Colby cheese is disgusting

Like an idiot I bought 500g of pre sliced Colby cheese. Ugh. Bland, fatty and unctuous. Any ideas about how to make it taste better? I thought of adding a bit of Parmesan to a grilled cheese to disguise the taste but am otherwise out of ideas.

All cheese is disgusting. Serving curdled milk to your kids would get them removed by Child Protective Services

I don’t like the taste of some food I bought.

The best way to make Colby taste better …..,,,chuck it in the garbage.

I'd not eat it. That's too many calories for something you don't like.

Next time, get sharp cheddar.

I have to agree, OP. .. I've never understood what Colby Cheese is good for. .. Hate it. .. And this report from Wikipedia makes it sound like it may have been an accident .. lol!

[quote] In 1882, Ambrose and Susan Steinwand established a cheese factory near Colby, Wisconsin, on a 160-acre (65 ha) site they had purchased five years before. The Steinwands' son JOSEPH developed the cheese at the factory in 1885 when he was handling a batch of cheddar cheese and washed the curd with cold water. There are differing accounts on whether the creation was intentional.

In business, there is a notable and important tool called a sunk cost. If it's disgusting, no matter what you try to do with it, you've already spent the money.

Just toss it.

No sense throwing good money after bad. Don't ruin Parmesan cheese with that Colby.

I live in the UK. We don’t have Colby cheese though once we strike a post-Brexit trade deal with the U.S. we probably will.

Thin it in a double boiler with some milk, and make nachos. The taste of the jalapeños, onions, celantro, salsa and chili will add the flavor you need

I would take an American processed cheddar - for melting or otherwise - over Colby any day

Originally from Wisconsin, so it’s state law that I like Colby cheese.

It’s great on whole grain crackers though. The best Colby is a little salty and crumbly.

At least it's not Velveeta, which is not actual cheese, but rather "cheese-like" solidified oil.

Cheese that is too 'cheesy' and fish that tastes too 'fishy'.

by Anonymousreply 23January 15, 2022 12:34 AM

Cats might like it. In my experience, they don't like stronger cheeses like sharp cheddar but are partial to American cheese -- Colby is pretty close to American. But a cat shouldn't eat very much cheese at once, just a few small bites (that's probably true for dogs too). You can freeze cheese until you're ready to use it.

R32 Cheddar is not regarded as a particularly strong tasting cheese anywhere (even extra mature), using something even milder and more watery is just adding a pointless fat to your diet.

by Anonymousreply 34January 15, 2022 1:47 AM

I second the idea of cutting it into small pieces and eating with especially dry ones like Triscuits. Colby is also okay with salted nuts and fruit. It's pretty bland, but it is moist at least.

An Asian coworker once told me that when he first ate cheese he threw up. It's the stuff we're raised to eat. Another coworker who lived in Japan made a typical Japanese, I don't know what you'd call it, tapas maybe. It was a selection of nibbles. I never saw anything like it. It tasted great, but the difference between Western and Asian food I found fascinating.

I mention oyster sauce to white people and they cringe. I find that refreshing. But after working w/so many Asians and Filipinos for so long, their cooking ingredients has settled into my life. You just don't want to know how real fish sauce is made. Ever.

No, as per OP it’s bland. If only Colby had the sweetness of havarti or the sharpness of aged cheddar.

As a native Wisconsinite, I've always found colby to be nothing more than an oilier, blander version of cheddar. Cojack, which is marbled colby and monterey jack, is also common in state but not much better. I suppose either is fine for melting, but the flavor just isn't there.

But Colby is bland, r43. If only it were a “decent flavorful” cheese. But it’s like diet cheddar with added sucralose.

Give me Gorgonzola or stinky wash rind any day.

You have a pound of the stuff, which is a fair amount. Offer it to a friend and neighbor. Just say you have too much of it.

If you're determined to use it up, I would combine it 50/50 with a cheese you like and make cheese soup, mac and cheese, quiche, or nachos. Try the 50/50 blend in something small like an omelet. If you still hate the taste, give it away or dump it.

by Anonymousreply 59January 19, 2022 9:55 AM

It would work in a sandwich with roast beef or ham if paired with a really strong condiment like horseradish mustard.
