Trader Joe’s Ghost Pepper Cheddar Reviews

Ghost Pepper Cheddar: 4/10

I was super excited to try this cheese because I LOVE spicy things and LOVE cheddar. However, I was pretty let down. It is almost too spicy and acidic to even taste the cheese. I didn’t really enjoy this plain, and when I added it to my grilled cheese, it overpowered the whole sandwich. It is $7.99/lb.

Have you tried it yet? What do you think?

  1. I think the best ghost pepper product TJ’s has done so far are the ghost pepper potato chips. They arent too spicy like most other things. The controversy behind creating a ghost pepper product though is that its SUPPOSED to be insanely spicy, ghost peppers arent something you really enjoy as a food but rather as a challenge. Regardless, the chips are their best so far.

  2. Personally, I love spice and I loved this cheese! It was a wonderful balance of spice and cheddar. I used it on a couple of cheeseboards with my boyfriend and I wish I had grabbed more of this cheese when I had the chance! Dark chocolate balances the spice out well if it ever gets to be too much.
