What an excellent find !!!
SO glad the box caught your eye. thanks for posting
Any guesses on the age of the box?
I noticed a change in the cheese ratios sometime early to mid 90's. The cheddar was more visually obvious than it currently is but didn't notice much in the way of a flavor change. So I had been wondering if part of the cheddar was white cheddar. So maybe they just upgraded to Sharp cheddar and reduced the overall amount.
Funny about the smoke flavor...I always felt that the pepperoni was the primary culprit because the smoked provelone brands I've used always overwhelmed everthing else when I've tried to use it. Guess I'll keep trying out more brands.
