Trader Joe's Raw Milk Smoked Cheddar Cheese
A smoky cheddar cheese was the first cheese I can remember really liking as a child. Because of the sensory memory of that, it's possible that I feel more fondness for this cheese than I would if I were evaluating it absent such nostalgia. But I do like it. It's mild yet flavorful. Of all the kinds of cheese I've bought from TJ's, this one slices the best with no crumbling, which makes it the easiest to pair neatly with crackers. It's not my absolute favorite (that title still goes to cheddar & guyere melange), but it's definitely one of the better ones--distinct, not just another ho-hum cheddar.
Will I buy it again?
