They ensure that they will produce more batches of long-awaited product in the next few weeks. And, despite all the media spotlight, this chocolate cheese is not exactly new in the world, in Italy it’s appreciated for a long time. While awaiting the new batch, customers can prove their other productions like cheese with wine and cranberries as you can see in the picture below.
In Brazil there is also an entrepreneur who developed a new version of the so famous combination known as “Romeo and Juliet” of guava jam with minas cheese. The cheese is already stuffed, each slice is perfect for consumption. Beyond the traditional version with guava, the company Queijos Triunfo also makes cheese stuffed with hazelnut cream (read Nutella), dulce de leche and salty version such as cream cheese and olives or arugula and olive oil.
