Kirkland Brand Blue cheese- source?

zinfanatic Jan 27, 2012 01:17 PM

Most of the remaining cheese that was branded now is KIrkland brand. As an Example today I saw the Kirkland Brand blue cheese that came in similar package as Point Reyes cheese . This cheese was branded Kirkland and said on the label "made in an Artisan style" in America. The point Reyes sold for $9.99 and this cheese sold for $4.49. Does anyone know the source of this cheese?

    I have been purchasing the Point Reyes cheese for some time. I decided to buy the Kirkland blue cheese. It is not very good. It does not crumble well and is very waxy and sour. I am not purchasing it again.

      The package says made in Wisconsin. II would not appear to be Point Reyes Blue.

        If the cheese seems the same it might be the same. Private-label products often cost less than half what the brand-name versions cost. http://pointreyescheese.com/
