Best Vanilla

Vanilla Cardona Goat’s Milk Cheese

We bought this Trader Joe’s cheese kind of as a joke. Vanilla cheese does not sound good in general. A block of hard, cheddar-like cheese that’s vanilla flavored sounds extra bad. Much to my surprise, this Trader Joe’s sweet cheese is delicious. As I always say: I love to be wrong! I’m thrilled this sweet cheese is actually good. This would be wonderful on a cheese board with some tart cherry jam and roasted pecans. Serve this at your next dinner party and your guests will certainly be impressed.

Best with Fruit

Cranberry Chevre Goat Cheese

Steer clear of the other fruity cheeses at Trader Joe’s. The only one worth purchasing is the cranberry chevre goat cheese. The cranberries are the perfect balance of sweet and tart. The goat cheese is so creamy and rich. The combination of the two flavors is heaven in your mouth. Heaven, I say! I think this sweet cheese from Trader Joe’s would please even the biggest sweet cheese skeptic.

Best of the Best

Chevre with Honey

This Trader Joe’s goat cheese lightly sweetened with honey is perfection. It has just the right amount of sweetness for a sweet cheese. You could put this on a cheese board or use it as the filling in a cheese danish. I, personally, just want to eat it with a spoon. That’s how delicious it tastes! When it comes to sweet cheeses at Trader Joe’s, you simply cannot beat this one.
