“ Brand: Lowells / Type: Cheese „
Salami cheese is a type of Polish cheese that is also exported to and packaged by Lowells in America, I've never tried the Lowells one but the original version in Poland that supposedly is exactly the same is a cheese that comes in a long cylinder shape and is therefore generally found in awkwardly shaped smaller versions that have at least one rounded side.
Tastewise it's not bad, not as bland as most of its contemporaries, it has a hint of smokiness but I wouldn't go as far as saying it tasted like a true smoked cheese, whilst it retains the rubbery plastic feel that so many of its competitors has, it's definitely not devoid of taste, it has a distinctly subtle cheesy taste in the same way that Edam does. I find it hard to cut small pieces of it, admittedly I don't have one of those trendy cheese slicer things but due to its bouncy texture it seems hard to get a hold of a small amount with a knife and I find myself chopping off rather chunky portions which are fine when it comes to sandwhiches but need longer to melt if you are making a toastie.
All in all, not bad at all and usually very cheap. As far as typical yellow coloured semi-hard cheese made of cow's milk goes, this is fairly good but I prefer a soft cheese, thus the 3 star rating.
