what does Provolone cheese taste like?

Has anyone tasted this cheese before? If so, what does it taste like. I am a huge fan of brie and creamy havarti cheeses. I don't mind mild cheddar and mozzarella, but I can not stand swiss cheese. So how does it compare with these cheeses? Thanks.

Real provolone does not taste like mild mozzarella ...

It has a stronger more distinctive taste and is often served on deli sandwiches. Mild mozzarella has little taste.
At first you might not like it.( it will prob grow on you)
...no doubt they will vary depending on the quality. A bit like parmesan....the cheap stuff VS Reggiano...$12 lb?

Any real Italians here? :razz:

provolones good for sandwiches.

but the taste is like mozza..mild and kinda flavourless. if you dont like strong cheeses, provolones good for you.
