Kaukauna—America's #1 manufacturer of cheese balls—is excited to launch its newest variety, Rosé White Cheddar. Because the best wine and cheese pairing is wine in cheese.

Kaukauna's new 10 oz. cheese ball is made with quality aged white cheddar cheese 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 combination of flavors and texture unlike any other. The new product brings cheese lovers everywhere a new way to experience their favorite flavors every day.

"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 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:

  • Rosé White Cheddar
  • White Cheddar
  • Sharp Cheddar
  • Port Wine
  • Smoky Bacon
  • Parmesan Ranch
  • Pepper Jack (seasonal flavor, available starting in September)
  • Asiago (seasonal flavor, available starting in September)
  • Bacon Jalapeño (seasonal flavor, available starting in September)

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, so consumers can celebrate the rosé flavor year-round.
