The 9 best grocery store cheeses that won't break the bank

Though English farmhouse Stilton will always make us swoon — and there’s nothing we wouldn’t do for a dollop of Brillat Savarin and a hunk of bread — sometimes all we want is a good ol’ reliable supermarket cheese.

In fact, for those among us who consider themselves cheese lovers, that passion for the curd likely started with the humblest of cheeses from the local store. And we don’t mean “local” as in “artisanal” — we’re talking mass-market, available-almost-everywhere affordable cheeses that we know will taste great in a salad, melted on white bread or consumed with fervor paired with nothing more than a stack of Ritz crackers and a cold beer (preferably while binge watching "House of Cards" or something equally delicious).

The following cheeses (listed in no particular order) are the ones we turn to again and again, the workhorses you will find in our kitchens — and maybe even our purses — almost always. You can find them in supermarkets, Trader Joe’s, Costco, or big-box retailers across the United States.

1. Cabot 3-Year Aged White Cheddar

Not surprisingly, cheddar is a supermarket-cheese favorite. And for me, the gold standard of supermarket cheddar is Cabot Creamery’s 3-Year Aged White Cheddar, a beautifully crumbly, tangy specimen that works well in grilled cheeses, soups, fancy cheese plates and more. I buy a massive block — for a song — whenever I hit Costco. Can't find this particular Cabot? A Cabot customer service rep told TODAY that the Cabot Artisan Reserve Cheddar, available at regular grocery stores and also aged three years, is "almost identical" to the 3-Year-Aged White Cheddar we get at Costco.

2. Président Brie

For buttery Brie, TODAY contributor Kendra V. Lico loves the versatility of Président . “Left out at room temp it's creamy and great to eat with crackers. But it's sturdy enough to go into a baked Brie without oozing all over or falling apart,” says Lico.

3. Locatelli Grated Pecorino Romano

TODAY’s Associate Food Editor Emi Boscamp has lots of feelings about this cheese. “The only cheese I buy time and time again at grocery stores is Locatelli Grated Pecorino Romano. It’s perfect for topping pastas, making pesto, sprinkling atop eggplant and broiling. I can always count on the nuttiness of that magic powder. It never fails me,” says Emi. Convinced yet?

4. Old Croc Sharp Cheddar

The second cheddar selection on our list, this Australian cheese (aged nine months) is the pick of TODAY Producer/Editor Bianca Brosh, who buys it wherever she can find it. “It bites back, with bold nutty tones up front and a hint of creamy sweetness at the end,” she says. She particularly enjoys it paired with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

5. WisPride Port Wine Cheese Spread

This is my go-to cheese when I want a tub of cheese spread — more specifically, a tub of tangy orange cheese spread and a pile of Triscuits. Though these Triscuit-and-tub-of-cheese-spread moments are relatively rare, they are very particular and call for very particular supplies: Hank Williams, whisky, and said port wine cheese spread and Triscuits. You get the picture. But even if you don't have a ritual around cheese spread, it's a party fixture with Triscuits — or any other kind of cracker.

6. Kerrygold Cheddar, Skellig and Dubliner

The Kerrygold brand came up again and again in our informal TODAY survey, especially for — you guessed it — its cheddar. Contributor Megan O. Steintrager usually opts for the Kerrygold Aged Cheddar. Aged for 12 months, “It has a nice sharpness and richness and is great on a cheese and pickle sandwich,” says Megan. Lauren Salkeld, another TODAY contributor, is a fan of Skellig. “It has this lovely subtle sweetness, and it's great paired with tart apple,” notes Lauren. Bianca, on the other hand, goes for Kerrygold’s one-year-aged Dubliner. “It’s a party staple at my house. It has a nutty, bold, and slightly sweet taste,” she says. “It's always the cheese I run out of when I have people over as well the one guests ask about the most.”

7. Emmi Kaltbach Le Gruyère AOP

For wonderfully nutty, real-thing Swiss Gruyere, Kendra gives a hearty shout-out to Emmi Kaltbach Le Gruyère AOP. “This is my go-to for adding into mac and cheese or fondue. It has a refined taste and is more cost-effective than a Gruyere from a fancy cheese shop.”

