*Rhone Rhanger: Herbs d'Provence.

*Café Ole: espresso.

*Scarborough Fair: honey and lavender.

*Keep it Green: jalapeño.

The cheeses will be available at AJ's Fine Foods, Whole Foods Market, Gina's Homemade, Beckett's Table and Grassroots Kitchen & Tap with more locations coming in the future.

These cheeses are made using a process called Scamorza, which involves coating the cheese in wax on the outside and hanging it with string.

Sizes will range from 4 to 8 ounces and prices from $6-12.
