Trader Joe’s – Ghost Pepper Cheddar Cheese – Food Review

Trader Joe's, ghost pepper cheddar cheese, review, price, calories, nutritionMarch 31, 2018

The heat takes a few seconds to kick in, and then builds for the next few minutes. This is going to be a little more heat than some people like. For heat lovers, it’s not a “call the fire department” kind of heat.  Along with the heat comes the flavor of the ghost pepper, which is very earthy.  Try a little paprika straight out of the spice jar on your tongue to get an idea of the earthy taste.  That’s another thing some people may not like. It is a different flavor.

While all the TJ flavored cheddar combinations reviewed so far, e.g., caramelized onion cheddar, have been more than good, this one doesn’t work for me. The combination of the cheddar, and both the heat and flavor from the ghost pepper just doesn’t work well together. Aside from the ghost pepper overwhelming the cheese, the flavors just aren’t complementary. Perhaps as a topping for a burger, this may work better.

    I agree! Maybe if it were a really sharp cheddar it would have worked better
