Johnsonville Three Cheese Italian Style Smoked Sausage

I found this sausage to be a little confusing. Am I getting an Italian sausage with 3 cheeses? Am I getting a smoked sausage with fennel and 3 cheeses? Am I getting 3 cheeses in a smoked sausage and if so, what’s Italian Style about that?johnsonville three cheese italian style smoked sausage

Apparently it’s a smoked sausage with 3 types of cheese (Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Romano) that are of course Italian cheeses (or at least they each originated in Italy). Quite frankly I was expecting some fennel but if there was some it wasn’t apparent to me when eating this product.

This is a fine grind sausage mildly spiced and nicely smoked. There is cheese but it doesn’t stand out in any way and in fact, it was almost tasteless. As far as I could tell, the cheese brought nothing to the table which was a bit disappointing.

Overall this is a basic smoked sausage that is being sold as a premium sausage product. The packaging is two large sausages, individually wrapped which probably just adds a bit to the cost but served no purpose for me. If you can find it on sale and you are looking for a decent smoked sausage I would say this fits the bill but if you are looking for a really good smoked sausage and cheese experience this is not it.

I would not purchase this product again.

Ingredients: Pork, water, mozzerella, parmesan, romano, salt, corn syrup, sugar, garlic powder, spices, beef, sodium phosphate, dehydrated red bell pepper, onion powder, dehydrated garlic, tomato powder, yeast extract, sodium erythorbate, natural flavors, sodium nitrite, collagen casings.
