Watching the Coyotes/Canucks.  One of the commercials in the rotation is a Yancy's Fancy ad, basically one of the ones you've seen, with Mike Robataille as the "celebrity" endorser (I would think only Buffalo ex-pats would know who he is).  Kind of weird to hear about Pembroke, NY, on the Coyotes broadcast.

Their Bergenost is probably my favorite of their cheeses.

To be fair, I beleive he did play for the Canucks at some point, as well. Still weird for Yancy's Fancy's to be advertised all the way on the west coast, haha.

Not really on the same topic as you, but i once went to visit a friend in Seattle, and we went to Vancouver and stayed with one of his female friends apartments, and their "local" Fox News channel was Fox Rochester. Now... that was weird.

Anybody know why that was or if it's still the case?

Yancey's Fancy is available in many locations in AZ and also the entire country: http://www.yanceysfa...location/browse

I love their Buffalo Wing cheese.  We have a few Wegmans here in Maryand and you can buy it there.

They have a good selection of YF at the local Harris Teeter here in North Carolina.  It's a little piece of home!

I've seen it here in PHX at Fry's or Safeway.  Can't remember which one and wanted to try it but I wanted just a plain cheddar to taste before trying a flavored cheese.

Try the Buffalo Wing cheese.  Nice spicy bite.  I like matching it up with a CheezeIt.

I've seen that, too -- first time I saw a Yancey's ad on the boards at their arena I was really surprised!

We've got their cheeses here in the grocery store, too.

I find the "buffalo" flavor too overpowering.  I enjoy subtleties in flavor and this cheese screams "YOU ARE EATING A BUFFALO FLAVOR CHEESE" rather than "enjoy this spicy cheese with a hint of "buffalo flavor"

Funny thing I saw on the news thats cheese related is they're starting to de-ice roads with cheese brine instead of salt. Salt attracts animals which in turn get hit by vehicles but apparently salt is useless below certain temperatures whereas cheese brine works fine. Also using beet juice in some places. Sorry for going ot but I thought it was interesting.

To each his own.  When I get a block of it, I tend to polish it off in record time.  I'm helped by the fact that it is too spicy for the family, so it's 'mine all mine'.

Got some awesome garlic, parsley chive cheddar cheese here in raleigh today... Also had delicious habanero cheddar as well and a dill white cheddar...... There was some YF but these homemade farmers market cheeses blew them away.

They sell it in grocery stores in southern california too. There's been a Yancey's fancy booth at the Long Beach GP handing out cheese samples the past few years.

Try the Yancey's Steakhouse Onion Cheddar.  It's pretty awesome, but no one will want to stand within 5 feet of you after you're done.  Getting the onion flavor out of your mouth takes at least 18 hours.....

That's what ink means, I think. The stuff is good, but they're really heavy handed with the flavor. I'd almost try to cut it 50/50 with "regular" cheese to balance it out.

Costco carries it sometimes here in Texas.  And I've seen it in other stores.  But the part I thought was interesting is that they were marketing it on the Arizona cablecast with Roby as their spokesman.
