The holidays are for cheese platters and charcuterie boards…or vice versa. Either way, the appetizers are popular at holiday (or dinner) parties — lots of variety for the guest and relatively easy prep for the host.
However you design your platter or board, there is always one key ingredient necessary — cheese…and lots of it.
Whole Foods Market is helping hosts up their cheese game with highly curated varieties available at a discounted price with its annual 12 Days of Cheese Sale.
From funky to mild, creamy to crumbly, these cheeses aren’t just any cheeses. The Whole Foods Market team searched the world to find them, making for a more “fancy affair” for any gathering or tasting.
From Dec. 13 to 24, the popular grocery store is offering 30% off on a variety of cheeses. The discount applies to all 12 cheeses for all 12 days. Even better, Amazon Prime members save an extra 10%.
