Dutch cheese company Daily Dairy has created a monster.
The Amanti Guacamole Cheese is now available for the first time in the United States at The Fresh Market, a grocery chain based out of North Carolina. The store is debuting the divisive cheese product just in time for celebratory Cinco de Mayo spreads.
The green cheese is part of Daily Dairy’s Amanti line, featuring cheeses made with Amanti cow’s milk infused with a variety of herbs, spices, and sauces. According to Fresh Market dietician Meghan Flynn, the Guacamole Cheese is a creamy, Gouda-style, hard cheese blended with real avocados, lime juice, tomato, garlic, onion, and chili.
Apparently, the cheese is recommended to be melted over nachos or into a queso dip. It also functions well on its own paired with sliced crackers. The avocado puree is added right before the Daily Dairy cheesemakers form the cheese curd into its signature shape in order to maintain maximum freshness.
