Trader Joe's Sliced Provolone Cheese
On the rare occasions that I go to a submarine sandwich shop, provolone is among my favorite cheeses to accompany slices of turkey on my sub. These days, I never make meat sandwiches for myself at home, but I do eat cheese pretty regularly on crackers as a late-night snack. I had never tried provolone for this purpose.
These slices are not especially convenient used this way, since they're sandwich-sized. That's not the fault of the product, obviously, but in retrospect I would have been better off buying a block of provolone instead of slices.
Nothing on the label identifies which sub-type of provolone this is, but it struck me as high in sharpness--a little too high, in fact, edging into bitterness. I was not a fan. I prefer milder forms.
Will I buy it again?
