WEBSTERVILLE, VT.  — Specialty goat cheese maker Vermont Creamery has added three dessert-inspired goat cheeses: Cherries & Cocoa, Strawberry Spritz and Sweet Truffle.

Scheduled to be available in stores across the US this summer, this decadent trio enables Vermont Creamery to bring its heritage of hand craftsmanship to a new snacking occasion, according to the company.

“The time has come for goat cheese to play in desserts and indulgent snacks, and we’re excited to debut these three new flavors that deliver on that mission,” said Kate Paine, director of marketing for Vermont Creamery. “Inspired by our fans, who are looking for sweet little snacks throughout the day or a treat-myself moment after dinner, we developed new flavors that meet them in those moments. Up until now, goat cheese has reigned as a salad crumble or the center of a cheeseboard; now we believe these flavors will completely change the way people think about enjoying it.”

Featuring a rich and creamy cocoa base hand-rolled in tart dried cherries, Cherries & Cocoa is ideal for an after-dinner dessert or as a mid-day treat.

Strawberry Spritz, inspired by a celebratory Champagne and strawberries platter, pairs perfectly with a glass of extra dry bubbly and some mixed berries or chocolate.

Sweet Truffle is distinguished by using the highest quality Italian black truffles blended into a lightly honey-sweetened mild goat cheese, delivering a robust tasting experience for sophisticated palates.
