I just went through some photos of my trip to the Masters/Augusta National last year (2012). What a place. I’m not sure how many pimento cheese sandwiches I ate, because I lost count. It was that many in the two days I was there. Now I’m making my own pimento cheese sandwiches and dare I say, they might just be better than the ones at Augusta, though the atmosphere isn’t quite the same. Some history here…
As a popular golf blog I receive a lot of product submissions for review. So many that I can’t possibly get to them all. I prioritize them as best I can, and review the ones I think the HOG readers will be most entertained and informed by. Over the years I started to receive food submissions strangely enough. I received so many in fact, that I started up an entirely different web site to review food and beverages. That site isn’t worked as much as HOG, but I do regularly post those food/drink reviews over at Megachomp.com. Check it out.
Tonya’s Gourmet Cheese Spreads
Today’s is a food review, but this one isn’t going to Megachomp. There’s a golf angle…
Tonya’s Carolina Blend Cheese Spread
I’ve been greatly enjoying Tonya’s Carolina Blend – Gourmet Cheese Spread. This is a very tasty pimento cheese blend with all sorts of other good stuff in there including diced olives and jalapenos.
Tonya’s calls their spreads appetizers but I make “sammiches” from them which rival those I’ve had at Augusta National. Other suggested uses are as toppings on hamburgers or french fries. I may need to try that.
A tub of the spread runs $5.99 from Tonya’s web site, a lot cheaper than Masters tickets!
I’ll be posting about the other spreads I’m trying on Megachomp.com, so watch for the rest there! Happy chomping.
