Honestly I am not a big fan of feta cheese. Especially of a crumbled one. Dairy companies put too much cellulose dust in their packages to prevent feta from sticking in to one big piece and it taste gross( and unhealthy too)

If i cant find any real feta in blocks, i buy Queso Fresco! Lovely smooth taste and creamy consistency makes it a great substitute for any feta cheese.
