TASTE CHEESE LIKE A PRO
In a few easy steps, you can taste cheese like a professional cheese judge.
Inhale and take a good whiff. Cheddars have a range of aromas, but the key is balance. No one aroma should overpower the other.
Give the cheddar a good once-over. The appearance should be uniform and smooth.
Pass a knife through the cheddar. Styles range from smooth to dry, and generally, a smoother cheddar is easier to slice.
Pinch between your thumb and index finder. Younger cheese will be a bit springy while an aged cheese can be crumbly.
Finally, take a bite—and enjoy it slowly. You're looking for balanced taste and mouth feel.

PINEAPPLE, PISTACHIO & HONEY WITH SHARP CHEDDAR
Honey and pistachio highlight the buttery nuttiness of Cracker Barrel’s Sharp Cheddar, while pineapple provides a lively contrast that adds brightness to this unexpected combination. Chardonnay pairs perfectly with this mix of flavors.

STRAWBERRY & BASIL WITH VERMONT WHITE CHEDDAR
The classic flavor combination of strawberries, balsamic vinegar, and basil is heightened by Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar.
