very different
By Carol Harris

We haven't ever had anything like this before! I heated it up in the microwave like it suggested on the instructions and to my surprise it held it's shape and was still sturdy enough to slice while it was hot. It was kind of chewy and a little salty but had a nice mild flavor. I couldn't get it to the point of being spreadable or even "dipable". I used it on baked potatoes and also rolled it up in ham slices with a tortilla as a snack for my grandson. The instructions said it was good with both savory and sweet but I don't think I'd use this with sweets.

A Unique Cheese
By Sandra Farrar

I just received an order for cheese that I have had before and cheese that I never had. Brun-uusto Bread Cheese is one I have never had but I kept seeing this name and reading about it so I gave it a try. I am very happy to say that after trying it I loved it. It is quite unique and did I mention tasty as well. This will be in my orders going forward as well as adding it to my gift orders. The entire package of all the cheeses I purchased came in excellent condition and was still quite cool so all in all a very good experience.