8. Président Crumbled Feta

For feta, Kendra — who apparently has some very strong opinions on cheese — reaches for Président Crumbled Feta. “It stays forever in the fridge and has the briny feta flavor you want,” she says. Make crostini, pair with watermelon or try it in with mint and snap peas.

9. Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar

If Beyonce were a supermarket cheese, she’d definitely be this one. With both mass appeal and hipster cred, Unexpected Cheddar was the runaway winner of our survey. (It is also a hit among TODAY fans.) Megan called it “nicely crumbly” with an “intense flavor,” while producer Jackie Olensky noted that “it tastes like it’s from an expensive cheese shop.” Managing editor Amy Eley adds, “The title definitely fits the cheese perfectly as it tastes like a sheep’s milk cheese and is definitely not what I anticipated. It’s SO good.”


My 6-Year-Old’s Response to the “Bad Mom” Who Screamed at Her in a Walmart Meltdown

My face got kinda hot, and I kept my head down on the task at hand. Scan the cereal. Scan the cereal. Even though my vision remained on the box of honey nut goodness I could still see the strangers’ gazes. They were staring at me. Me, the bad mom. The bad mom with three adorable, cherub-faced children all six and under. I was the Big Bad Wolf surrounded by darling Red Riding Hoods’. Or maybe they were more aptly in line with Goldilocks, but whatever. I kept scanning my groceries in the convenient evil that is Self Check-out, and I dared not look up. I had just run into someone I knew. Oh God, I hope she didn’t see my miniature meltdown. 

My 6-year-old had been “helping” me scan the groceries. We were trying our hand at checking out ourselves since every other line extended to Siberia, and this was our second grocery store we had entered this day in my quest to save money on the food bill. Sigh. The 4-year-old kept trying to scan groceries left behind by the people before us, and my 6-year-old stood on the opposite side precariously holding a carton of eggs.

“Let me scan it! Let me scan it!”

She’d repeat herself for infinity until acknowledged.

The baby spit chewed-up crackers into my purse, and the store employee standing ready to assist watched the chaotic circus we had going across the conveyor belt.

Become A Contributor

She’s gonna think I’m trying to steal something!

I just want to go home. 

You see, it was two degrees outside, and I had on six layers which weren’t feeling real great right about then. And though I’d lived in Chicago, among other Northern cities, I had never had to maneuver through winter chill with three small children in tow.

Seriously, how can you buckle those snaps when you can’t feel your fingers?!

Suddenly, out of the blue, the electronic voice chirped, “There is an unexpected item in the baggage area.”

The computer lady seemed to get louder.

“There is an unexpected item in the baggage area! Please remove the item from the baggage area!!”

In my periphery I glimpsed the store associate who was there to help. She watched me, and I only assumed she wanted to give me a chance to figure it out on my own so I could be a better self-checker in the future.

The auto-voice screamed, “Please wait for assistance!”

And that’s when I saw the toy my child had placed in the baggage area. And that’s when she chose to question me, “What’s the problem, mom?” And that’s when I answered her with a volume saved for outdoor sporting events when your team is losing. Or perhaps when you’re alerting  a stranger to an oncoming car headed to their person.

“The problem is you put your toy in the baggage area!! That’s the problem!!” I yelled.

Her simple question in no way deserved the response I gave, and half the field of curious eyes stretching across the aisles of Walmart would have agreed had they been able to figure out why the wild-eyed woman wailed. I could have blamed it on the fact that the 4-year-old had just choked in McDonalds right before that. Like for real, seriously had to do the Heimlich to open her airway choked. And maybe my raw emotions had a part to play. But in all honesty, I lost my temper on most days, whether I had seen my kid’s bulging eyes and blue lips or not. In my mind’s eye, as I stood there finishing up our grocery trip, I felt like the worst mom in the whole world. I was always messing up in one way or another, and no matter how hard I prayed and tried, I always seemed to fall short.

