Trader Joe's Fans Can't Stop Talking About This Spicy New Irish Cheddar

There's only one place you should be going when you're grocery shopping for a charcuterie spread and that's Trader Joe's. The supermarket has a plethora of options when it comes to charcuterie and picnic finger foods such as fresh meats, crackers, olives, nuts, wine, and cheeses from all over the world. According to the Instagram account @traderjoeslist, there's a new product in town and it's been given the star treatment. Drumroll please: it's Irish cheddar cheese with chili peppers!

Trader Joe's recently announced their pick for July's Spotlight Cheese: the sharp, fiery child of the well-known dairy brand Kerrygold. This unique Irish cheddar is a rich and creamy balance between sharp and spicy, and contains "flakes of fiery red Chili Peppers." Instagrammer Trader Joe's List posted a photo of the new product, including the retail price, which at $7.99 per pound is relatively average compared to their other specialty cheeses.

Based on the excited cheers in the comments, we're thinking this cheese is going to be worth the hype.

Cheese lovers are freaking out over this new sharp, chili pepper-filled cheese at Trader Joe's. One commenter on @traderjoeslist's Instagram post wrote, "The Irish cheddar is one of my favorite cheeses! Now it's got some spice to it?! Count me in." What a mood.

Looking for cheesy inspiration? Leave it to Trader Joe's patrons to come up with the most scrumptious food combinations. After @traderjoeslist shared a photo of TJ's new Spotlight Cheese, followers immediately took to the comments sharing how they plan to enjoy Kerrygold's spicy new Irish cheddar. A popular response among the group was to pair the cheese with the grocery chain's variety of fresh cured meats, such as prosciutto. Others threw out suggestions like grilled cheese, cheese fries, sandwiches, and quesadillas. One person went a step further, suggesting that people should shave and melt the cheese on toasted garlic bread. Now we're talking!

If you're not the biggest fan of spicy foods, it might still be worth trying — one customer as well as @traderjoeslist assured it's not as spicy as the chili peppers might make it seem.
