We don't buy string cheese often, so maybe I'm the only one out there who hasn't noticed this. But, did you know that each stick is only .833 oz for the Frigo vs.1 oz for the Sargento?
You'll still end up with an extra 1.328 ounces in the Sargento 16 ct., but it's not a full 4 ounces, as they probably prefer you believe when comparing it to the 12 ct Sargento. Of course, the Frigo will probably keep mouths happy 16 times vs. 12 times, so there's something to be said for that also!
Regardless, I think both of these are a pretty decent deal for cheese, at Fry's. Cheese is something that is getting harder and harder to get a good deal on.
