Grafton Village brings a touch of luxury to their classic smooth cheddar bar with the addition of real black truffles. This Truffle Cheddar Bar has a milky, mild paste with notes of sweet grass, and the small flecks of truffle add an earthy, woodsy essence with undertones of roasted nuts. Standing apart from traditional cheddars with its rich, savory profile, this truffle cheese from Vermont is the perfect pair for dependable accompaniments like Murray’s Sea Salt Crackers and Murray’s Wildflower Honey.
