In the early 50's was introduced by My French Grandparents in the country of French Morocco city of Casablanca where they lived at the time to Camembert. There is no equal to this soft ripened cheese here in the USA. Is it possible to order from you & In bigger sizes than the 230gm normally available on the rare occasion you do find it? Merci in advance for your answer.

WHERE can I find the brie cheese baby bites? Can I order it from you? I have checked with Vons and Albertsons and a couple of local (not chain) markets and no one seems to have it. Zip is 92003.
Thank you.

I have an unwrapped wedge of Brie with a supermarket date that says "Sell by 2/15/15." It is now 1 month beyond that. No sign of mold on the Brie. Is it still good to eat?

Hi phyloyd, mold generally can't penetrate far into hard and semisoft cheeses. You can carefully cut away at least 1 inch around the moldy part and eat the rest of the cheese. However, don't try this with soft cheeses, or any kind of cheese that's shredded, crumbled or sliced. When in doubt, throw it out!
