Depending on your tolerance, you may not even find the cheese as overwhelmingly hot as passedpawn insinuates. I love the cheese, but I don't think it's absurdly hot or anything.
Yep, this... I'm eating slices of this with pretzel snaps right now and it is awesome!

Right. I can munch through half a block in a sitting, no problem.

This is the best cheese to put on a burger too. The pepper jack disappears after a little grilling, but the habanero jack stands up for itself and delivers a nice touch of heat.

Good stuff!

I know I'm late to the game, but the Hot Habanero is really great cheese - I'm snacking on it right now. My only wish is that it was made with a sharper cheddar.

Until a year ago, I had never heard of Cabot. Now we keep at least two different Cabot products at any given time.

Agreed. This cheese is a major contributor to many of my sandwiches and savory breakfast items.

Good call on the burgers although I've not yet used it on my burgers since I use hot "sweet/tangy ozark pickles" on them and don't think they'd work together.

I used to be able to get this stuff locally, but the grocery store chain got bought out, and the local restaurant that sold it stopped carrying it as well, as the supplier kept shipping them moldy blocks (complete lack of correct handling on distributor's part).

Anyways, yeah this cheese is badass. I just got some family to bring some into town. And by some, I mean 12 blocks.

I ate some of this tonight. It's always in the fridge in my house. The very first piece is always the best (!)
