You have not truly tasted the South, until you have eaten pimento cheese. If you’re not “from here,” pimento cheese is a delightful spread made of cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, maybe some other ingredients like bacon or chives, and a few secret seasonings only the maker of said-brand cheese will ever know and certainly not tell you.
One of these cheeses to gain a lot of popularity here over the last 5 years since it was publicly “born” is Queen Charlotte’s Pimento Cheese.
