I feel like an “un-official” spokesperson for Palmetto Cheese. Every time I’m in the store and I see someone looking at it, I tell them to buy it and they will NEVER buy another brand. Recently I was in a Publics in the Perimeter area of Atlanta. I went to buy snacks and some finger foods for a class I was in for Marriott. I came across Palmetto Cheese and bought the last 3 they had. A customer was watching me and saw how excited I was to find the Palmetto Cheese. She asked me about it and I told her how good it was and that she should try it. She said that she would, but I had gotten the last one. I kindly offered her one of the three I had and she accepted. I even told her that I’d give her my cell # and that if it wasn’t the best Pimento Cheese she’s ever eaten to call me and I’d send her money to cover the cost. Several isles later in the store I ran into her again….she had a box of Ritz crackers and was eating her Palmetto Cheese right in the store. When she saw me she quickly told me that she wanted the other 2 containers I had in my buggy. Also she could not thank me enough for telling her about it.
Y’all keep up the good work and I’ll keep spreading the word about the best pimento cheese ever, Palmetto Cheese!!!

Palmetto Cheese has become a true staple in my kitchen. I’ve modified so many recipes using the original and the jalapeno. All my friends in The Woodlands/Houston, Texas are hooked. And here in Gastonia we are planning an Iron Chef Challenge among my foodie friends and neighbors with Palmetto Cheese as the secret ingredient (not so much a secret), but I expect to be blown away…not hard with such a phenomenal product.

Oh my gawd! A friend brought back a container from Charleston and I have been in hog heaven. While I live in New York, I still have real red Southern mud between my toes and am proud to be a Florida cracker. Your Palmetto Cheese is as close to homemade as I have ever had. Thank you and thank you for the memory of what good eatin’ is all about. Keep up to good work. Your mama would be real proud of you.

I had my first container of Palmetto Cheese yesterday and I must say, “Trust me, it is unbelievably fantastic!” I will never be without at least 4 containers in my fridge. I am a neighbor of Jim Henry’s and I just called him to tell his how proud I am of his son and daughter-in-law and am so happy for them. They have a real winner with this product. My husband and I stood at the kitchen counter and ate the whole container yesterday! I got up early and went to the grocery and stocked up! Thanks for such a great, tasty product!

It was “love at first bite” when I sampled your Palmetto Cheese with jalapeno. My breakfast each day is grits with a big scoop of Palmetto Cheese. Sometimes my lunch is crackers and PC. Or a toasted PC sandwich with soup. It has become my hostess gift,
birthday, whatever gift to the the “uninitiated” that become instant
converts. Thank you for a pure, perfect product that exceeds expectation. Long may you produce.

Just wanted to drop by to tell you…::kicking around in the dust:: Well…that I, just wanted to tell you…why, I just LOVE Ya’ll! I’m 40 years old and have started packing my own lunch again after finding your product a few months ago. I had sworn off ALL Pimento cheese products (well, except for the one’s that come in the ‘lil green baggies at The Master’s one week a year) – but now I don’t find it necessary to go out to lunch every single day! THANK YOU, you folks are the greatest. : )

Esther Cope
Thanks…my family truly loves this product, in fact, I have tried to get my local Food Lion to stock it, but instead, they know I leave them to go to BiL0 to complete my grocery shopping :)

Robin Downing - Augusta, GA
My husband has been after me to look your company up on the computer. He thinks we should order your “Palmetto Cheese with Jalapenos” by the gallon. We have three growing boys in our house, and we can never keep enough of your product in the house. We eat it with celery, lettuce leaves, Wheat Thins, etc.
I first tried your product in Edisto, and then noticed our local Bi-Lo carrying it. I have now officially converted my family from Fresh Market Pimento Cheese to your Palmetto Cheese. I am quickly introducing it to our friends!! Great Product!!

Sara Betterton – Johns Island, SC
My husband and I are hooked. Thought you would like to know that we stopped in at the new Publix on Savannah Hwy. [Johns Island] this afternoon to get some of your pimento cheese with jalapenos. We passed up having lunch in town thinking that we would prefer a sandwich with your spread at home.
There was only one container left on the shelf. We quickly grabbed it and asked the butcher whether there was more in the back. His eyes lit up and he said, “Isn’t that stuff just great? Never thought I would pay $6 for a little carton of pimento cheese, but I’m doing it.” We concurred that it is worth every penny.
Congratulations for a great product with a terrific name! From the empty shelf at Publix it appears that that the butcher and we are not the only ones pleased to have found your yummy pimento cheese. Oh, the butcher said that he would
double the order and that the shelf would be restocked by Thursday evening!

So, when I first found this site, I thought “How could any product, much less pimento cheese, possibly have SO many outstanding comments from people?? Can’t be for real.” But I took a chance, bought some, and now I am totally hooked. It’s all true and then some. Best of luck to your business and thank you for being a great example of American entrepreneurship!!!

