GO IRISH! Cheese
by Michelle Salatino, Food Service Merchandising Assistant
I don’t know about you, but when I think St. Patrick’s Day, I think green beer, Irish soda bread and good old Irish cheese.
This week we are featuring some wonderful Irish gems, Green Wax Cheddar (this item is available for a limited time) and Tipperary Cheddar. Our Green Wax Cheddar is aged for a minimum of 12 months and made of 100% pure Irish milk. The milk for this cheese is taken from cow’s grazing the green grass of southeast Ireland, an area known as “The Garden of Ireland.” This cheese is tangy, sweet and slightly sharp.
Our Tipperary Cheddar comes from the land of Tipperary in Ireland. This part of Ireland is known for its dairy products due to the green pastures and mild climate. As a result, this great cheese exists. It is aged over 12 months, and has a slightly crumbly texture and a wonderful sharpness to it.
Both of the cheeses are made from grass fed cow’s milk. This gives the cheese the beautiful soft yellow color.
Our Irish offering doesn’t stop there. We also carry Irish Kerrygold butter, Cheddar with Porter, Cheddar with Whiskey, Dubliner and many more. So come on in to Bristol Farms and pick up some Irish goodies to go with that green beer!
