Most people may not think so but I think it's worth every penny!

For that price it better be psychedelic or give you an orgasm, at least. Maybe both.

The price knocked me out - more expensive than very good beef -- and then I started thinking of what we pay, per pound, for little bags of potato chips, and it seemed less crazy. Still...

This is nothing like the stuff that comes in a green can.

It's a lot, but also put into perspective what some things other than gas and milk might cost per gallon.

It just bothers me that the things that are either good for you or high quality are only available to those who can afford them. Kind of like the whole "Expensive/healthy fresh fruit vs cheap processed crap" dilemma that some people have to live with.

To put things into perspective, Costco charges $12.50 per pound for a similar product. And the green stuff in a can (nearly tasteless, except for the salt) is $9.75 per pound at Safeway.

Trader Joe's offers two good Parmesan Reggiano.
These cheese are "drier" and have a better flavor than any Parmesan cheeses from Wisconsin, which are moister and don't have the flavor.
It's like beer. All the flavors comes from the waters used in brewing beer (yes, good water makes good beer) except where they add chemicals in an attempt to replicate the original taste.

I do believe you wouldn't like living in France. $18.95 is pretty normal for good cheese.
