Whether you love or hate blue cheese, it doesnt matter. A friend or loved one will ask you to buy fresh blue cheese one day. You scratch your head and ask, Where on earth would I find the stores that carry the types of blue cheese my honey wants?
Believe it or not, it can be challenging to buy fresh blue cheese. Here are some reasons why:
1. Some people love it. Some people hate it. Grocery stores do not want the smell of, say, the English blue cheese that your wife wants, to drive away half of their customers.
2. See those streaks of blue that make blue cheese blue? Yes, those are molds. Theyre deliberately put there. The thing is, grocery stores can be uncomfortable with molds on their frozen shelves.
3. Alright, your favorite store may be an exception. But blue cheese is a niche product and theyre selling other stuff too! Chances are strong that they do not carry all the types of blue cheese in your shopping list.
4. What about quality in general? Grocery stores tend to cater to as wide a customer base as possible. Theres a strong chance that the blue cheese on the freezers are low-priced commercial type that make you doubt whether its up to your discriminating taste.
Thus, it can be a real challenge to find the kind of blue cheese that you really want. Once you find it, their distance from your home can possibly be daunting.
5. Lastly, what about freshness? Grocery stores are not usually known for fresh stuff. In fact, to them, the fewer fresh stuff they have, the better it is for their bottom line.
