Introducing Two Bold, New Great Midwest® Cheese Flavors: Pepper Jack Cheese and Cheddar Cheese with Parmesan Notes
Made by certified Wisconsin Master Cheesemakers, these new premium cheeses offer up a unique flavor profile that will enhance any dish on your menu, especially handhelds foods. With 50% of 18 to 34-year-olds wanting restaurants to offer more sandwiches with new or unique flavors or ingredients1, these versatile products are a great way to jump on the trend if your menu isn’t already featuring handheld foods.
With Great Midwest® Pepper Jack Cheese, you’ll get a uniquely blended cheese that has grown 17% on menus over the past four years2. This cheese is created by Master Cheesemakers who take the creaminess of traditional Monterey Jack and infuse it with peppers to give it a subtle bite. What makes it a perfect addition to sandwiches, burgers and other handheld foods is its buttery texture, allowing it to pair well with a wide range of ingredients, such as chicken, ground beef, bacon and avocado1 Similar to the mix of flavors found in our Pepper Jack Cheese, our Great Midwest® Cheddar Cheese with Parmesan Notes carefully brings together smooth, creamy Cheddar Cheese with deliciously subtle notes of nutty Parmesan and is nothing short of mouthwatering. It’s the perfect menu enhancer that will help nudge customers in the right purchase direction, 42% of whom think having a premium ingredient is important when deciding which sandwich to order1. Not only that, but Cheddar Cheese is tied with American Cheese as the top cheese variety to order on a sandwich1, meaning it’s an ideal addition to any new handheld foods you might want to add to your menu.
Elevate your menu with flavors that are unique yet familiar to consumers. Whether you use these cheeses to enhance existing menu staples or to explore the evolving handheld trend, we’re sure even ordinary dishes will benefit from these exciting new offerings from Saputo.
