  1. Have any of these been reviewed here? They dont look familiar to me.

    • We have reviewed Wine Down and Bright Cellars—the reviews are linked under each respective bullet point. If there are any specific subs on this list you’re curious about, do let us know and we’ll consider reviewing it!

  2. I have a cheese board from FFF but I can’t afford cheese subs hahaha

    • Lol, #goals. Maybe the cheese board will help you manifest the cheese!

  3. I love the concept of a cheese sub as I am a total mouse and cheese is a staple in my daily diet. But they are all so expensive, especially having access to costco and safeway and raleys who have all stepped up the cheese variety. I just have to break my walking schedules and drive, which I hate doing.

    • “I am a total mouse” — hilarious, Dawn! I would say these subscriptions would be most useful for folks who either don’t have access to those great grocery options, or for someone who values the element of surprise that would come with them being selected by a cheesemonger. And, I think in some cases the price is due to special shipping packaging needs!

  4. I would not have expected there were this many of these.

    • Kind of amazing, isn’t it?
