I went to my local Ralphs “Fresh Fare” supermarket. I got some staple foods, the usual stuff. And wandering back to the register I passed the display for the Boar’s Head deli stuff. Boar’s Head mostly makes overpriced lunchmeat, which is fine as far as that goes. Now they’ve branched out into highfalutin cheese. I like cheese. They had a number of things that looked good, including Double Gloucester which is one of my favorite cheeses. Imported from England and everything. Yay, I said!
I took it home and opened it up. As far as I could tell it was the blandest, mildest California “cheddar” or Colby or Longhorn. Totally flavorless, waxy rubbery texture. Not Double Gloucester at all. It was, in fact, cheese fraud.
Boycott Boar’s Head!
(This is a cheese shop, is it not?)
