Robiola Bosina – a seriously good soft cheese

So, this Robiola Bosina cheese is nice, man.  I was pleasantly surpised.  Picked it up at Gourmet Garage on sale for $14.99 a pound – yeah, on sale.  Normal price is $24.99 a pound.  Not cheap.

But man is it good.  Melt in your mouth softness, a nice smooth taste.  I wolfed my little brick down by itself and with apples.  Not your typical apple cheese, but wow.  I guess, since it’s so soft, you’d more likely be spreading it on crackers or bread.  But still, just fine with apples.  The taste is like a great vanilla ice cream, but without the vanilla flavor, and it isn’t really gonna melt.  Does that make sense?

It’s a mixture of cow’s milk and sheep’s milk, comes from Northern Italy.  High fat content, which may explain the awesome taste.  So who cares??

Looking around the web, looks like the 8oz brick normally goes for around $15.  Maybe Gourmet Garage isn’t above pulling a fast one with deceptive sale pricing signs.
