Wake up taste buds!
By Heidi Farrand

We like spicy and hot so I ordered this cheese hoping it would be both, what a surprise! Hot it is but not so that you can t taste the other flavors in the cheese. We love it with crackers or crusty French bread. I plan on adding some some to a beer cheese fondue!

Good cheese

Some of the hottest on the market
By Clyde McClurd

Order for the heat and share with my friends. Some can't eat because of the heat. I order three at a time. Keep selling the item

Hot spicy cheese
By Joan Relph

Way too hot for our midwest palate!

By Clyde McClurd

I order the cheese since it is the hottest I have found. I do share small pieces with people so that they won't spit it out. I have couple of friends that I provide a section of the cheese at no cost to them. I also provide a paper towel for the wimps. Great HOT AND SPICY CHEESE. Keep in stock
