I am in Nicaragua on vacation and getting ready to go grocery shopping. I will pick some up and report on it when I get back.

 

Research, a ugly tedious process, but somebody has to do it.;)

Sancor is an Argentinean  dairy factory.

Cremoso (creamy) is neither cream cheese nor brie. It's a fresh soft cheese, mellow, on the bland side, made with pasteurized milk. Sometimes used as a mozzarella replacement. Some info here:

Absolutely not. No strings, different texture. A much more uniform paste, mild cheese.

Let's wait for cheflayne's "tedious" research.

Just got back from town, with a detour to the beach to watch the sun go down. No luck on the cheese, selection was small today probably because they are all closed tomorrow. I guess they restock on Mondays or Tuesdays. I know I saw that cheese though, but haven't bought any yet because I was "researching" some other new to me varieties. I will keep my eye out for queso cremoso because now I am real curious though. Thanks @abefroman and @ordo for furthering my education. I got new and fun things to research!
