If you’re charmed by parm, Costo’s latest outlandishly oversized item may seem too gouda brie true – but it’s the real deal.

In recent days, the superstore has made headlines for selling a whopping 72-pound wheel of parmigiano reggiano cheese.

According to the store's online listing, each hefty block produced by the store’s Kirkland Signature brand is “aged 24 months” and “imported from Italy.”

I love me some cheez


But this is a bit much. A great deal and if stored right will last a long time. Just can't see putting out that much cheddar for some parmigiano.

I see no reason to buy such an amount of cheese unless you run a restaurant. Even if you are Italian.

Dude...are you kidding me???? Have you ever been in an Italian restaurant where they asked you if you wanted some cheese on your pasta, and then ground some in front of you????

"Is that enough???"...they ask you.

No F#in' way is that enough!! Enough Cheese???? No WAY!! MOAR!!! LOTS MOAR!! "Keep grinding that cheese until cheese shoots out of every orifice on my body, and then grind some MOAR!!"

I want them to grind the cheese until the skin falls away from their bony fingers from grinding it, and then grind it some more. I want them to grind it until the "Reggiano" cows turn inside out!

Seriously, I've just invested in some "Reggiano" cows (they're a real thing, you know) who have Kevlar and carbon fiber teets. They shoot Parmesan out of their udders!!! They do!~!!!!

I'll eat that whole damn 72lb cheese wheel!! The whole damn thing!!!

Then for the month or so you were still alive, we would have to refer to you as "The Man Who Never Poops."

Don't get me wrong, I love me some cheese.

I had a VERY vivid dream once that some calamity had happened, the world had ended...

And I was leading the troops into battle to fight for who got the cheese wheel.

I still giggle thinking about it... oddest dream ever.

But 72 pounds?

Seems like a rather horrid way to go... death by constipation.

If that is true Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy,
that is a great deal.
This is why,,, I just bought a pound of the real
deal for $21.99 per pound. Here in LaLa Land of The East prices.

It is the only parm cheese that we use, and we
hand grate our parm always.

If you were to pound it out at $21.99 ,
you would be looking at $1584.00 minus your $900.00.
For a profit of $684.00

That is if you could store it properly without eating
your own supply.


P.S. We all know the Moon is made out of cheese,
but Mars may very well be made out of Parmigiano.
Good Stuff L.A.M. keep up the great work!

An old Italian friend of mine got a thirty pound wheel of Asiago cheese directly from Italy a while back. It was almost five hundred bucks by the time the shipping was included in the price. I got a big chunk of it, it was half the size of his kitchen table and six inches thick. He was an old Italian and gave the majority of it to friends and relatives, he was a mason and made quite a bit of money working, he could not take it with him.

I had about three pounds of it, it lasted me for months. It was by far the best asiago I ever had. I doubt if I will ever spend that kind of money on cheese. He has been gone now for about six years, he was a good friend.

Boy, good real cheese is pretty expensive in the stores, a little chunk at the coop here is ten bucks. I doubt if that is even a half pound. I do not want to get hooked on cheeses that run over twenty bucks a pound, it is bad enough that I spend twelve bucks a pound on salt codfish.

Y’all are neglecting how great parm rind is as well. Winter will soon ruin my boat shoes and some dishes that have a depth of flavor will be soul affirming. Using the rind in a sauce or a braise is fantastico.
