    It was on the radio this morning, that the goverment is going to put a 300% tariff on the cheese (made in France) they use to make blue cheese dressing. It goes into effect April 23rd. So, if you are a blue cheese dressing person you may want to buy ahead.

    I found a story on this. Here's the link.

    This is for a specialty Roquefort cheese that sells now for about $71 a pound. I have never and will never spend that amount of money for a pound of cheese in any variety. Don't worry every day ordinary american bleu cheese lovers this will not affect our bottled bleu cheese dressing.

    Quote:Very interesting. All I know is what was said on the radio this morning. I'm wondering is that the cheese they use to make blue cheese dressing? [​IMG]
