Even months after the Summer Fancy Food Show that took place in June, there are a few products that still linger in my mind. Pine River Pre-Pack’s 60-Month Cheddar Anniversary Spread is one of them. Initially developed as a limited-time offering to celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2023, the specialty maker has announced that it will continue to offer the product due to popular demand.
“The 60-Month Cheddar Spread is made with only the best natural Wisconsin Grade A cheddar that is carefully selected and aged at least five years (60 months) in addition to other high-quality Wisconsin dairy ingredients,” Ian Behm, President, stated. “The result is a gourmet cold pack spread that is bolder, sharper, and richer than other cold pack cheese spreads. While Pine River normally ages out our Cheddar before crafting our award-winning cheese spreads, this longer aging process brings the product to a whole new level.”
Customers want quality spreads that are packed with flavor, and I would agree that the 60-Month Cheddar Spread delivers. For shoppers like me who are looking for that rich flavor that can only be found in cheeses aged five-plus years, our choices are sometimes few and far between. Pine River’s unique product will be filling that need at many key retail locations across the United States with a differentiated and high-quality offering.
“Through innovation and paying attention to consumer trends, Pine River continues to develop new products that we are proud to share with our customers,” added Ian. “We are also considering the creation of more unique, premium, and bold flavors for 2024.”
For consumers looking to get creative with this distinctive product, Pine River has some amazing recipe ideas on its website. The team is also constantly inspired by the feedback received from customers, so be sure to keep in touch.
