Patricia...the jumbo eggs price is exactly the same here; I usually only buy cantaloupe when they are on sale at a set price instead of by weight.  I haven't bought beef or pork in years....no money.  It's chicken on sale or nothing.  Same for Kraft products (I didn't even know they made p-nut butter)...right now their sliced natural cheeses are on sale, so I ordered Chipotle Cheddar and Colby Jack...$3 for 7.5 oz each.  (It does p*ss me off that food processors sell lower weights than they used to, at the old price.  ie: 3 pints of ice cream at the price they used to sell a half gallon....or the 7.5 oz cheeses.   Cheeses Krisp!  We're getting ripped off everywhere.)

I iz iggerant...I don't know how many grams to an ounce.

Kathy, I can't drink alcohol anymore either. I loved the flavor and the little buzz. When I drink it now one of my organs gives a kick in the rib that takes all the pleasure out of the drink. The kids had some locally brewed beer at our Yule celebration and they gave me sips. They were just splendid. The sips didn't hurt.

Thanks Joan. I had never bothered looking it up.
Spud, I eat very little so that makes most things affordable. I think the round of goulda is 4.48 for 7 ozs. It will last for at least three weeks.
Like Randy I enjoyed it with wine. But I can't drink alcohol anymore. Sad face.

Funny stuff people!

Patricia, I love Gruyere for melting cheese and have not had Applewood Smoked Cheddar. I'll look for it in our cheese case next time I'm at Rosauer's.

Chris, "Gouda is a Dutch yellow cheese made from cow's milk. It is named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands. One of the most popular cheeses worldwide."  "The first mention of Gouda cheese dates from 1184, making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses in the world still made today."

" it develops a caramel sweetness and has a slight crunchiness from cheese crystals, especially in older cheeses."

~ Wikipedea

It is really very good. a nice nip, somewhat soft.

Just got that Garfield in my email.....cute.

Cheese is expensive so its a treat to buy some of them. Our price on everything is quite a bit higher than yours.

Gouda:  With my limited income, I haven't bought any for such a long time, I've forgotten what it tastes like.  I think I liked it.

I don't remember eating Gruyere, and sure I've not eaten any Applewood Smoked Cheddar.  Now that I've managed to stop dipping into my overdraft account, I'll try some cheeses I've not tasted before.  Also some I've forgotten, like Gouda.

The cheese I eat most of the time is Tillamook pepper jack because it has a combination of good taste and relatively low price.   My second choice is Tillamook extra sharp cheddar.

We've taken a liking to Gruyere & Applewood Smoked Cheddar.
