Taste Test: Blue Cheese

Photo: Randy Mayor
We tested 8 precrumbled blue cheeses and 5 precrumbled Gorgonzola cheeses in two blind taste tests.

Two distinctive choices that pack a punch

FAVORITE BLUE: Whole Foods Market Blue Cheese Crumbles, $3.99 (6 ounces)
This is a big, bold blue—a little goes a long way—but it's balanced and versatile enough to top anything from veggie tarts to steaks. The luxuriously creamy texture makes it feel freshly crumbled, perfect for melting. 100 calories, 6g sat fat, and 380mg sodium per ounce
Also good: Boar's Head Creamy Crumbled Blue Cheese

FAVORITE GORGONZOLA: Salemville Amish Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles, $3.99 (4 ounces)
A wonderfully creamy Gorgonzola with full-on flavor and enticing salt crystals. It's moderately pungent and nutty, yet slightly sweet. If you didn't know any better, you might think it was artisanal. 100 calories, 5g sat fat, and 260mg sodium per ounce
