Guest Post: Palmetto Cheese Coming to Six California Costco Stores

October 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

{This guest post is really more of a product announcement from Palmetto Cheese.  At the beginning of November, they will be introducing their cheese across six lucky Costco locations in California.  While their cheese is already in several Costco locations, they are all in the Southeast, so they’re branching out!  The post has all of the information about the cheese and some background on the company, as well.  After reading all this cheese talk, I’m wishing I were still in the US and could give it a try too; I love a nice spicy cheese.}

Palmetto Cheese Coming to Six California Costco Stores

Starting the first week of November, Costco members in six California locations will be able to get a taste of real southern pimento cheese; which we call Palmetto Cheese. Palmetto Cheese is available in Original or the popular Jalapeno version.

Palmetto Cheese™ – "The Pimento Cheese with Soul”

Palmetto Cheese was born in the Lowcountry of South Carolina and you have never had pimento cheese like this! The recipe originated with Sassy Henry. She would whip up batches of her delightful, southern style pimento cheese while living in Atlanta and tailgating at Braves games. Sassy, her husband Brian, and their two children moved to Pawleys Island, SC in 2002 where they took over the historic Sea View Inn.  It is there that Palmetto Cheese was featured as an appetizer each week during the summer lowcountry shrimp boils.  Needless to say, it was a guest favorite.

A family friend and cook at Sea View inn for 25 years, Vertrella Brown of Pawleys Island, is pictured on the container lid.  Vertrella is credited with adding the “soulful” touch to Sassy’s recipe. The result, Palmetto Cheese – “The Pimento Cheese with Soul”.  One of the reasons Palmetto Cheese is so popular is that it’s made with real sharp cheddar cheese, whereas most pimento cheeses are made with processed or American cheese. Palmetto Cheese is available at over 1,000 locations throughout the Southeast, including 16 Costco locations and growing.

Palmetto Cheese is great to serve anytime of the year, especially while entertaining. Give it a try and you too will agree, this is the best pimento cheese on grocery shelves today!
