Last week on the blog I reviewed Costco Beecher’s “World’s Best” Mac and Cheese, Costco Rondoletti Rolled Wafers, Costco Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites and the Costco Pierre Biscuiterie French Butter Cookies.

I love dill pickle chips and the Taylor Farm’s Dill Pickle Salad Kit from Costco so I decided to try this Bothwell Spicy Dill Pickle cheese when I saw it at my Costco.
I paid $12.99 Canadian for the 600-gram block of cheese. That’s definitely not cheap but most cheese is expensive, especially for a big block of a unique cheese like this.
Once opened the cheese doesn’t reseal, it has a convenient pull-apart tab that makes it so you don’t have to use scissors to cut open the package. To store the cheese I recovered it with the plastic it comes in and also put it in a ziplock bag. This cheese doesn’t pair well with everything! It’s definitely spicy and full of flavor.
A 2.5-centimeter cube contains 110 calories, eight grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, seven grams of protein and 230 milligrams of sodium. The ingredients list is short and sweet with dill, pickled jalapeno peppers and milk being the main ingredients.
This cheese is okay, it’s not amazing. The first thing I notice is that the cheese is really salty. There’s a mild dill flavor but the saltiness seems to overpower the dill. I was worried the cheese would be really spicy but it’s not. You don’t notice the heat right away but it sneaks up on you a bit, after a little while you notice the warmth. I wish the cheese were less salty.
