    Yup - love me some cheese. Any kind. And it's the ONLY food that if I haven't tried a particular kind I won't hesitate to put it in my mouth. Do have to say I'm not a fan of swiss cheese though. Not sure why.

    Wisconsin cheese curds are the best!
    They deep fry them at the WI state fair and dip them in ranch or marinara... Yum.

    Trader joes has a great white cheddar truffle cheese.

    Soft goat cheese stuffed inside of dried dates or dried figs.

    Oh for the love of cheeses. It's like chips - can't eat just one and great with chips.

    Simple medium cheddar is awesome. The fancy stuff is great too.

    Paneer! Easy-ish to make and fresh, good stuff.

    I discovered how good cheese was when I escaped mild cheddar. Then casein intolerance hit t1. I almost cried when I realised I could no longer have cheese toasties. Fortunately I had tried goat and had felt slightly better. So now I ignore anything cow, its anything t2, sheep or goat all the way. Cave aged goat is lovely.

    My favorite for flavor is buffalo (that's water buffalo) milk mozzarella cheese. It's a specialty here in Italy, and when we're at the beach in the summer they make it near us----fantastic, but calorie rich. I use all types when cooking. Italy has many DOP (protected from their origin) cheeses and my husband buys alot. When cutting calories I eat a little swiss or feta. I also like regular Philidelphia on a Wasa cracker.
    OP-- I'm also originally from Minnesota.

    Cheese. The one, single food I COULD NOT eliminate. Everything else is optional. Technically, you could deny me cheese and I would survive, but I don't think I could be truly happy. I would always miss it... :(

    I honestly can't remember a day without cheese in some form or another. I even take it with me on backpacking trips. A life without cheese is like a life without cheese. Not good.

    I have at least .5 oz of cheese each and every day. There's nothing I don't like, but I've grown an affection for products from the British isles.

    I have always wanted to try making my own cheeses!

    it is such a science and does not always work out. Its also near impossible with pasteurized milk. (single pasteurization is usually ok) its so fun and delicious!
