So, let's take a look and see what's in this month's box.


Dubliner by Kerrygold

Named after the capital city- Dubliner’s flavor journey begins with the happy, grass-fed cows of Ireland's green countryside. Created in 1990 as an alternative to traditional Irish cheddars, it is aged for over 12 months, resulting in a unique flavor that combines nuttiness, sweetness, and sharpness. And its firm and crumbly texture is a perfect testament to the skillful craftsmanship and attention to detail put into every wheel. While not technically a cheddar, it's the perfect alternative, with a distinctive flavor of both cheddar and parmesan. And while it shares certain traits with these cheeses, the combination creates a flavor that is completely its own.

Smoked Potato Chips by Symphony Chips

You can taste the heart and soul that goes into creating these smoky, savory snacks.
