Over the past year or so, I've noticed that Sam's has really expanded their imported cheese selections. I must admit, this evening I was quite impressed by their variety and the uniqueness of their selections. I found so many that I wanted to try and ended up picking up a few new unusual flavors. The first one that caught my eye was a beautiful red wax covered heart shaped chunk of English Wensleydale cheese with strawberries and cream. Then my eye went to another chunk of Irish cheddar cheese with blueberries. Oh no, then I saw some artisan Monterey jack cheese from Wisconsin with spinach and artichokes. Well, I stood there hemming and hawing, and couldn't decide which one to try...so I just grabbed all 3! LOL.
I also noticed that they were now carrying some of my favorite uncured imported Italian meats by Fiorucci. I love their uncured pepperoni that I find at Sprouts. I picked up a double package of miniature Milano salami made with wine and some Abruzzese (a spicy dry Italian sausage). They are the perfect size to enjoy with cheese and crackers (grain-free crackers, of course)...or maybe put on pizza in place of pepperoni. I snapped a few photos of some of this evening's interesting finds below. I also included a picture of the "NuttZo" I picked up a few weeks ago at Costco. I haven't tried it yet, but it's probably appropriately named NuttZo because this little jar was almost $18.00! Suppose that's why they named it NuttZo? Well...once I try it, I'll let you know just how NuttZo it really is! Lastly, tell me if the cute little heart shaped cheese doesn't steal your heart too! ;-) Enjoy!
