Product Review: Happy Farms Pimento Cheese Sandwich Spread

I picked this up because while I normally I make my own own pimento cheese, it was so affordable, it was cheaper to buy it than to buy a brick of cheddar and a jar of pimentos myself. At my husband’s current job, he has some work at home days so I thought it would be a good easy choice for lunch if we didn’t have leftovers.

We like spicy food so I bought the jalapeño version but they had plain as well.

I’m sorry to say that this is one food I will ever buy again from Aldi. I’m surprised because it is such a simple food and I really haven’t bought anything at Aldi that I absolutely hated. Until now. I made sandwiches with it and neither of us could finish even half a sandwich. It was not only super mushy, it was oddly sweet. Yes, sweet. Never have I had a pimento cheese with even a hint of sweetness before. It was spicy but it didn’t taste too much like cheese so it was sort of like a creamy, lumpy sweet-spicy spread of nightmares and regret.

I had glanced at the ingredients and they looked normal: cheddar cheese was first, followed by peppers and vinegar. I should have read more closely because it also had high fructose corn syrup in it. Now I really don’t care if something has HFCS in it, personally, but there was no reason for it in pimento cheese at all. It is not a sweet food, and it would add nothing texture-wise or to make it have a longer shelf life. It was just revolting.

Luckily we had some Aldi salmon burgers in the freezer from a few months ago so we had some of those instead.

Verdict: Would never, ever buy again. A billion thumbs down.

    Happy Farms pimento spread is a mysterious, bad tasting concoction of what seems like ground up macaroni and some creamy stuff with bits of pimento. Three adults pronounced it inedible. Aldi refund my money without incident. The rectangle shaped German pumpernickel bread also was super disgusting. The expiration date was 6/2021. Wrong in so many levels.
