As good as it can get, love it
By Charles Blank

This cheese has a good fire, but you can still savor the taste of the Pepper Monterey Jack cheese flavor. I like taking the cheese and slicing it and put it on tortillas and microwave them than roll the tortillas, it is great. I just love this cheese and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys hot peppers and very good cheese. Charles Blank dragon1010

Very Good Cheese and very HOT!
By Michael D Casida Sr

I love hot peppers and the Ghost Pepper Monterey Jack cheese is HOT! Careful when you take a sample bite. Delicious!

By Robin D. Roberts

Almost "Hiccup" hot! Wow, I love it! A little softer than I prefer but you'll remember it for awhile.

This is hot
By james trent

This cheese is quite hot. The texture is not what I was hoping for but if you are looking for something different try this one.

By Deb

Good and it!

Makes great cheese dip
By Sharon Ellis

My husband melts this with white American for some great cheese dip. He adds just a little bit of milk and some times a little bit of cream cheese to make it creamy. Family and friends love it.
