I had seen the Trader Joe’s Apple Cinnamon Goat Cheese advertised on the website and I wanted to give it a try. The apple cinnamon coating is what really pulled me in because I’ve honestly never purchase goat cheese to eat. I’ve had it on pizza, but I feel cooking cheeses sometimes changes the flavor compared to eating it cold. When I got to Trader Joe’s they were actually giving out samples of the Apple Cinnamon Goat Cheese near the cheese section. So I tried a sample and I really enjoyed it ... so I picked up a log.
According to the label the cheese is “A great balance of textures and flavors. Tart, sweet, tangy and creamy.” I personally didn’t get much of a tart flavor, but I did get the sweet, tangy and creamy. The cheese itself is very creamy and when paired with the sweet apples it gives it a tangy quality. I find it’s really best on a plain cracker that has little to no salt on it. I have had it on a piece of bread in lieu of a cream cheese and it’s tasty, but I prefer it more with crackers. It really is a different and unique snack for me.
A 1 ounce serving, which is roughly 1 inch, is 80 calories and 2 points plus values.
