Our family consumes a lot of cheese. Before I was vegetarian, we used to buy big loafs of cheese from BJs and consume a couple a week. Nowadays, I buy a whole bunch of these tiny little 8oz cheese blocks that cost a fortune. Furthermore, they cost more than most of the other cheeses of the same size, because I’m buying Cabot. Why? Simply because I’m a softie, and the cheese package says this little bit:
Contains no animal rennet.
I like to think of my actions as part of a great vegetarian sneak attack on the cheese industry. Through the power of our consumer demand, we’ll have big loafs of vegetarian cheese yet!
