    Default Delice de st Faron: Triple Cream

    It appears that Delice de Bourgogne has been replaced at CostCo by
    Delice de St Faron. It's cheaper at $10 for a 19oz wheel as opposed
    to $11/lb for the Bourgnone, but I'd rather have the Bourgogne back.
    There's hardly any info about St Faron cheese on the web. They are
    a fairly new FDA-approved exporter of cheese to the US.

    St Faron does not have the slight ripe culture taste and is
    one-dimensional in texture. The texture is consistently a whipped
    butter texture, without any creaminess. It melts in your mouth just
    fine and dandy, but with Bourgogne you had a section of the cheese
    that was already melting, and gradually it turned into a more solid
    form like the whipped butter, all of which was much smoother and
    refreshing in the mouth. St Faron is just too uniform. The
    difference in texture is like generic ice cream vs. Haagen Dazs.

    St Faron is covered with that same fuzzy packing material as on brie
    that gives me the willies, whereas the Bourgogne was foil wrapped as
    they do with ripe cheeses. They both have an optionally-edible
    rind, but the Bourgonges was more edible - more pungent due to the
    mold cultures.

    As far as cheeses go, with a 5 being "Edible":

    Delice de Bourgogne 9.7
    Delice de Saint Faron 7.9

    Hopefully they'll bring back the Bourgogne.

    I'm sorry to hear this as I am a fan of the Bourgogne. `Costco does have a
    good selection of cheese, better for the most part than I can get locally
    elsewhere. My main gripe is that they provide no creamy blue cheese. I
    don't care for crumbly blue. While not a blue, the Bourgogne was my go-to
    for a creamy cheese. I suppose that Alan, living over in Costco's home
    town, has a whole bunch of good cheese to select from.

    Try I think the Thursday Austin farmer's market for
    <http://www.houstondairymaids.com/>
    You might also try Phoenicia and Specs, they both do fairly well in the
    cheese department, rather than the costco factory stuff.
