As part of its St. Patrick's Day cheese collection with Happy Farms, discount supermarket chain Aldi launched a festive green cheese in the form of a Pesto Gouda. While consumers are undoubtedly familiar with blue cheese, this bright green cheese offers a new kind of experience that pairs the familiar taste of gouda cheese with basil and garlic.

Ahead of St. Patrick's Day this year, Aldi has also released Aged Irish Cheddar, Irish Cheddar with Beer and Irish Cheddar with Whiskey, as well as an English Sage Derby, which also boasts a bold green color.

With the aim of creating highly shareable—and especially Instagrammable—food products, some brands are turning to colored cheese to create standout dishes like rainbow nacho platters and fries topped with colored cheese.
