Find Your Perfect Pairing with Sargento Tastings
This post brought to you by Sargento. All opinions are 100% mine.
We buy Sargento's off the block cheese weekly, but did you know that they've introduced a new product? Sargento Tastings is a unique line of specialty cheese snacks that will open you up to a whole new world of delicious cheese flavors!
Sargento Tastings come in eight delicious varieties, including Aged Wisconsin Cheddar, New Zealander, Fiesta Pepper Jack and Parmentino. They're just $2.69, and come in adorable little wedges making them wonderful for entertaining. In fact, we just had a little get-together with friends last week and our guests commented on how yummy the cheese was.
What's more, Sargento Tastings are perfectly paired to accompany so many great foods including almonds, baked pita crackers or your favorite wine.
In fact, along with receiving some of the cheeses from Sargento to try, I received a wonderful sheet with suggested cheese pairings. Many of them are so sophisticated and delicious that I gained some great new ideas for entertaining and indulging at home.
As noted above, we also want to hear how you paired it with everyday ingredients (food and/or drink) to make it a special occasion for you. Whether its indulging while making dinner with a glass of wine or snacking on Tastings with some nuts during your snack break – we want to hear what you did and how you paired it to fit for your life and tastes.
As you all know, I also have two small children who wanted to get in on the pairings fun, too. They chose the Aged Wisconsin Cheddar, and we paired it with grapes and crackers. Does it makes sense? Maybe, maybe not. I can tell you that the kids really enjoyed it, though!
My favorite cheese was the Aged Wisconsin Cheddar and Aged Vermont White Cheddar, because I'm always a sucker for cheddar cheese. I also really liked the New Zealander (Egmont) that was a bit creamier but still pleases a cheddar fan!
My husband's picks were the Bruschetta Jack and Fiesta Pepper Jack which are a bit more adventurous but still delicious.
The Medium Asiago has a stronger flavor but tasted amazing with whole wheat crackers.
The Creamy Havarti was just that, creamy! This was a new one for me and I'm a total fan now.
The Parmentino was also interesting and one that I'm eager to experiment with to find the right pairing!
