Monger Madness: Meet the ultimate cheese champion

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Monger Madness: Three weeks, eight delicious cheeses and seven taste-offs.

We are pleased to announce our ultimate cheese champion: Bent River Camembert.

  • An artisan soft-ripened cheese made in small batches by Alemar Cheese Co. in Mankato, Minnesota.
  • Made from pasteurized cow’s milk.
  • Named after the sharp turn of the Minnesota River just a few hundred yards from the production site.
  • Features a smooth, soft texture throughout that becomes more pungent as it ripens.
  • The flavor varies from mellow, mushroomy, milky, buttery to full-flavored at peak.

Based on in-store sampling and customer votes, this tasty cheese was chosen as the fan favorite.

Try it for yourself! Look for it in our cheese department.
