Pimento Cheese Spread

Where can one buy Pimento Cheese Spread in NYC? I know it's really easy to make, but I'm asking on behalf of someone who would rather buy. It also doesn't have to be the greatest Pimento Cheese Spread in town in order to make them happy.

        Yep, they make a really good one, believe it or not.

      2. I tried the pimento cheese offered at Trader Joes and I'm sorry to report that it sucked. I had no idea whole foods has it too, I've never seen it at the Union Square location but perhaps I wasn't paying attention.

        1. You can find cheese pimiento by the quartfull at every Filipino grocery in the city since it's one of the most popular snacks in the country. Ironically, it's a little harder to find over here. Generally I make my own or pick it up from Whole Foods. Fairway used to have a good version, but I haven't seen it available for a while.
