Buying garlic: peeled cloves vs. whole bulbs?

sequins | Jul 16, 2006 08:56 PM

I always thought that pre-peeled cloves of garlic -- which one sees at some supermarkets (e.g., Whole Foods), often sold in pint-sized containers -- must be less flavorful to cook with than garlic one peels oneself from regular, whole bulbs. But an acquaintance who seems kinda serious about food assures me that's not so. What do Chowhounds think?
