Our relationship with Trader Joe's is not platonic; it is full-on romantic. And just like any romance, it has its ups and its downs. But instead of focusing on the rocky times (ahem, the mile-long lines and general mayhem) let's take a moment to recognize the magical moments — a.k.a the cheese section.
The dairy area at TJ's is the stuff that gourmet-on-a-budget dreams are made of: delicious, well-stocked, cheap, and filled with character. Running the gamut from classic, creamy Bries to full-bodied blues, unexpected goat-cheese blends, and so many more, there are enough insanely affordable options for total cheese-plate domination. And because we're so intimate with Mr. Joe, we won't stop there. We'll be pairing 17 of these wonderful wedges with some of their equally thrilling cracker counterparts.
