Does your cheddar slay?

Does your cheddar slay?

In October we celebrate the arrival of cooler weather and spooky season by celebrating all things garlic! We’ll help you keep the chill and the baddies away with our bestselling garlic cheese lineup: Vampire Slayer Curds, Vampire Slayer Cheddar, Super Slayer Cheddar, and Garlic Olive Fromage Blanc.

Vampire Slayer was one of the first flavors we created at Face Rock, and since then it’s been a consistent fan favorite. Our creamy cheddar enrobes a bold garlic seasoning that carries a distinct bite of garlic. We brought home our very first American Cheese Society First Place Award for Vampire Slayer curds in 2013 shortly after we opened and we haven’t looked back since.

Enjoy some inspiration for getting more of this incredibly flavored cheese on your plate!
