Try Something New... Lavender Cheddar Cheese

Hello, I like cheese. Do you like cheese? I know this may be a funky blog post, but I genuinely adore this cheese so much I had to share. It wouldn't be fair to keep to myself. Okay, so one time when my boyfriend & I were shopping at Frazier Farms we were searching to try something new in the cheese section. The associate behind the counter recommended a lavender cheese & we were instantly intrigued.

I freaking love lavender. It smells delightful, it's soothing, it's great. We immediately picked up the LaDiDa Lavender Cheddar Cheese by Rogue Creamery that she recommended & were on our way. The cheese is a rich savory white cheddar cheese with earthy, organic Oregon-grown lavender blossoms. What a mouthful. A mouthful of yum!

This 8 ounce block of cheese will run you about $8.99 at Frazier Farms; on the Rogue Creamery website it's priced at $12. Now that's not the most economically friendly price, but if you want to devour something different, something that's a bit of a novelty food, I would absolutely recommend getting this.

It has a unique flavor to set it apart from any other cheese you've tried. Obviously, as with all cheeses, don't nosh on the entire block. Portions are important. This is high in fat, saturated fat, & sodium. But it's an incredible treat paired with fruit & crackers.

  7. Years ago my step mum brought home chocolate cheese which was made at the University of Michigan-- it will forever be the weirdest cheese I have ever eaten, and I kind of didn't trust it!
    This sounds interesting, if I ever see it I'll definitely have to try it!

  16. Such an interesting combination! You'd think the lavender would give it a perfume like taste, but it sounds savory enough to me!

  25. The first time I heard lavender was a food I was floored... until I tried it. It's a nice flavor that I can't really compare to anything, but I like it! I would love to pair this cheese with crackers and a light, crisp wine.
