Disgusting String Cheese

If you like wet, salty cheese, and I mean REALLY salty, then this cheese is for you.

Yep, I’ve finally tried a cheese that I don’t like. And by “don’t like”, I mean “could barely swallow it”.

String Cheese is one salty-ass cheese!

It was saltier than my mother’s black bean sauce experiment, aka The Black Bean Sauce Disaster of 1978.

To her credit, it wasn’t entirely her fault. There was a typo in the recipe which called for 1 cup of salt. She overlooked it however (totally her fault) and one taste made us feel a certain kinship with Lot’s wife, aka That Salt Chick from the bible.

Back to string cheese.

String Cheese is also wet. I have a problem with wet cheese. Like feta cheese when it’s floating disgustingly in a water filled bucket. I don’t mind feta on pizza, salad or souvlaki, but in it’s natural habitat? Stomach churning. So yeah, string cheese was already setting itself up to fail even before we met and I had a taste of it.

There are many different types of string cheeses, but the only one I could find that describes the one I tried is Slovakian Korbáčiky.

Also, the string cheese had these little dark spots on it. Before I could say anything, my friend assured me that it wasn’t mold, but seasoning.

Pro tip: If something looks like mold to you and then someone mentions that it isn’t, it probably is. And if it isn’t, the idea that it is has now been put in your head making ingestion impossible.

Strike three.

If those are spices, why aren't there more of them?
