@DIANE - The cheese arrives at our stores being made in a gluten free facility at Cypress Grove. The stores receive the cheese in large rounds and then slice smaller pieces in-house. Our stores are not a dedicated gluten free facility due to possible cross contamination. Ask a team member in the Specialty department for a gluten free recommendation, they'll be happy to help!

Happy Anniversary! Humboldt Fog is OUT of this world! It is at the top of my favorite cheese list and ALL faves are from this amazing company. I am a little sad to realize I missed the first 10 years of production. Another reviewer mentioned individual-sized wheels - sounds like a great idea to me (shopping for one). It also might save me potential embarrassment of being caught scraping and licking the plastic wrap when the slice is gone...May you enjoy many more years of success!

I first had this cheese last week in NOLA. It was amazing....i don't even like most cheeses with any sort of bite! This however was a perfect blend of creamy and strong. Well done

Unfortunately I have only been exposed to this diamond in the rough for a short period. I'm in love. I crave it. At first, I thought it was a blue and goat blend, but when discovered otherwise, it didn't change my opinion one bit. The creaminess of the edges resembles beautiful Brie while the guts contain the rich subtle boldness of the magical goats milk. There couldn't be anything closer to heaven than this cheese. Just purchased my first pound and am a very happy girl.

Total convert. Had dinner at Umamicatessan in Downtown LA. Noticed the cheeses on the burgers - they all sounded yummy. So it was a no brainer when I came across the cheese plate on the menu - had to order it! Humbolt Fog melted in my mouth...... spent today looking for a shop to buy! Thank you.....

Unquestionably, the best chevre (especially Humboldt Fog!) made in the USA!!!! Been buying it at Whole Foods since they started stocking it years ago. The product has been consistently superiort, and comparable to the bery best French chevre produced. One bad experience only, a week ago when I bought some Humboldt Fog at your Speedway store in Tucson and I discovered at home that the product was old, dry, chalky and out of date. Bad news: your store manager never responded to my complaint email and when I called he barely offered an apology; Good news: When I contacted Cypress Grove directly, they apologized and sent me a complimentary replacement. Cyress Grove is a class act! It would be nice if someone at Whole Foods was as responsive and customer friendly!
