Which really sucks, because I imagine myself a novice foodie.
I have to say something, though. Four year old cheddar is NOT a treat. It's like eating expensive sour feet. It's crumbly and bitter and it really does taste old.
I'd rather have the Wegmans extra sharp Vermont. That's right. The generic. The stuff that's about three bucks a pound. It's creamy, it has just the right bite, and would you know, I don't have budget guilt about eating it.
Unlike the expensive treat we had last night.
SO not worth the money. Not even a little bit. Eight solid dollars a pound for cheddar that's older than at least two of my children, and I regretted every crumbly, funky bite.
Lesson learned, I think. Until next time.
