Yup, I got my balls for the holidays. Two nice hefty red specimens. If you saw the new Bond flick, youâ€™d understand why 007 would probably be in the market for some balls as well. :) Mine are slickly wrapped in paraffin, are equally oily and have a pungent odor. Oddly one sits up higher than the other, and though both are spherical, they are uniquely shaped and unlike the other. Bloody salty, they are, and at PHP698 for one and PHP682 for the other, a serious investment, if you ask meâ€¦ But the use-by-date says they wonâ€™t expire until 16 months from nowâ€¦ Heeheehee. Please, TAKE NO OFFENSE at this silly post. Itâ€™s just that I have come home from the grocery with two, 1.5 kilo, queso de bolas in preparation for all of the holiday baking and cooking. I did a fairly exhaustive post on Queso de Bola last year, comparing several brands of QdB, complete with taste test and results. These balls will likely end up shredded on top of our homemade ensaimadas, or at a later stage, in some cheese pimiento. Yes, Marketman is prepping for the holidays and I’ve got my fresh balls to prove it. Heeheehee.
