Taste

This isn’t as good as I expected it to be. It’s not bad at all just not very flavorful and the bread didn’t taste exactly fresh. If you’re afraid of a super strong cheesy flavor don’t fear, the cheese sauce on the bread is very mild and not at all pungent or even very flavorful. It basically tastes like a very mild mozzarella/brie sauce that just moistens the inside of the bread. There’s a decent amount of cheese sauce on each square portion of bread, the inside pieces seem to have a little more. The bread itself is a thick crusty wheat bread that’s partially sliced into small cubes so you can pull it apart but It actually doesn’t really pull apart that easily, especially the inside pieces. The bread itself definitely wasn’t Also the pictures on the box of it having stringy cheese when you pull it apart are deceiving because there was no stringy cheese in our pull apart cheese bread! I expected this pull apart cheese bread to have a lot more flavor and be super delicious but unfortunately the cheese was underwhelming and the bread just wasn’t that great!

Cost

I paid $13.99 Canadian for the Tipiak Pull Apart Cheese Bread which includes two pull apart cheese breads in the box.

Convenience

The box comes with two pull apart cheese breads and each bread is individually wrapped in plastic and the bread is in a small thick cardboard like box for heating in the oven. You put the box directly in the oven and bake the bread for 14 to 16 minutes. The best before date on the Tipiak Pull Apart Cheese Bread is about a month from the day we purchased it from Costco. It makes a convenient side or appetizer.

I wanted to love this bread as much as I love the macarons from Tipiak which I reviewed here and here but sadly it just wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be! I probably wouldn’t repurchase it.

  1. The cheese had a garlicky taste that I liked but I agree with the review that the bread just wasn’t that great. The bread pulled apart very easily and the cheese in mine when I pulled it part was very stringy but overall I wouldn’t buy this item again.

    • How fast does the food poisoning kick in cause i just made the bread and I cooked it for 15 minutes like the box said and the middle was still cold so I put it back in for 6 minutes more and I ate a couple side peices and then found out the middle was still cold I didn’t like the peices I did eat so I threw it away but now I’m feeling clamy and sweaty and my hands are shaking I’ve never had food poisoning but I’m scared now after reading this

  2. Found this at my local Costco in Carlsbad, CA in April 2022. This bread was the most disgusting food item I’ve ever bought from Costco. I unfortunately ate two small pull-apart pieces before deciding to trash the entire product. After eating, had symptoms of severe food poisoning, possibly listeria. (To be confirmed by lab results – and if so, an official FDA inspection complaint).

  4. Great appetizer with a type of glass for any occasion👍

    I served this cheese in various social events morning and late afternoon. Everyone came to me to ask me how to make it as they thought i baked it.

    With my French mother and great affinity for cheeses and breads…this is a very tasty soft with a gentle mild savor. One cannot have every cheese to taste like every other. Great Job🤘

  5. I am glad I read this first. I’ve been meaning to get this item for a treat for my birthday or anniversary, but haven’t had a chance to yet. I think I might skip it now.

  7. Taste was so bland! I added some garlic butter on my second loaf and it made a little more enjoyable but not worth buying to try it.
