Just because you love two things more than anything else in this world, that doesn't mean they should ever meet. In fact, in most cases, they shouldn't. Take, for example, pasta and your new white sweater. Or dogs and chocolate. Or, um, cheese and pumpkin spice.
No matter how fanatical you are about pumpkin spice (we're talking going to get the first latte of the season in August), we're betting you are not going to like this new mash-up.
Costco stores in Canada are now selling pumpkin spice cheese (for basically $16 per pound!). Made by Beemster Cheese, it's apparently a soft, semi-ripened cheese that's "savory, rich, and aromatic."
The reviews on Instagram seem to be a mix of good and bad. Lots of people flat out said, "no" and that was it. "I tried it, purely in the interest of science. It's disgusting," one commenter said, while another added, "My friend was texting me about this yesterday. She actually says it's good. Now I'm curious!" Others (most others, actually) said they were too scared to try it.
Look, we're all for interesting cheeses. (Aldi makes a pepperoni marinara cheese that we can't get enough of.) And we love pumpkin spice-flavored things as much as the next millennial — especially those spiced pumpkin madeleines at Trader Joe's — but we agree with most of those Instagram commenters: no.
