Is there such a thing as FIRM goat cheese - or does that mean it's gone bad?

I purchased some Fromager d'Affinois Florette goat cheese from Whole Foods last night. I took it out of the wrapping and let it sit for a while (expecting it to soften with room temperature)... not only did it not get soft (you could cut through it, but it was very firm) - it lacked flavor - which I found suprising for goat cheese!

Is anyone familiar with this cheese? I want to take it back to Whole Foods and ask for a refund (if they even do such a thing) - but if that's how the cheese is SUPPOSED to be, then I'll just chalk it up as a bad, adventurous purchase.... although, it seems as if it was stale. And, at 19.99/lb that hurts!
