The Great Blue Cheese Conspiracy

I’ve concluded that blue cheese hates me.

I’ve been on the hunt for the Laughing Cow Light Blue Cheese wedges for a few months now. All the stores that used to carry them no longer do: Ralphs, Vons, Vons Pavilions, Walmart, Target — you name it, I’ve visited it. The lack of wedgery has been wreaking havoc in my kitchen. How am I supposed to make waistline-friendly wings without the stuff?

My solution about six weeks ago was to use light blue cheese dressing. Easy-peasy, right? Sure. Until you can’t find that stuff, either.

Bob’s Lite Bleu Cheese Dressing & Dip ended up being my go-to, and a solid choice it was. Now that I’m out of it here at home, I figured I’d stock up again.

If only it was that easy.

I went to a store nearby to snag some. Nope, only the regular was in stock. Went to another store a few more miles away, and they had two jars: one was already expired (meh!) and one was expiring in two days (double meh!).

I smell a conspiracy.

I’m not sure what to think about this. I’ve made my own blue cheese dressing before and, while delicious, it’s sort of a process — not to mention it yields a quantity that I wouldn’t burn through that quickly.

Triple meh.

I suppose at the end of the day this might be a case of the culinary gods nudging me to try something else. I’ve long loved blue cheese — crumbles, wedge salads, as a dip, to bathe in (kidding, natch) — but maybe it’s time to branch out. Maybe? Maybe. We’ll see.

In the meantime, if you find any Laughing Cow wedges for me, I do accept deliveries.
