Day 17 - Mozzarella Cheese Chub

We go through a lot of cheese in our house, the majority of which is cheddar.  But this mozzarella also gets a fair bit of play from us, especially in SUMMER GARDEN SEASON.  Oh yeah – there is nothing better than a big, red, juicy, fresh garden tomato topped by a thick chunk of this mozzarella, add to that a couple of just picked basil leaves, top with extra virgin olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice, and coarse salt.  That, my friends, is the taste of summer.  So now you know how we use this cheese J.
Note:  if it is not summer, or if you do not grow tomatoes, pair this with Trader Joe’s Kumatoes (see review from this blog, day 5).
This is the one we get - 8 oz is a good size
 Pros :

  • Tasty
  • Soft
  • Reasonably priced
  • Almost always available at Trader Joe’s
  • A good size


  • Tricky to open, and when you do open it – messy.  Mozzarella water gushes out so only open it over the sink. 
  • Not possible to store in original packaging, so have a little storage container ready when you open it.
  • Goes stale quickly if you do not use it within a few days (probably because all of the mozzarella water stuff plops out of the packaging when you open it so is not in the storage container to keep it moist).

Price - $3.29
Rating – 4 stars
