Trader Joes: Surprisingly good inexpensive cheeses

Not being able to get to Formaggio's, and requiring a replenishment of cheese, I thought I'd pick up the quite good English cheddar TJ's usually carries. They were out (a frequent problem is the complete disappearance of something you've become attached to at TJ's). So I brought home an aged extra sharp cheddar from Wales, a "comparator" aged sharp from Vermont, and some ripe looking Delice de Bourgogne. They were all good to very good and I believe the most expensive one was 9.99 a pound. I'm impressed.

  1. I love the Unexpected Cheddar. They also have Boursin at a great price and Greek Feta in brine.

        Same link as above and yes I also have plenty of agreement

          So good (the choices @ TJ's) it bears repeating :)

          The price of Delice de Bourgogne is worth the trip.

              My pleasure, kewpie.

              I noticed recently that ShopRite has started carrying the Delice de Bourgogne. Their 'gourmet' cheese shop has grown and grown and they also take requests. Which means I can save a bundle on some cheese I have bought at WFs. But, TJ's & Aldi when you can score some of their special cheeses are still the champs on price.

      2. If it's that good, then I guess 10 bucks ain't bad.

        1. ShopRite now carries Delice de Bourgogne in 2 oz to 16 oz sizes at an even better price than TJ;s.