I trekked to the van with a basket of food, but not before putting three little coats on wiggly, chirping bodies. The baby stood up in the shopping buggy, threatening to leap to her demise, and a man to my right gasped with fear. I gathered my chicks for the cold, treacherous walk across the parking lot, and then fumbled clumsily with buckles amidst frost-bitten fingers. As we drove away my 6-year-began to speak hurriedly in run-on sentences fueled by her zeal for life. This is her norm, but she surprised me when she said happily, “Thanks for today, Mom! This has been the best day ever!”

The best day ever? She wasn’t glum about my outburst moments before? She wasn’t scarred for life by my utter failure to ever consistently remain calm, cool, collected and/or otherwise Mary Poppinsish? Wasn’t she disappointed in me like I was disappointed in me?

Later as I put together dinner I prayed about the situation, and I felt like God chuckled at me. He spoke to my spirit, “Do you think I just see the bad stuff, Brie, when I look at you? Your daughter sees the good because she loves you. And I love you too.”

I suppose it’s easy for me to only see my faults, but those who love me, be it my children, spouse or even my creator, they see my heart eager to do well. They see past my shortcomings to my desires to serve them out of adoration and deep affection. If only all the world could see with such eyes. Perhaps if we saw ourselves and others with eyes of love we might also veil them with grace. We’d be quick to forgive, quick to give some slack and certainly more relaxed. And it definitely wouldn’t be such a surprise when someone felt like the worst of you made for the best day ever.

365 by Whole Foods

CLEVELAND, Ohio --’s Yadi Rodriguez and Brenda Cain kicked off the new year taste-testing a whopping 95 frozen appetizers found at grocery and big box stores.

While the national brands may play to your recognition factor because they are sold at several retailers across the country and touted in commercials, don’t discount the store brands. Manufactured and sold exclusively by a retailer, these often suffer from the “generic” handle placed on them for being a store brand.

While on the hunt for frozen appetizers -- store brands and name brands alike -- we found several store brand apps worthy of a shout out for their taste and uniqueness in the marketplace.

Check out our rankings below to see which store brand frozen apps are excellent choices for your table, regardless of the size of your soiree -- whether it is a few friends, your pod, or just a treat for yourself.

We’ve spotlighted the best frozen appetizers we tried that are made by the following stores: Whole Foods, Aldi, Target, Walmart and Trader Joe’s.

We sampled three excellent appetizers from the 365 line at Whole Foods, two of which made our Top 20 overall.

Jalapeños & Cream Cheese Small Bites, 365

Jalapeños & Cream Cheese small bites, 365

Box says: Made with spicy jalapeños and cream cheese.

Our thoughts: We kicked off the Top 20 with these tiny triangles, filled with chopped pieces of jalapeno and mixed into a creamy cheese filling so you get a kick with every bite. What makes these jalapeño bites different and stand out from all the others we tried is that the Jalapeños were chopped, and incorporated into the filling, so we didn’t have a large, soggy piece of jalapeño inside the breading. By incorporating the pepper into the filling, you get great Jalapeno flavor in every bite.

Macaroni & Cheese Small Bites, 365

Macaroni & Cheese small bites, 365

Box says: Macaroni and cheese made with real cheddar cheese.

Our thoughts: These are some of the smallest mac and cheese bites we found, but their big flavor stands up to any craving you have for a carb-heavy snack. Creamy, thick, and cheesy inside, wrapped in a crunchy outer shell. A real winner.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 210 | Fat 8g | Cholesterol 15mg | Sodium 340mg | Carbs 27g | Protein 8g

Appetitos can be found at Aldi. We tasted three appetizers from the line, but the best, by far, was the Loaded Potato Skins, which ranked 67th overall.

Loaded Potato Skins, Appetitos

Loaded Potato Skins, Appetitos

Box says: Loaded potato skins with cheddar cheese and real Applewood smoked bacon.

Our thoughts: While the potato still had plenty of “meat” on the peel, it got hard upon cooking. There was lots of (is that American?) cheese, which didn’t fully melt, and the consistency was off. The adequate bacon stayed crispy and was flavorful.

