. Like most of Red Apple’s cheeses, this gouda is rich and creamy but features caramel-brown marbling throughout it from the addition of the coffee. It really does taste reminiscent of a good ol’ cup of joe with a hint of mocha flavor.
One of the reasons I love this cheese is its versatility. Because its flavor has just that hint of chocolatey-coffee goodness yet still remains savory, it’s perfect on a cheese plate as an appetizer along with some other assortments, but it is also amazing on a dessert platter. Some slices of Coffee Gouda alongside your hot cappuccino and some honey roasted nuts? Yes, please!
Like always when we feature a cheese, we’re offering this Wisconsin creation at an incredible price. Come in and try a taste of this new Cheese of the Month and take home a piece for just $3.99 !
