Guest Post: Do You Know this Cheese?

March 6th, 2013 · 6 Comments

[I’ve got another fellow Costco fan, Sheri, with a product question that we’re both hoping someone here can answer.  I’m sure someone else remembers this product and will surely be able to come up with a brand and some other information for Sheri.  So if you have a name or any information about this, please leave a comment!]

I’m hoping you can help me.  About a year ago, I purchased a hard cheese at Costco.  It was a white, brick cheese and it was marked “reduced fat” (or “low fat”).  It was amazing.  I believe it was imported and had a French-sounding name.  I haven’t seen it in about a year. When I asked my Costco manager about it, she couldn’t recall the name but knew what I was talking about and said it only came in around the holidays.  I looked several times this past year and it never showed up.  That manager is no longer at my Costco, and now, no one seems to know what I’m talking about.  I emailed Costco’s corporate office and they said that without a name, they can’t help me.  Of course, it’s the name  of the cheese that I’m trying to identify.  Does it sound like something you’ve ever seen before?

    I bet its the comte. It comes from a region called Franche-comte and the specific county (or department” in french terms) is called Jura. there its used for everything from sandwiches and fondue. They have it in some of the southern california costcos andits usually beside the gruyere. Its an unusual cheese for america, its hard to get. We were very surprised to see it here.

    Entre Mont Comté Cheese comes in a wedge at Costco. I’ll ask the Deli stocker on Monday when I return to work. It sounds familiar; I think the stocker would know. I’ll respond here soon, either way.

    Take your membership card to the returns counter, as they will be able to review every purchase made on your card. They are able to search by Department, and will be able to find the receipt and let you know the name of the cheese…

    I remember this cheese as well, and would also love to know the name. It was great.
