Difference between Gorganzola & Blue Cheese?

I know that Gorgonzola is only one of the several cheeses known as “Blues”. However, when I go to a convenient local “supermarket” I find different containers labeled as Gorgonzola and Blue Cheese from more than one supplier. How can I tell if the one labeled Gorgonzola is what I am getting and vice-versa. I have a suspicion that the cheeses are sometimes mislabeled. You may say “so what”, but I don’t like to be duped. I would like to get what I paid for. How do you discern the difference – taste, smell, texture??? I need a cheese maven to give me some advice so that I can intelligently tell the difference. I know if I go to a cheese specialty store I probably can trust the proprietor. However, I still would like to really know what to key on when I visit a supermarket.
