Apparently people who will like this cheese must have a salty tooth. Okay, I crapped that out but it is waaaaaaaaay too salty! ( I tried it with a couple of cream crakers.)
It has a distinctive flavor of smokiness which very much resembles the taste of smoked turkey ham. Best used to spice up, I mean, salt up a bland salad bowl.
Also great for vegetarians who wants a cheesy alternative for ham and bacon in their lunchbox.
4 out of 10… hmm.. i don’t think i’ll bother trying this one. O_o!!!
Can you tell me what exactly is meant by Vegetarian/Calves Rennet? Is it vegetarian or is it calves rennet or is it both? What do they mean? I am vegetarian and would really like to know. Thanks
