Pear & Cheese Pairings

A Healthy Choice. Pears are an excellent source of fiber, offering 24% of the recommended daily value per medium-sized pear, and they’re a good source of vitamin C, too.

Cheese is a great source of calcium, one of the key nutrients that helps to keep bones and teeth strong. Rich in protein as well, cheese eaten with meals in 1 to 2 ounce servings may actually help curb hunger and keep you feeling satisfied after meals and snacks. Cabot cheddar cheese is also lactose and gluten-free, making it a great snack for anyone!

Just like wine, some pears pair better with certain cheese. From aged cheddars to milder colby jacks, there’s a perfect pear to accentuate the flavor of any cheese.
