$39.90 for Parmesan RIND?!?! [moved from Not About Food]

CanadaGirl | Aug 12, 2011 11:32 AM

I was just shopping at the cheese counter at a local grocery store when I noticed they were selling Parmesan cheese rind for $39.90/kg. I've never seem this befire, but I guess they grated some cheese to sell pre-grated and then decided to sell the VERY thin rind left over. Aside from the ridiculous price being charged, I also think that if someone is going to throw the rind into sauce, soup, etc, they will probably take the 30 seconds to grate their own cheese.

Am I the only one surprised by this?
