This kind of goes hand-in-hand with a previous thread about where to buy groceries. Anyway, I've been shopping at Holman QFC for the last couple months since the 15th QFC closed. One of our family staples is cheddar cheese and we usually just get Tillamook. But the last loaf of colby/jack cheese we got from the Holman QFC a couple weeks ago had a really weird, crumbly texture that cheese gets when it's been frozen. I figured, "Ok, they froze the cheese on accident. No big deal." It didn't taste that good and the texture was weird so we didn't eat it even though it wasn't "bad" or "spoiled". But then last week I bought another loaf of Tillamook colby/jack cheese from the Holman QFC. It didn't have the weird crumbly texture but when I ate a bite of it it tasted like rancid milk! It was horrible! I gave a little piece to my husband just to make sure I wasn't imagining things he said, "Oh god! That's awful! Throw it away!" The expiration date isn't for a couple months so I don't know what they did to it.
Anyone else have nasty cheese from that store or from the Tillamook brand? It seems weird we just had two bad loaves right in a row like that. I don't know if it's Tillamook or QFC not handling it correctly.
I know I shouldn't expect much from Tillamook - it's not a gourmet cheese or anything. But that last loaf was not just "average cheese" it was really really nasty. Just curious if I just accidentally bought the only two crappy cheeses or if Tillamook is having problems or QFC on Holman is poorly handling its cheese.
