Top Trend: Creamy, Cheesy Goodness

When you think “comfort food,” what comes to mind? If you conjured up images of macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches or cheeseburgers, you’re not alone. Consumers love the satisfying richness of cheese, and it’s no surprise that Technomic named “creamy, cheesy goodness” one of their top 10 trends of the year!1 Bay Valley Foods is here to help your customers capitalize on this trend with a full line of easy-to-use, shelf-stable cheese sauces. Our cheese sauces are a profitable solution for operations requiring versatile ingredients with minimal staff training required. 

Bay Valley Foods cheese sauces enhance appeal across the menu—not just for lunch and dinner appetizers and entrées, but for breakfast and brunch offerings too. Think breakfast fondue, with country potatoes, chicken sausage and biscuits dipped in delicious Mi Pueblo™ Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce. Or Eggs Benedict with Saucemaker™ Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce instead of Hollandaise. If your operators currently serve nachos as an appetizer, show them how easy it can be to create a brunch offering that plays off similar flavors. Traditional Mexican chilaquiles start with fried corn tortillas, topped with salsa, scrambled eggs, refried beans and queso fresco. Swap in Mi Pueblo™ Nacho Cheese Sauce to create a unique, indulgent new item for the morning menu.

When your customers start with Bay Valley Foods core line of cheese sauces, the flavor possibilities are endless. Here are some of our top-selling varieties:

  • Saucemaker™ Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce
  • Bay Valley® Brand Creamy Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • Mi Pueblo™ Jalapeño Cheese Sauce

From classic flavors to bold, spicy varieties, our cheese sauces deliver consistent performance every time—and they’re great for an operator’s bottom line. In fact, 6 out of 10 patrons would pay an upcharge of up to $1.00 more for cheese sauce as a topping or side dipping option.2 Visit the Bay Valley Foods website at to learn more.
