Kaukauna Cheese, a brand of Bel Brands USA, Chicago, launched its newest variety of cheese ball: Rosé White Cheddar. The 10-ounce cheese ball is made with quality aged white cheddar blended with a refreshing semi-sparkling rosé wine, which contains sweet notes similar to white zinfandel. Each ball is covered in a crunchy almond coating for a delightful combination of unique flavors and texture, Kaukauna said.

"We're excited to launch the Rosé White Cheddar flavor just in time for fall, especially since consumers have been continuing to drink rosé past summer and it has become a year-round trend," said Shelley Sternard, senior associate brand manager of Kaukauna. "Kaukauna is a great addition to any cheeseboard for every occasion. Whether displayed alongside crackers and veggies or incorporated into an appetizer, Rosé White Cheddar is perfectly compatible with classic fall flavors, and its versatility makes for a wonderful spread."

A Wisconsin tradition since 1918, Kaukauna said it is the nation's largest manufacturer of cheese balls, making it an entertaining staple in households across the country. The new Rosé White Cheddar flavor joins Kaukauna's existing lineup of original cheese balls, which will now be available in six year-round varieties and three seasonal flavors.

Kaukauna Rosé White Cheddar cheese ball will be available in early September in the deli section of Kroger and is rolling out in other major retailers nationwide — including Walmart, Albertson's, Jewel and more — over the next few months. The cheese ball has a suggested retail price of $5.49-$6.99, Kaukauna said.
