Cracker Barrel Cheese Review & Giveaway

Cracker Barrel sent me a sample of their Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese and a cheese cutting kit (cutting board and 4 knives) to review on my blog. My family loves cheese and consider it a serious privilege to get to try this 2011 U.S. Championship Cheese!



Initially, when I saw that this was Extra Sharp Cheddar, I didn't think I would like it. I usually don't like any kind of sharp cheese. My wife, on the other hand, loves sharp cheeses. I opened the cheese and sliced me off a small piece and tried it on a pita chip. I'll admit I was pleasantly surprised at the taste of Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese. I could eat the whole 10 oz. brick of cheese in one sitting!

Award-winning Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar and all Cracker Barrel cheeses are available in the Dairy Section of leading grocery retailers in the following delicious varieties:
  • Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Medium Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Vermont White Sharp Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Sharp Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Marbled Sharp Cheddar

  • Cracker Barrel Monterey Jack

  • Cracker Barrel Baby Swiss


Here's a tip from the Cracker Barrel Go-To Entertaining Guide that was sent to me! I really like this tip!
Pub Night: Not a wine drinker? Host a gathering for the big game and wash down a serving of Cracker Barrel Medium Cheddar Cheese "Fries" served with Dijon mustard and pretzel sticks with a stout or lager beer. The cheddar flavor and salty pretzels will satisfy even the pickiest taste buds.


You can find many more ways to use Cracker Barrel cheese on Kraft's web site.

Would you like an opportunity to try the cheese I got to try? Cracker Barrel is offering one of my readers the same mailer I received, which includes the cheese, cutting board, and knives!

Please be sure to leave me an email address so I can contact you if you win!
