Guacamole Cheese Is Here and We Don’t Know How to Feel About It

Two things we love: guacamole and cheese. It seems natural to combine them, right? More is more?

Wrong. So, so wrong. Guacamole cheese is now a thing that exists, and from the looks of it…we’re going to need some answers.

According to DelishThe Fresh Market is selling Amanti Guacamole Cheese just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Here’s real-life commentary from some of our co-workers: “Both of those things are soft. How can they be in a block?” (Good point.) Also overheard: “Honey, no.”

Here are the dirty deets: It’s a Gouda cheese (insert cheese puns) blended with avocado, lime juice, chili, tomato, onion and garlic. It retails for $24.99 per pound. It’s very green. Per the brand, it has a smooth texture and a guac taste. Maybe that’s your thing; maybe not. We personally can’t get beyond the color, but perhaps it’s better shredded on nachos? Or melted into queso? We do like Gouda, and we love guac. Maybe we’re being judgy.

In any event, the guacamole cheese is available in Fresh Market locations starting tomorrow, May 1. Like avocados, though, it will only be around for a limited time. Get it while it’s, er, ripe.
