Dollar Makes You Holler – Manchego cheese


Sometimes when there is less risk, people tend to be more adventurous. How is this possible, you might ask? Consider: One dollar doesn’t seem like a lot of money, ergo I will buy things I normally wouldn’t, thinking that the cost is not too great.

But sometimes it is, oh sometimes it is.

I love cheese. I think that has been made plain in the numerous blog posts simultaneously mentioning it and the word “awesome.”
So when my man saw “Manchego cheese” in the 99 cent store,we said, “Why not?”

Here’s why not:

According to, “Manchego has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture, and often contains small, unevenly-distributed air pockets. The colour of the cheese varies from white to ivory-yellow, and the inedible rind from yellow to brownish beige. The cheese has a distinctive flavour, well developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight piquancy, and leaves an aftertaste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk.”

What this manchego cheese tasted like:
Soft. It had the conistency and texture of nacho cheese or Cheez Wiz, only thismuch firmer. And it tasted like them, too. When I read the above description on wikipedia, I threw up a little in my mouth.

Sometimes I think I get a little too much bang for my buck.

Manchego cheese found at the 99 Cent Store, 2560 Notre Dame Boulevard, Chico, Calif.

    When you eat it, you should call it Matabachengo cheese, because that’s what happens when you ingest it.

    Well I agree after discovery the proccess in which any cheese is made seems apoling. This however does not change its delicious taste. Please report in detail on lomalinda meats and th disgusting proccess of which makes so many people’s favorite immatation meats!! You might come to the conclusion literally nothing we eat is healthy not even our GMO crops. Ps I did apriciate you blog post keep at it. Joe

  4. I agree that many delicious items come from not-so-appealing processes; however I was unaware that such was the case with imitation meat. I do have to say though that I love me some Stripples and will continue to eat them no matter how many soy beans are maimed. 🙂
