Chocolate-covered cheese bars, vegetable-infused cheese blocks and cottage cheese-salsa blends are among a few of the hybrid dairy products that are new to the market.

These products cover everything from snacks to desserts, as well as a range of savory, sweet and spicy flavors. Some of the most unusual hybrid dairy products include Maple Hill Creamery's cream-on-top yogurts and Lewis Road Creamery's 'Chocolate Butter,' which sets itself apart from chocolate butter products as an actual blend of chocolate and artisan butter.

As consumers look for quick and easy sources of protein that will also satisfy their desires for exotic flavor experimentation, brands across the dairy industry are responding with unusual product combinations such as these.
