Word Abuse: Asiago

I’m sick of the word “Asiago”.  I’m sick of seeing it.  I’m sick of hearing it.  It’s a total and complete “show-off” word.  It just screams of “I’m too good to sit next to you and breathe your air.  And I’m certainly too good to eat Velveeta cheese.”  Asiago this.  Asiago that.  Asiago chicken sandwiches.  Asiago penne pasta. Asiago deodorant.  Come on!  Enough is enough!

with all the crap they put in Lean Cuisine you're gonna tell me you can taste the Asiago?!?!?

Where the hell did this cheese come from, anyway?!??  I’m not talking it’s origin.  I can look that answer up on Wikipedia.  I’m talking when did this cheese become so in vogue?  When did it become the cheese du jour?

holy shit, honey! i bet the Asiago cheese Nabisco bakes into these Wheat Thins totally makes them taste less like bark!

Here’s the thing.  Your friendly neighborhood jman’s  willing to wager dollars to donuts that 87% of the population doesn’t have a discriminative enough palate (lmao!  i initially had that spelled “pallet”) to discern Asiago cheese from, say, Cheez Whiz.  And I’m not speaking from up high, either.  You put American cheese and Asiago in front of me?  I’d probably say they both taste like Cheddar.

trust me, it's the menu board from Wendy's

So…Wendy’s…stop pretending your anything but a fast food joint, ok?  Just because you fancify your chicken sandwich with Asiago cheese, still doesn’t make you anything other than a fast food joint.

    • understood. no argument here. but…c’mon. you gotta admit stores are getting a bit out of hand with the word.

      • Well, the fact that it’s blown up like woah as a popular flavour is a little overkill… But my opinion remains… It’s DELICIOUS. Parmasean was the last big cheese fad…

  1. hahaha! that is so true! hilarious post…anything with food usually engages me, but this was a great plate of crackers and asiago flavored sarcasm and I loved it
