Guacamole Cheese is here to make eating guacamole even easier

When life gives you avocados, make ... guacamole cheese?

Dutch cheese company Daily Dairy has officially merged two very lovable products into one divisive product.

Meet Amanti Guacamole Cheese. Starting Wednesday, it will be available for the first time in the U.S. The Fresh Market, a North Carolina-based grocery chain with 161 locations in 22 states, is debuting the zesty green block just in time for folks to plan their ultimate Cinco de Mayo spreads.

The cheese is part Daily Dairy's line of specialty Amanti cow's milk cheeses that are infused with different herbs, sauces and spices. Currently available flavors include red pesto, cumin, black pepper and olive. They're distinct, but none are quite as eye-catching as this bright-green wheel.

The Guacamole Cheese, according to Fresh Market dietician Meghan Flynn, is a creamy, Gouda-style, hard cheese that blends real avocados with lime juice, chili, tomato, onion and garlic. Flynn recommends melting it over nachos or into queso for a "festive dip," but it's also great sliced on its own or with crackers.

But how does one actually add avocado to cheese? It's not like a dried spice or fruit, since avocados are already wet and creamy like cheese.

"Avocado puree is added right before they [Daily Dairy cheesemakers] press the cheese curd into shape to keep the puree as fresh as possible," Flynn told TODAY Food.

Despite the popular combination guacamole and cheese on dipping vessels like nacho chips, the cheese is already experiencing some strong reactions on Twitter.

There are those who are wary.

Some are torn between disgust and intrigue.

And many won't even give the cheese a chance.

There are tweeters, however, who think the flavor combination is a perfect fusion of flavor.

Even those with disgruntled reactions, however, would likely agree guac and cheese is a more palatable pairing than, say, lattes served in avocados or melted marshmallow Peeps on pizza, both of which are unapologetically real.

Those who are enticed enough to taste a slice of this guac-y gouda better hurry. Flynn told TODAY the Guacamole Cheese, which costs $25 per pound and can be purchased in wedges of various sizes, will only be sold for a limited-time while supplies last — expectedly for a couple weeks following May 5. If there's a demand down the line, the store would consider bringing Guacamole Cheese back before the next Mexican holiday.

In the meantime, why not celebrate Cinco de Mayo with something a little wild (aside from the tequila)?
