CHICAGO — America’s favorite spreadable cheese brand, Kaukauna® is excited to announce the release of two new cheese ball varieties, Cranberry & Cream Cheese and Four Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato. Backed by over 100 years of spreading deliciousness, Kaukauna cheese balls are the easiest way to entertain this fall and holiday season.
Kaukauna’s Cranberry & Cream Cheese 9 oz. cheese ball is the brand’s first sweet variety – made with rich cream cheese and blended with delicious cranberry juice and dried cranberries to create a sweet and tart flavor that pairs perfectly with graham crackers or as a delectable dessert centerpiece.
For an option bursting with savory flavors, Kaukauna’s Four Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato 9 oz. cheese ball is made with premium romano, asiago, parmesan, and cheddar cheeses that give the product a unique sharp and nutty taste, which complements the herby basil and tanginess of sun dried tomatoes. Pair it with flatbread or a flatbread cracker for a pizza-like taste. Both flavors are covered in a crunchy almond coating for a delightful combination of unique flavors and texture unlike any other.
“Kaukauna cheese balls are a casual classic — the perfect centerpiece for simple entertaining that can be enjoyed so many ways, whether the core of a cheese plate or as a stand-alone snack served with your favorite vegetables and crackers,” said Michael Averbook, Senior Associate Brand Manager of Kaukauna. “We’re excited to introduce these two new seasonal flavors just in time for fall and holiday gatherings, so friends and families can spend less time stressing about hosting and more time spent creating memorable moments and traditions together.”
Founded in a small town in Wisconsin, Kaukauna cheese balls started as a midwestern tradition and grew to become a staple in households across the country. The new seasonal flavors join Kaukauna’s existing lineup of cheese balls, which are also available in six year-round varieties:
