CHICAGO — Kaukauna is adding spreadable cheeses to its lineup with the release of two new cheese ball varieties: Cranberry & Cream Cheese and Four Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato — out in time for the 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 cranberry juice and dried cranberries to create a sweet and tart flavor that pairs well with graham crackers or as a dessert centerpiece. 

Meanwhile, 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 combination of unique flavors and unique texture. 

"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." 

The new seasonal flavors join Kaukauna’s six year-round varieties: Parmesan Ranch Cheese, Port Wine Cheese, Rosé White Cheddar Cheese, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Smoky Bacon Cheese and White Cheddar Cheese. 

Kaukauna Cranberry & Cream Cheese and Kaukauna Four Cheese & Sun Dried Tomato cheese balls will be available starting in September at major retailers nationwide — including Kroger, Albertsons, and Publix. The cheese balls will be available for a suggested retail price of $4.49-$5.99.
