A woman at Trader Joe's asked if they still sold a certain kind of chips. Nothing but respect for the cashier that said, "No. You'll never see those again."

This nice worker at Safeway asked if she could help me find anything during my 3rd circle of the cheese island in the deli section. I hopefully replied "Jarlsberg?" She laughed & told me "yeah, you and everybody else."

It’s funny cuz on the east coast Jarlsberg is everywhere but on the west coast you would think it’s a rare delicacy. Which would kind of make sense if it was actually imported from Norway, but the stuff sold in the US is made in Ohio. 🤷‍♂️

For a few months now I think the huge port backups & shipping delays plus supply chain issues have been effing up our Jarlsberg. We have our own CA-made baby swiss. I just really liked that one wedge-packaged Ohio Jarlsberg that was supposedly blessed by Norway.

Haha right?? I feel you. It’s not the same. But even pre pandemic I always felt like it was harder to find and more expensive out there. But on the plus side, the quality and variety of blue cheeses was way better out west, a trade I was happy to make.

went to the grocery today and, since this convo is still going on here, had to take this pic of the blue cheese selection. Also open to an east coast block cheese 4 west coast blue exchange, tho haven't thought out the particulars on how that'd work..

Haha! Dinner inspired by this whole discussion- went with St Agurs blue on a salad with apples and toasted walnuts. Not going to lie, it was pretty damn good.
