Product Review: Trader Joe’s Vintage Reserve Cheddar Cheese

This February Trader Joe’s came out with a special Vintage Reserve seasonal cheddar cheese. (They released a batch last February too.) I spotted some and picked it up for John, the known cheese hoarder in our house.


Here are some more details and the nutritional information:

Country of Origin: England
Milk Type: Cow
Rennet: Vegetable
Age: 24 months
Texture: Creamy-crumbly
Taste: Intense and savory with natural sweet notes


This cheese is fantastic. It’s just as delicious, sharp, and creamy as my favorite aged Cabot cheeses. It’s much more affordable ($3.99 per) and is perfect for any use (snacking, wine/beer pairing, or adding to a main course like mac & cheese).

  1. Yum! I miss Trader Joe’s…. They’ve apparently filed to open a Colorado store, but no one knows where or when it will open (yet).

    I haven’t tried their vintage reserve cheddar, but just so you know, the pinot grigio salami (conveniently — or brilliantly — located near the cheese) is also excellent.
