We called cheese that came from a wheel “hoop” cheese. I miss the days where you could find it on convenience store counters with a glass cover over it. You just cut what you wanted, the clerk wrapped it in wax paper. Good stuff. Was it just us West Virginians??
i just had a slice of hoop cheese yesterday, most gas stations around here have a basket by the register, and most of the baskets are hard to keep filled up !!
i was raised on hoop cheese, best to let it sit on the counter, at room temps, no worries of going bad, it wont last that long !
little mom and pop store up the road from me has it in sandwich size slices, about a 1/4″ thick, now that makes for a hellacious cheeseburger
