When I find things I like, I like to share them. From shoes and kitchen gadgets, to farmer’s markets and restaurants. They all can and do get featured here every week. This week I have to share a new product. Trader Joe’s Cheesy pepper spread is a Fabulous Find. I found this at the grocery store in Fort Myers at Page Field Commons. It was an accident.
I love going to TJ’s to stock up on snacks, get items for cheese boards and always, flowers. I was headed out of town to help a friend move and stopped in to grab a few items to nosh on during the process. Packing is always so tedious and you always need fuel. There it was. A tasting table. On that table was a tray of crackers, smeared with some kind of spread. The woman looked at me with a smile and told me that I needed to try this new cheddar cheese spread with hatch chile. Who was I to say no?
Trader Joe’s Cheesy Pepper Spread
It went right into my basket, along with the crackers. My friends devoured it. They dipped pretzels in it, celery sticks too. I have since gone back for another container to confirm its delight. Did I enjoy it because I was so hungry or was it really good? Does it taste a little processed? Yes. Do I care? In this instance, no. It’s a new guilty pleasure. I happily interchange it with my imported, $32 a pound, truffle brie.
I have used it on a burgers as well as on a breakfast sandwich to add a little extra pop. Next, I may try to heat it up for a dip. Trader Joe’s cheesy pepper spread is a Fabulous Find that you will find in my refrigerator on a regular basis now. Or at least until my doctor tells me to stop.
