Addie, the Trader Joe's we shop at (Shrewsbury) has Tillamook original cheddar all the time. Maybe one of your kids could check a bigger TJ's in close to you to see if they have it and if they ever get the sharper or smoked versions. Good luck!

I am fond of most cheeses, have never tried Limburger and can't abide goat cheese.
Goats cheese is one of those things I wish I liked because some of the dishes sound delicious. However, just the smell of the stuff makes me heave. Smells just like goats smell. Ugh!

I have had some nice goat's milk cheese. But, I find that even the ones that are only mildly "goaty" get to be more than I want after I've eaten it for a day or three.

I think it has more to do with how old/aged the cheese is.

I like all of them at about room temperature.
Ooh, I forgot to list Manchego and Humboldt Fog. Love them!

It wouldn't have been Emmentaler would it. The Swiss variety can be very pungent.

I prefer the Allgauer Emmentaler which is quite a bit milder. Also Bierkase and Camembert are among our favorites.

No, because I've had Emmentaler and love it. The cheese I didn't like was about 2 inches by 3 inches (just a guess) dark brown/yellow rind and no holes in it. And horrible!

Thank you. Spike works out in the Newton area all the time and I know there is a TJ's in that area.

Oh Spike, dear sweet son of mine, I have an errand for you to do.

PF, I'm happy to send out our nice, creamy cheeses. I wish curds would make it to people still squeaky. They lose it after a day though ...

Addie, if you have Sam's by you, they carry several Tillamook lines (at least by us). It could be because they are actually packaged here in Wisconsin at the Marathon Cheese plant, just a short 20 miles from me.

I am not kidding when I say I am in the heart of cheese country

Sadly, when I lived in Wisconsin, I did not appreciate the wonderful cheesy bounty. Velveeta was about it for a poor college kid.
