Trader Joe's Dutch Smoked Cheese

I don't know why this isn't called a smoked Gouda; Gouda appears not to be one of those protected variety names. But it sure tastes like a smoked Gouda--a good one at that.

Will I buy it again? 

Yes. I love me a good smoked (non-) Gouda.


  1. I was at TJs earlier today and was looking for this to bring to a party tomorrow and there were so many gouda cheeses! There were slices of smoked gouda, a not smoked double cream gouda (?), regular gouda and this one! Yeesh. I picked up this one as well as the double cream gouda and a few others from your favorites. (I picked up kite hill cheese for the two of us lactose challenged, it’s amazing nut based cheese)

  2. It's not Gouda it's Maasdam which is more like a Swiss cheese. But to me it seemed like a good compromise.
