Hosting & Entertaining

Halloween candy isn’t just a nostalgic treat; it can also make an incredible pairing for high-quality cheese. So, don your costume, and let us take you on a journey through candy and cheese pairings that we’re totally sweet on. This is a decadent and decidedly adult way to celebrate Halloween.

New York State Yellow Cheddar + Candy Corn

Opposites attract, so slice into this bright, tangy cheddar to balance the intense honey sweetness of candy corn. 

Murray’s Estate Gouda + Nougat Caramel Peanut Chocolate Bar

It's like with like! The nutty notes of the gouda are the perfect complement to the toasty peanuts layered into this bar.

La Noix d’Argental + Caramel Popcorn

This cheese is washed in walnut liquor, giving it a distinct sweetness. It’s a no brainer pairing for toasty caramel corn. 

Zimbro + Sour Rope Candy

Reach for something puckery tart to match this tangy wheel. Plus, the custardy cheese will cling to the textured candy. 

Fromager d'Affinois + Cherry-Flavored Candy

For a playful take on the classic combo of luscious, buttery double crème and fresh fruit, swap in chewy cherry candy.

Jasper Hill Farm Bayley Hazen Blue + Peanut Butter Cups

Nothing beats blue and chocolate. And the fudgy, nutty flavors of this cheese also happen to work well with peanut butter!
