Retailer The Fresh Market has added a new twist on guacamole just in time for Cinco de Mayo.
The Fresh Market is launching guacamole-infused gouda cheese to all of its 161 stores May 1, according to a story in Yahoo! Finance.
The cheese, called Amanti Guacamole Cheese and made by Daily Dairy in Holland, is a green cow's milk gouda blended with avocado, lime juice, chili, tomato, onion and garlic.
Amanti Guacamole Cheese will retail for $24.99 per pound. This cheese is sold in a giant green wheel, but it can be sliced and bought in wedges by the pound.
“Based on the ingredients, this guacamole-blend cheese could be a little healthier, especially if the avocado replaces some of the saturated fats with heart-healthy unsaturated ones,” according to the story. “It also could save you a few calories this weekend by opting for one guacamole-infused queso dip instead of grabbing a serving of both guac and queso.”
