  1. I’m surprised it took them this long to figure out they could sell them. Long ago my brother was a cheesemonger for Whole Foods in DC. He said he wouldn’t recommend using the rinds because the wheels got filthy rolling around the store and warehouse. But then, my grandpa always said, “Eh, you eat a peck of dirt in your life.”

      Nothing says extra flavor like warehouse floor dirt!! Love the insight there, and it explains why the taste is so nuanced. 🙂

      I was thinking, with the amount of pre-grated cheese they sell, it is a wonder they’ve not sold the rinds before.
