Trader Joe's Shaved Cheese Blend is a super pizza topper, whether as a "finishing" cheese sprinkled atop your toppings, or as a "base" cheese in place of a more traditional shred. It's a thinly shaved combo of our Unexpected Cheddar - with its creamy, Cheddar-like texture and fruity, almost Parmesan-like flavor - our Toscano - a sweet, tangy, Italian-inspired cheese - and a 20-month aged Parmesan, with subtle caramelized notes and a slightly crystallized texture. In addition to its pizza potential, it's a good choice for pasta dishes and salads, especially with slightly peppery greens like arugula.
Our Shaved Cheese Blend ensures the robust, rich flavors of multiple cheeses, without requiring that you 1) buy separate blocks of cheese, 2) buy a cheese-shaving-gadget, or 3) shave anything you're planning to eat. It's also an exclusive-to-Trader Joe's creation, and is available only in our stores. We're selling each five ounce tub for $2.99*, every day.
*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Shaved Cheese Blend is $2.99 in our West Coast, East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores and $3.99 in our Texas stores.
