Your Two Favorite Snacks Had a Baby and Now Life Is Complete
Hallelujah! We are about to enter snacking heaven. Grocery store chain Fresh Market is launching guacamole cheese, the ingenious marriage of two of our all-time favorite snack foods. The green Gouda arrives in stores just in time for Cinco De Mayo, but honestly we think guacamole cheese deserves a year-round spot in your refrigerator.
It’s going for $24.99 per pound, which is definitely on the pricey side, but consider the cost of cheese and guacamole separately, and the sticker shock should subside, at least a little.
So how to make the most of this brilliant novelty item? While it’s totally possible to slice up Fresh Market’s guacamole cheese and enjoy it on crackers or corn chips, why not get more creative? Use it as a topping for Mexican-inspired nachos, or add it to a traditional queso recipe to spice things up a little. Don’t feel limited by melting, however. Try shredding it on top of enchiladas or tacos, or any dish that could benefit from a sprinkling of cheese. Quesadillas! Mexican corn salad! Carnitas! They would all taste so much better with guacamole cheese on top.
