Birkenstock Mainzer/Harzer Käse (German Hand Cheese) 200gPlease read warning before purchasing this cheese.
Genuine German Hand Cheese made from fine Skim Milk Cheese (64% moisture, 1% milk fat) - 4 pieces. Firmly sealed in a clear wrapper to show freshness and keep the strong odor of this cheese within the package. This cheese is named for the area it is produced in. If you love strong, stinky cheese this one's for you!
Warning: please be aware that our Imported Hand Cheese shipments can vary in the consistency of the cheeses. Sometimes we receive a very soft cheese and sometimes a firmer cheese. It is always a fresh shipment as it sells out immediately upon arrival from Germany. We cannot predict how firm or soft the cheese will be with each new shipment. If you are sensitive to the consistency of the cheese, please reconsider purchasing this product. At the very least, indicate in the "Special Instructions" if you do not want a "soft" cheese. We are not able to refund on this product if it is not the firmness you desire.