    Hi Brian & Sassy,I’m Laura Sprance’s mom who surprised her at Seaview Inn for Gary’s 50th birthday party. Lovely location & delicious food & atmosphere. She’s been telling me about your Palmetto pimento cheese spread, & I tasted some at the party. Asked her to stop me at The Pig on my way to airport Sunday, so I could buy some – original & Jalapena. Afraid I couldn’t smuggle it through in my carry-on, but I DID! Am enjoying it so much for grilled sandwiches & on crackers. It’s not available in VA, but when she comes for Thanksgiving am going to give her an order for my friends here. Again, your facility is delightful, & the Palmetto pimento cheese is par excellence! Best wishes,Barbara Bumbalough

    I have never cared for Pimento Cheese! Yuck! Last May 2010, at our end-of-the-year classroom celebration, my room mother made pimento cheese sandwiches with Palmetto Cheese and I was hooked. I love it on sandwiches, spread on saltines, and directly from the container. Matter of fact, I am working on report cards and eating it with saltines (December 2010). Thank you for making me a Pimento Cheese believer.

    My family is in love with your Palmetto Cheese original. We always have a contanier or two in the fridge and eat it at least three times a weeks. We have tried other brands, but nothing compares to yours.

    One re-occuring theme i’ve been seeing on your site is “addicting” That is the only word i’ve used when telling others about your pimento cheese. Thank you for a wonderful product. Makes us proud to be South Carolinians!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my goodness! My husband stumbled across this yesterday at our local Ingles store. I just opened it up and couldn’t stop eating it! It’s over half gone. I immediately looked up this website so I could brag on this pimento cheese. Absolutely the BEST I have ever had or have ever made. Bye Bye, back to my Palmetto Cheese!! I need some coupons, this will be a must have on every shopping trip.

    And a suggestion…..make a big tub for sale! LOL YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    I look from my study where my matt harrison adventure novels originate out to the old river eco system and the mullet jumping which signify the wealth of life within out delicate but sturdy balance with nature of my home and that of Palmetto cheese which must share its robust flavor with our tastes of the South. Read my novel and enjoy this wonderful cheese snack both are tales of the South.

    Found Palmetto Cheese at Ingle’s in the NE GA mountains where I lived. Moved to Atlanta, and had to search a bit, but did find at local Kroger in Peachtree City. Only concern I have is that the Kroger price and the Ingles price difference is $2.11 Wow, Kroger…..that’s some mark up!! I will drive to Ingles nearby in Fayetteville, GA JUST TO GET MY PALMETTO CHEESE FIX AT A LOWER PRICE. Thanks for making this stuff!! Celery covered in it never tasted so good!!!

      Hi Jo Ann,
      Kroger does have a higher mark up for Palmetto Cheese than Ingles. Each store sets its own price for Palmetto Cheese. Have you checked our new map for additional locations in your area? We are also available at select Costco, Walmart and now Sam’s Club locations.

      Here is the link to our locations page:

    A friend of mine introduced me to your wonderful pimento cheese, but I couldn’t find it where I live in Mississippi! I would stock up any time I went to Georgia because it is absolutly addictive!! I’ve made my own pimento cheese all my life but I can’t beat Palmetto! When I went to Wal-Mart to buy my groceries this week, I couldn’t believe my eyes! There was my favorite Palmetto Pimento cheese on the shelf next to that gosh awful brand!!!! I ran over buggies and jumped a display just to get a tub! Just kidding but it would certainly be worth it! Thank you for making such a wonderful, quality product! You can tell a lot of love and soul goes into making it!

    Last weekend my wife made sandwiches for a baby shower at church. She sent me to purchase the brand of pimento cheese that we had been using. Because the brand we normally buy was not in stock I purchased Palmetto. WOW! It does have soul! After trying it one time we are sold! Its richness is so much better. Thank you for making a great pimento cheese.

    Being fairly new to the area, I am from Ohio, I really didn’t pay much attention to pimento cheese, Amish country was right around the corner and they made all different types of cheese and all of them were great. I read an article on pimento cheese the other day and decided that I need to give it a try. I went and bought 4 different companies version of it and I have got to say “YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.” I cannot wait to try the other flavors that you make. Keep up the good work, you have definitely made a good customer out of me, Thanks Again, Drew

    I live in the mountains on the western side of Arkansas but I was born and raised in Charleston. I have always made my own pimento cheese because the stuff in the store has always been awful. I was in Walmart and happened to see the Palmetto Cheese. I laughed out loud and people looked at me like I had lost my mind.I could not wait to get home to taste it. It was well worth waiting for. I have called everyone I know to tell them about it. My son,who lives in Hot Springs,told me to save him some. I told him to buy his own. Thanks for making an old ladies day. Good job.
