Trader Joe's Alta Badia Cheese

Once in a while, I pick a cheese basically at random from the extensive selection at Trader Joe's. This was one. I think it was the featured selection for a while. I had never heard of Alta Badia cheese. The cashier noticed it in my basket and commented that it was really good and I'd love it. This doesn't mean much, because I'm pretty sure TJ's cashiers are instructed to make such a comment on at least one item in every customer's haul. But in this case he was right. I do love it.

It's sweet and creamy, a lot like Gruyere. It slices easily and neatly. I ate half of this block in one sitting.

Will I buy it again? 

Absolutely. It's a new favorite--so good that it's flirting with Top Ten status.


  1. I think Alta Badia was a cheese of the month that's not available any more.

  2. hahaha, I think the employees are told to brag on their products too. Too bad, I would have tried this one.

  3. I saw this cheese on the shelves at my local TJ's again this morning, so it may have been promoted to a regular product.

  4. Hey TJ's
    Please make this wonderful cheese a regular. Alta Basis is heavenly!!!

  5. This cheese is terrific. PLEASE bring it back to Trader Joe's.
