I see a lot of reviews on here from SE bloggers and its readers. Some of them include descriptions like heavenly!, unbelievable! like nothing else! etc. You get the idea.

While some are pretty reliable, there are times when you just don't feel the same enthusiasm once you yourself have tried the product leading to a simple ......"Meh! it's ok. - nothing special."

Today I purchased Cypress Grove's Truffle Tremor at Fairway and it was just...Meh! Unless I'm not eating it right :), I just didn't find anything special about it. I got a small section for less than $5.00 and it's goat cheese (which I like) so I don't regret my purchase, but still....

Anyone felt that way about a recommendation from here or anywhere?

And yes I get that people's taste differ.
