Salty string cheese in brine

A couple years ago in west island mtl. I bought this cheese in brine in a jar. I know very random, but it was really good. Anyone know what I am talking about/ where I can find it in Toronto?

  1. Never seen it in a jar, but I have seen salty string cheese at Grande cheese. It was in a vac pac and the cheese was twisted up like a figure 8. I wish I could remember the brand ...sorry. It was close to where the boconccini are at the Richmond Hill Grande.

    1. Try Highland Farms. Also not sure about the jar part, but they do sell an Armenian string cheese that I think did come from Montreal and it was massively salty. I had to soak it in water in order to eat it. It has nigella seeds in it. I have to say I like the Armenian string cheese in the US (Wegman's) much better because it is not so incredibly salty.

      1. You can buy that sort of cheese at some mid-eastern stores, such as ARZ on Lawrence Ave, east of Pharmacy.
