Trader Joe’s Raw Milk Blue Cheese

On Easter Sunday, The Man requested Lettuce Wedge Salad to go with the steaks he planned to grill. That meant The Lady would make the Blue Cheese Dressing. When she went to the cheese cupboard, it was bare, but she promised to bring home a wedge of Black River Gorgonzola to use in her recipe.

As happens in the cheesemines, The Lady got busy and forgot to buy the cheese for the dressing. Rather than disappoint The Man, she stopped at Trader Joe’s to pick up a wedge. It was Easter and there was little choice on the shelves. She went for their own brand of Raw Milk Blue Cheese thinking it must be good; after all it had their name on the label.

Well… as it turns out, The Lady was wrong… this blue cheese had almost no flavor… something this Feline Foodie thought was impossible… doesn’t blue cheese always have flavor? Isn’t that somewhere in the blue cheese making contract: “Will have flavor”.  But not this time. To call this cheese bland would be doing a dis-service to all the bland cheeses of the world.

The Lady is a big fan of Trader Joe’s in general, but she made a promise to The Man and me… no more Trader Joe’s brand cheeses…

I give Trader Joe’s Raw Milk Blue Cheese 1 limp Paw out of 4 Paws (cause I don’t have less than 1). It won’t kill ya; but neither will it thrill ya…

Serving Suggestions: Mixed with Roquefort, this cheese might not mess up your dressing; but other than that…  I got nothin’…
