      Hey there,
      I have found a Hungarian that imports Slovak bryndza- and I bet it is hard to be sure that a Pole is or isn't importing Slovak bryndza.  I think people who know Slovenska (majova) bryndza would have to try it and give you their opinion... and I am always looking for an excuse to eat bryndza.  However, Martin's words have lead me to the idea that I will probably decline any American bryndza. Feta is not even close....

      It sounds like you are getting two types of mixes here, one more "cut" than the other, and the roll is leading me to think Slovak bryndza.  I am HOPING, as I live on bryndza when I can find it. I have since lost a staple of my diet- bryndza and zincica. What is a fujaras to do???? Slivovica is just not a substitute.. . :-D
      Martin and other Slovaks, please chime in and give me hope....

      I've been following this thread of thought carefully because I have been
      able to buy bryndza in the Chicago area for quite a while. However, I'm not too
      sure about its provenance, because it doesn't seem to be quite the same each
      time I find it. Sometimes it is rather mild and resembles cream cheese, and
      other times it is more sharp and a little more dry, but still of spreading
      consistency. It is apparently repacked from a bulk package into small plastic
      tubs that weigh about a half pound, more or less. The cost was $5.49 per
      pound the last time I bought some.

      I have a few questions:

      Because my source is a Polish importer, am I buying a Polish-style bryndza?

      Can I use this bryndza when I make bryndzove halusky? (I just came across
      an old recipe that I would love to try during the Christmas season).

      Any information or comments would be appreciated.

      It's not clear where this product has originated. A substitute made
      of cow cheese and feta, processed and seasoned to resemble bryndza, is
      sold in a limited number of places in the US. A former major Slovak
      exporter to the US said in the summer that they were stopping export
      to the US (which is not to say that they indeed did). They probably
      used to supply all the Slovak bryndza that was commercially available
