  1. DANIEL ONEILL

    I found the aroma of the fromage pave I purchased in Dallas to be quite off putting and repulsive. I expect blue cheese to have a strong and acquired aroma, which not all care for. Is this supposed to be the case with fromage pave or does it just spoil easily?

  2. SoCal Shopper

    I consider myself somewhat of a cheese connoisseur – the bolder and stinkier, the better! This Pave cheese is an incredibly rich and sophisticated version of a triple cream brie. It is soft and spreadable, and really opens up if you allow it to get to room temperature before serving. The cheese can be best enjoyed on Tuscan Wafer Thin crackers so you can truly enjoy the robust flavor and creamy texture of the cheese. The previous reviewer must not be a fan of stinky cheese because there is absolutely nothing wrong with this cheese. It is sublime. Now if TJs would only carry it year round, it could be my go-to party cheese.

    what cheese would be comparable to it? Why is it only seasonal, can you get it somewhere else?

    Daniel, this cheese is NOT a blue cheese. It’s a tripe cream brie. If you see any molding on it, it’s bad mold – don’t eat it!

    This cheese for the price was delicious. Great for the holidays and this is not blue cheese.

    It’s real stinky y’all. I haven’t tried it. I was looking for some help deciding if I should eat it.

    Being a wisconsinite I’m picky about my cheese. But holy cow is this stuff amazing! It’s got a ripe smell but considering I eat limburger fairly often it doesn’t bother me much. I love to spread this cheese on a warm bagel or a demi-baguette. I’m waiting to see when it will come out this year.

    This cheese is unbelievably good. One bite converted my guy from his usual cheddar preferences! Can’t wait til the next holiday season when I trust Trader Joes will stock this delicious cheese again for those of us eagerly awaiting it!

    Thank you Trader Joe’s for all your International Holidays foods including Pave fromage from France. I bought some at Christmas time and we all love the mild, delicious, triple cream (brie style)… I went back and bought 8 of them. I gave some to family 🙂 and freeze the others. TODAY I got one out of my freezer and less than 2 hours later I had a delicious, original tasty, creamy should I say ORIGINAL again French cheese…. YumYum!!!!

    Will fromage pave cheese be in the jenkintown pa store this season.

  11. Monique Gesin

    I simply love the taste of this cheese and I only hope it will be available more than seasonal! Just wonderful!

    Marvelous. Thank you, Trader Joe’s. Our favorite cheese of all is Époisses, but love many others and mourn (the far too briefly resurrected) Liederkrantz. It has been hard to find L’Explorateur recently, so wonderful to find this: thanks to a lovely woman who gave us a sample in Portsmouth, NH.

    This cheese is delicious! Wish it would be available all year. I would definitely buy it!

  15. Lena

    So good and delicious! Bring it back as a regular item, not just for the holiday!!!

  16. Mia

    Love it and wish TJ carried it year round. Some of us have been going around and around on this so I will put forth this question: Is the outer cheese shell or “casing” if you will, ok to eat?

  17. Elaine Wong

    please BRING back the Fromage Pave as a REGULAR stocked item!! so delicious!!

  18. Alicia

    So good!

  19. Agatha

    I just LOVE this cheese! Im buying it every time I can. Wished it was a regular item! It’s so smooth, very creamy and just perfect in flavor – robust but not too much. Brings back memories of my trip to France!

    This is the finest cheese I’ve ever eaten!!!! I’ve hoarded and super well wrapped several squares in original packaging since 2019 holiday time. It has only improved. Good God, it’s so fabulous!!!!
