Brand new member here, though I've been reading various forums for about a month as a guest. Y'all have really helped direct me to some great tips, brands, etc. The Whole Foods here in KC carried Polly-O [low moisture] at about $6 lb up until last week. I am new at using whole milk mozz [thanks to this site] and found the Polly-O freakin' great. I went back to WF this week to grab another pound and they told me they no longer carry the Polly-O!!! They instead were replacing it with "California Gold".
Well, I bought a pound last night of the CG and it was pretty damn good.
!) $3.29 lb
2) Shredded similarly to the Polly-O, though a bit dryer and not quite as lofty
3) It was a bit saltier when I tried it pre-pizza, but I did not notice that in the pizza
4) it melted as wonderfully as the Polly-O and was damn close in flavor; not as rich as the Polly-O but close
Anybody tried this brand?
This whole milk mozz newbie ordered a 6lb loaf of Grande from Vern's. Should be here within a day or two. Seeing the opinions here, that was either a good or bad spend ;^)
Thanks to all you folks that share their opinions and experiances. I've learned a lot from this group in a relatively short time.
