Best Cheeses from Trader Joes [moved from Los Angeles area board]

What are some of the tastiest cheeses to purchase from Trader Joe's? I'm building a cheese plate and need some suggestions. Already on my list: Smoked Gouda, English Cheddar with Caramelized Onions & Toscano Cheese with Black Pepper. Any others?

    1. How about Manchego with apple slices, or if you can get some quince paste, that is delicious too.

          Definitely second the Red Dragon. Cheese made with ale and whole grain mustard. It's been a big hit every time I put it on a cheese plate.

        2. Societe Roquefort and Le Delice des Bourgogne get my vote.

            Ditto on Les Delice... especially with a touch of fig jam

              I agree on the Délice de Bourgogne! I used to buy it at a local Cheese shop which went out of business, so I was happy to see it popping up at TJ, and much more reasonably priced too.

            2. I had some excellent imported gorgonzola, from Italy, creamy and tangy. Goes well with bubbly!
