Hidden Blocks of Gems in Whole Foods

Although I find Whole Foods expensive to grocery shop regularly, I shop there at least once a month because there’s an area where mommies and their babies hang out around lunch time (the Cambie location).   It’s a great way to meet other mommies (especially the ‘Lululemommies‘)  if you are the social type.  But I found another great reason to shop there… the Cheese Ends section!

The Cheese Ends section is found near the blocks of cheese section in the fridge area.  I love to try different cheeses but don’t want to spend $10+ on a new cheese.  The Cheese ends are smaller blocks, probably leftovers from the large blocks being cut into popular sellable wedges.   It’s in a small basket and there are many different cheeses around the price range of $1.50 – $3.00.  The sizes are enough to make a cheese plate to share and definely enough for you to decide whether that cheese is for you.   At that price, I managed to pick up a couple of cheese to try on Patch’s burgers and as snacks.
