Smoked cheese has been my go to.

I use Dubliner white cheddar from Costco and put it on the wood smoker as low as possible. The low heat and smoke removes a lot of the oil leaving it dry - perfect for hot temps.

i've had cheddar out with me on 8 day trips and it's fine. oily as noted above. i like the taste a bit better; kind of crumbly too.

To absorb some of the oil, I sometimes put a paper towel in the bottom of the ziploc bag. As long as you use wax paper or parchment paper to separate the slices it will not stick to the cheese.

I have found several good hard cheeses at Trader Joe's that have lasted well on trips but my favorites now are the parmesan Whisps (as mentioned above) and the Sonoma Creamery cheddar bacon "crackers", both found at Costco or Amazon for good prices.  And there is the added benefit of weighing less.  smile.gif

What you want is the cheese already encased in wax,  just about every grocery store has some varieties usually gouda sometimes cheddar which is preferable as a harder cheese than the waxed gouda generally available in U.S.  I've carried these on 6-7 day trips just fine in the summer.

Have also used the babybel's mentioned, but they're not a very efficient way to carry cheese on a long trip - too small, each tiny cheese wheel is individually wrapped.  But it is a softer cheese that will keep inside the wax.
