The following are my own thoughts and experiences on the product.

Buffalo chicken and blue cheese are a match made in heaven, but the downfall of this tasty treat is that it is usually messy, very messy! Most places if you order a Buffalo Chicken sandwich it is served with blue cheese or ranch dressing, blue cheese crumbles, or some other cheese (American? What – come again?) The dressings are messy and get everywhere, the crumbles roll everywhere if not melted and it’s uneven and well, come on if you’re going to use cheese it should be blue cheese!

Buffalo Chicken With Castello Burger Blue Cheese #castello #GotItFree Problem Solved!

In one slice of cheese, Castello Burger Blue Cheese solves all those problems! The creamy slice of strong blue cheese is a uniform thickness and fits on a standard size sandwich bun with enough to hang over the edges. The meltage factor was really good in that it did not melt completely into the sandwich, but melted enough to keep everything together and you could still see and taste it.

The Castello Burger Blue Cheese is a quality slice of blue cheese, there is no doubt when you taste it. That said, we had enough chicken and plenty of cheese to have this meal for two nights, and the first night we used a whole slice of cheese = Good, but very overwhelming to the overall sandwich. The second night, we opted to use half a slice and it was perfect in taste and coverage.

Cost?

I was provided with a $6 coupon for this particular package of cheese, but at Giant Eagle it cost $7.99. Other reviewers paid $4.99 and up, so depending on where you live or shop your price may vary. The price is just a bit more expensive than buying a wedge of the same style of cheese. The slices are convenient and much less work than trying to get crumbles onto a sandwich.

Cheesy Tip

Remove your cheese from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before topping. It is easier to keep a slice of slightly room temperature cheese vs. cold slices, and it tastes better! Do not be surprised if some of the slices fall apart even with the paper separators.
