Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth or a salty craving, we’ve got you covered with our picks for this year’s hottest cheese pairing.
Mount Kisco, NY
Chocolate and cheese are old friends. But to keep things from getting stale, mix it up with an unlikely flavor, like Mast’s Olive Oil Chocolate bar.
BEE RAW HONEY
If you haven’t tried this raw honey drizzled over fresh chèvre, put down the magazine and do so immediately. Plus, Bee Raw’s commitment to sustainable practices means you feel even better buying their product.
BITTERS LAB BITTERS
Salt Lake City, Utah
Bitters: They’re not just for cocktails. Add some spice to your sparkling water, coffee, or even ice cream with a unique flavor like Blueberry Cardamom.
EFFIE’S HOMEMADE CRACKERS
Hyde Park, Mass.
Don’t let the “cracker” fool you—these little biscuits are the perfect midmorning indulgence for your coffee break…or topped with blue cheese and a caramel drizzle for dessert.
LUSH GOURMET FOODS NUTS
Grand Rapids, Mich.
These aren’t the bar nuts you snacked on during last weekend’s football game. Thoughtfully sourced ingredients and creative flavor combos ensure that all Lush Gourmet nuts make a delightfully munchable foil to a gooey cheese.
Lake Oswego, Ore.
Sourced from local Oregon producers, Kelly’s Habanero Pepper Jelly is the perfect blend of heat and sweet. Spread it over a mild cheese to really savor that punch.
