Pet Peeve: Trader Joe's Cheese

This guy is right on the Money:
Cheese is scary at all Trader Joe’s. They tend to mold after a week, which I've complained about for 10 years because it means that they're NOT cleaning their cutting surfaces. There's nothing like a little Stilton mold in your Cheddar or Swiss. The employees agree, but nothing's ever been done about it. -- Trader Joe's: The Good, the Bad, and the Dearly Departed | The Daily Meal

Your Say

I'm confused. As long as you have a house Negro to dispatch for your Two Buck Chuck, why would you set foot in a Trader Joe's in the first place?

Ahem. Because Two Buck Chuck is now Three and Four Buck Chuck. Serious money.

I was wondering about that V, but there's no inflation. As for me, I get my twenty lb wheels from Costco.

Never had any problem with TJ cheese.

I often cut the cheese, myself. Ripe, yes, but never moldy.

As long as we're talking about TJ's, I noticed they no longer carry ground bison or ground venison, or even grass-fed beef; at lest, not in my area.

What happened, did the Vegans and PETA threaten their families or something?

TJs isn't terribly convenient to us, but when we're in the neighborhood, we do drop in and grab a thing or two.

But every time I'm there, I wonder: Is it possible that both the NEA teachers and the hippies can shop in one place, or are the teachers just hippies who have gone legit?