Calories 220 | Fat 17g | Cholesterol 15mg | Sodium 240mg | Carbs 13g | Protein 6g

Buy it on Instacart $2.75 | We bought it at Aldi’s for $2.49

Good & Gather is one of Target’s store brands. We tasted seven appetizers from the line during our sampling. Below we are featuring three, which all made our overall Top 10.

Brie & Berry Jam Bites, Good & Gather

Brie & Berry Jam Bites, Good & Gather

Box says: Berry jam blend of blackberries, raspberries, strawberries in a flaky phyllo cup and topped with brie cheese.

Our thoughts: Is this a dessert or an appetizer? They could be either. Whether you are looking for sweet or savory, you’ll find it in this unique appetizer. The savory combo of cheesy goodness covers bright, tart berries delivered in a flaky, easy to eat cup. These little bites took the No. 8 spot in our overall ranking.

Buy it at Target $4.99

Uncured Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Good & Gather

Uncured Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Good & Gather

Box says: Uncured bacon and Atlantic scallops.

Our thoughts: If your first thought is this appetizer is a little too fancy for your small gathering -- or just an evening in -- think again. First off, who doesn’t love bacon? Wrap it around a succulent, firm scallop and you have an explosion of taste in your mouth! And the toothpicks make this an easy grab-and-go bite. It may be a little greasy, but we repeat, who doesn’t love bacon? This one ranked No. 3 in our overall list of best appetizers.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 220 | Fat 17g | Cholesterol 40mg | Sodium 410mg | Carbs 3g | Protein 16g

Buy it at Target $7.99

Parmesan Pastry Wrapped Uncured Hot Dogs, Good & Gather

Parmesan Pastry Wrapped Uncured Hot Dogs, Good & Gather

Box says: Topped with a blend of parmesan cheese, sesame, poppy and caraway seeds.

Our thoughts: These bites were our overall winner with their outstanding balance of flavor. A delightful aroma while baking primed our taste buds. The flaky dough browns up nicely and provides crunch in every bite. Not your usual hot dogs, these little meat bites will remind you of Lil Smokies. Just the right pastry-to-dog ratio, and the toasted seeds add additional texture, making this a delightful bite. Not your typical pigs in a blanket.

The Great Value brand is well known as Walmart’s store brand. We found three appetizers to try during our shopping excursions. The spinach dip came in ninth place.

Spinach, Artichoke & Gouda Dip, Great Value

Spinach, Artichoke & Gouda Dip, Great Value

Box says: Spinach, artichoke and gouda dip.

Our thoughts: This dip is packed with plenty of veggies -- spinach, artichoke and onions -- all of which retained their fresh flavor, in a rich and creamy cheese sauce. You can taste each ingredient individually, yet they meld together nicely. The perfect complement to your favorite cracker or chip.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 80 | Fat 5g | Cholesterol 10mg | Sodium 220mg | Carbs 3g | Protein 4g

Buy it at Walmart $4.96

Market Pantry is the second store brand we found at Target. We tasted nine appetizers from this line but are giving a shoutout to only three, which ranked highest in our overall ranking.

Mini Cheeseburgers, Market Pantry

Mini Cheeseburgers, Market Pantry

Box says: Beef patty with cheese on a bun.

Our thoughts: Way more bun than beef. Sufficient cheese. Be careful not to overcook these because the sweet bun gets crunchy. It is a decent bite, for what it is. This little patty came in No. 54 in our overall ranking.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 300 | Fat 12g | Cholesterol 40mg | Sodium 720mg | Carbs 30g | Protein 14g

Buy it at Target $3.49

Potato Skins, Market Pantry

Potato Skins, Market Pantry

Box says: Potato skins stuffed with cheddar cheese and fully cooked bacon.

Our thoughts: This is as solid a potato skin as you will find in the frozen app world. Nicely-sized potato with plenty of hearty toppings. It ranked 48th.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 230 | Fat 16g | Cholesterol 40mg | Sodium 510mg | Carbs 12g | Protein 8g

Buy it at Target $6.79

Honey Barbecue Boneless Chicken Bites, Market Pantry

Boneless Chicken Bites – Honey Barbecue Flavored, Market Pantry

Box says: Breaded boneless skinless chicken breast chunks with rib meat coated with a sweet barbecue glaze, smoke flavor added, fully cooked.

