Well everybody, it looks like the holiday season is finally here — at long last — and you know what that means: a plethora of tasty treats are about to fill my fridge to the brim. From bubbly cocktails and yule logs, to chocolate truffles and Christmas cookies, there's a lot of delicious treats that have my stomach grumbling in anticipation. However, I'm most excited to get in on Whole Foods' 12 Days Of Cheese 2018. If you ask me, it's the tastiest way to celebrate.
Whole Foods' mere existence is basically a gift from the heavens all on its own, but the organic supermarket is bringing eternal holiday joy to everyone this season with its annual 12 Days Of Cheese. If you didn't partake last year, Whole Foods' 12 Days Of Cheese highlights a different artisanal cheese everyday, starting on Dec. 12, and going all the way through Dec. 23, according to a press release. Customers will be able to purchase each selected cheese for 50 percent off that day, and if you're an Amazon Prime member, you can add a an additional 10 percent off the already-discounted price. I told you, it's a completely unreal deal, and if you ask me, it's absolutely perfect if you're planning on entertaining or hosting this year.
Starting on Dec. 12, according to the press release, this year's featured cheeses are set to include:
- Klare Melk Truffle Gouda
- Esquirrou Petit Ossau-Iraty
- Kaltbach Cave Aged Le Gruyère
- Vermont Creamery Bijou, Mons Camembert
- Neals Yard Dairy Keen's Cheddar
- Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog
- Uplands Cheese Company Pleasant Ridge Reserve
- Saxon Creamery Hika Bay
- Rogue Creamery Organic Enraptured Blue
- Mitica Drunken Goat
- Cellars at Jasper Hill Kombucha Willoughby
I don't know what half of those varieties are, but they still sound straight-up delicious to me. TBH, I have my eye on that Truffle Gouda... yum.
