Spring, Shamrocks, and Irish Cheese!
Well Spring is in the air and green is on your mind. Shamrocks that is. It is the time of year when everyone is from “The Old Country” and trying to have an Irish accent. It is also the time when people have parties (my favorite) and drink green beer (I’m not sure why). I do know that we can take care of all of your Irish cheese needs. Most Irish cheese you will come across will be an Irish cheddar. Kerrygold, an Irish cheese company, is famous for their Dubliner cheese. A nutty sharp cheddar with just a hint of sweet. All that clover you know . . . This year we have a new Irish cheese that we have not carried before and that is our Oscar Wilde. Yes, it was named after the rascal and poet, Irishman Oscar Wilde. This cheese is aged two years so it will have a sharp flavor with a underlying sweetness. One of my favorites is the Whiskey Cheddar.
When you are in our stores don’t forget to stop by our cheese islands. Each and every store has its own style. This week I have been privileged to spend time with the guys at The District, Nate and Kevin. These two are so much fun and totally nuts. Come on in and say “Hi!” Oh and don’t forget to check out their mascot . . . Like I said, Totally Nuts.
