5 New Products To Try This Holiday Season

These products are some of the latest to hit grocery store shelves and online shops, and you’ll want to keep them on hand for holiday entertaining and personal comfort snacking.

The latest wheel from Marin French Cheese Co., this washed-rind, triple crème cheese is begging to be the centerpiece at holiday gatherings. Golden Gate is named fondly after the Golden Gate Bridge, a nod to the home state of the iconic creamery, and a reflection of its naturally orange-hued rind. Enjoy its creamy texture and earthy, umami flavor with a crusty baguette and glass of California red by the fireside.



It’s time to elevate your dips, tacos, and baked potatoes. Vermont Creamery’s brand-new sour cream is a category game-changer. It’s 22-percent milk fat (compared with 18 to 20 percent in others), giving it a luxurious mouthfeel and a particularly rich and tangy flavor. In addition to plain, it comes in two first-of-their-kind flavors: Cilantro and Lime, and Fire Roasted Onion and Chive, ready to dollop on your homemade dishes, experiment with in recipes, or just enjoy straight-up.



Add something sweet to your holiday cheese plate with these soft and decadent ChocoDates imported by Forever Cheese from Valencia, Spain. Each box is filled with Deglet Noor dates that are hand-dipped in rich dark chocolate, for a combination that’s sweet and reminiscent of a high-quality candy bar. Take it to the next level with a triple crème or soft blue cheese for the perfect end to your meal.


Spice up your next cheese board with PRiMO’s latest artisan condiment: Roasted Hatch Chile+ Tequila Signature Preserve. This sweet and smoky spread combines the flavors of roasted green and red Hatch chiles with boozy Mexican tequila for a piquant bite that goes just as well with a salty cheese as it does with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. (Trust us.)



You wanna be on top? Tyra Banks is joining the ice cream scene with her new line of Smize Cream—seven flavors of custard-style ice cream, each with an edible surprise hidden at the bottom of every cup. Digging for that sprinkle-covered cookie dough truffle represents the drive and ambition of Tyra’s accompanying mentorship program, the SMiZE Cream Goalz & Dreamz Factory, founded to help support young and ambitious dreamers.
