Day 71

Chipotle Gouda: Today's entry may not sound unusual compared to some of the other foods I've blogged about, but hey, I've got almost 300 more days of this project to complete. It's getting harder and harder to find new things, so I have to occasionally make foods bloggable that aren't as sensational. That being said, I was picking up some random stuff at Publix today when I saw this cheese in the deli section. I've wanted to start introducing cheeses to the blog, but they can be problematic due to the price. I don't relish the idea of spending $10 on a nice piece of imported cheese that I don't care for (or can't finish), so when I saw this sliceable cheese in the deli today, I got a few pieces to take home.
I've had plain gouda a million times, but I'd never seen this spicy chipotle version made by Boar's Head before. The guy behind the counter told me it had some heat to it, so I was looking forward to trying. I ate a slice on its own when I got home, and was pleasantly surprised. It had all of the creamy saltiness of normal gouda, but the kick from the chipotles was pretty strong in the finish. I could actually taste the pepper flavoring as well as the heat, which I didn't expect. Good stuff. It was really tasty by itself, but I'm going to try it on some sandwiches this week.

In case you're interested, I found it at the Ansley Mall Publix. Recommend.
