yeah, this stuff is the bomb...

Bought it in the smaller size can so I could decide before I bought an entire case: I tried it right out of the can without adding water and it was delicious!
I will be buying the larger #10 cans now, it cooks up great too... just let the water absorb for a couple of minutes or it won't melt in the pan like it should ;)

Fantastic taste, but price is extremely high for the quantity

I sampled this in-store and was shocked at how normal this tasted. I LOVE cheese, but it has to be GOOD cheese. If it was not so expensive, I would use this much, much more in my everyday cooking.

This stuff blew me away

I just tried this cheese out tonight and it absolutely blew me away. I am pretty picky and will NOT tell you that something tastes like fresh when it doesn't but I could not tell the difference! I put it on top of a casserole that I normally use fresh shredded cheese for and I was just so surprised how it behaved and tasted just like regular! I will definitely be buying this one again.