Our thoughts: This was one of the few real chicken breast pieces -- not processed -- we found. Coated in a mild, slightly smoky, honey barbecue flavored sauce, this nugget is firm and meaty. It captured the No. 32 spot.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 180 | Fat 7g | Cholesterol 30mg | Sodium 490mg | Carbs 17g | Protein 12g

Buy it at Target $3.49

The Trader Joe’s brand speaks for itself. We tasted 10 appetizers, three of which made our Top 20.

Pastry Bites with Feta Cheese & Caramelized Onions, Trader Joe’s

Pastry Bites with Feta Cheese & Caramelized Onions, Trader Joe’s

Box says: Pastry bites with feta cheese and caramelized onions. No preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors.

Our thoughts: Sweet onion and a creamy cheese in puff pastry is a delicious bite that stands out amid so many of the same ‘ole, same ‘ole appetizers. It is a delicious combo of flavors in a bite-sized treat. This one ranked No. 19 in our overall standings.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 240 | Fat 18g | Cholesterol 65mg | Sodium 300mg | Carbs 15g | Protein 5g

We bought it at Trader Joe’s for $4.99

Mac and Cheese Bites, Trader Joe’s

Mac and Cheese Bites, Trader Joe’s

Box says: Imagine the cheesiest bite of macaroni and cheese encased in a crispy outer coating. We have created the ultimate appetizer inspired by our popular Diner Mac & Cheese. They’re compact, they’re comforting, they’re cheesy and they’re delicious.

Our thoughts: While other mac bites are covered in a traditional breading, these bites have a decidedly panko coating, which takes ‘crispy’ to a new level. Inside, the noodles are firm and covered in a smooth sauce blended from several cheeses. Could have used a little salt though. These bites came placed 17th.

Nutrition per serving:

Calories 190 | Fat 10g | Cholesterol 25mg | Sodium 280mg | Carbs 19g | Protein 7g

We bought it at Trader Joe’s for $3.99

Pimento Cheese Puffs, Trader Joe’s

Pimento Cheese Puffs, Trader Joe’s

Box says: Puff pastry filled with pimento cheese, uncured bacon and caramelized onion.

Our thoughts: Adults who remember when Frank Ryan was throwing the ball around Cleveland Municipal Stadium will also remember that delicious pimento cheese that graced every table in the 1960s. Younger folks may find a new favorite snack with these tasty little bites filled with a spicy pimento cheese atop a flaky puff pastry. Just spicy enough to provide a nice little kick. Good balance of toppings. Nice change of pace from typical appetizers. Theses cheesy bites captured the No. 14 spot in our rankings.

Is there anything more comforting than a grilled cheese? I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of childhood or just because it’s bread covered with butter and stuffed with melty cheese. Probably a little of both.

This Raspberry, Basil, and Brie Grilled Cheese is full of different textures and flavors and tastes like summer to me.

The Best Cheese To Buy At The Grocery Store...And What To Avoid!

North Battleford Walmart employee semi-finalist in international talent contest

Brie McAuley, 25, has made the top 32 in an international talent contest for Walmart employees.

The support manager at the retail company’s store in North Battleford, Sask., said she was hesitant to enter her own original piece of music in the 2020 Walmart Associate Talent Search (WATS).

“It was completely out of my comfort zone to do because I felt that I’m not confident in the things that I’m writing, but I guess we’re our toughest critics,” she said on Monday over the phone.

“I decided that I should go with it and I got a lot of feedback from it so I was very happy with my decision.”

Story continues below advertisement

Her first-ever song written for piano, Living Skies, has taken her to the WATS semi-finals among entries from around the globe. Only two entries from Canada were selected.

“Top 32 out of almost 300 people. It is an incredible feeling, for sure,” she said.

The pianist wrote the song years ago when her mother was battling Stage-3 cancer.

“[Mom’s] actually cancer-free now but she had an 18-per cent survival rate and I almost lost her, so I guess the feelings that I was feeling after she was sick, it inspired me to write… I usually write a lot when I’m upset but that’s when the most beautiful stuff comes,” McAuley said.
