New Pimento Cheese Varieties Available from Schreiber Foods

We are excited to announce two new products from Schreiber Foods are now available through IPAP! The Triple Cheddar Pimento and Cajun Jalapeño Pimento cheeses are packed full of flavor and provide a new twist on many recipes!

Commonly called “The Caviar of the South,” pimento cheese is a widespread staple throughout the Southern states. However, pimento cheese doesn’t have to be just a Southern thing; it’s an adaptable cheese spread that could be leveraged in a wide range of applications, from appetizer dips and fry toppers to being the key ingredient on a burger or sandwich build. It is quickly becoming an American favorite!

Pimento cheese is a versatile item and can be substituted in applications in place of other types of cheese like Cheddar, creating a more premium menu item with elevated flavors.
