CULLMAN — Grace Episcopal Church’s Women’s Missions will sell cheeseballs now through Oct. 3. Each is only $8, with all proceeds benefitting church projects.

Cheeseball flavors being offered this year:

Boursin: Flavors of the French countryside are a combined cream cheese, butter, red wine, parsley, garlic and Herbs du Provence - scintillating!

Chipped Beef: Hearty taste of beef in cream cheese with a mild taste of scallions - always a hit!

Chocolate Chip: Added to the cream cheese are rich butter and chocolate chips - great accompaniment to graham crackers, vanilla wafers or apple slices. This is perfect as an appetizer, snack or dessert offering.

English Cheddar: Our best seller of English cheddar covered in chopped pecans. Great on English water biscuits or any favorite cracker!
