When we first saw the October spotlight cheese at Trader Joe's, we were excited and couldn't wait to try it. Of course, we were in San Diego without a refrigerator, so we couldn't try it then, but we put it on our mental shopping list to pick one up once we got home.

The buenalba cheese with paprika is a blend of raw sheep's milk and raw goat's milk. The paprika is mixed into the cheese itself, and the cheese is a really bright orange color. We ate it plain with crackers, like we do most of the spotlight cheeses, instead of mixing it into a recipe. We thought this cheese was just okay. It was really mild in flavor, and we were expecting more from it given all the focus on paprika on the label and in the description. There was nothing wrong with it, and we did enjoy eating it, but it didn't make much of an impression on us.

Buy again? Probably not.
