I ordered a block of Grande Mozzarella from Pennsylvania Macaroni Company on Tuesday. It just arrived via UPS. I opened the box as soon as the UPS man delivered it.
The box contained two dry ice blocks, both of which had evidently long since melted. They and the cheese were only slightly cool to touch. However, the cheese appears to be pretty mushy for at least a good inch or so, all around.
What I'm wondering is should I return the block and ask for a replacement, or will the cheese still be good? I'm just concerned that the heat will affect the taste of the cheese.
Is this usually a problem in the summer season? I've ordered two blocks from Pennsylvania Macaroni in the past few months, and I've been happy with the other two blocks. However, the temperature outside wasn't as hot as it has been the past couple of days (80 to 85 degrees).
