  • Of course there is the "regular stufff" like American, colby, cheddar, cream cheese, ricotta. I've tried brie, swiss, gouda, a few different types of chevre. The newest type we've tried is gjetost, which is brown and very tasty. Almost a caramel flavor. You only need a tiny bite, and it pairs well with apples.

  • Oh I couldn't for the life of me remember all the types of cheeses I've eaten! But my favorites are Munster, or fresh mozzarella. I'm also fond of this cheese that's from Oaxaca, Mexico (they call it quesillo). So yummy.

  • I don't know what I have eaten. Went to France and ate tons of great cheese, but couldn't tell you the names, except Brie that was really good. In the house we eat Colby/Jack and Mozzarella, and American. Oh ya Squeaky cheese, that is just fun cheese to eat.

  • Holy cow. (pun intended) this could take a while. Cottage, cream, ricotta, mozerrella, cheddar, blue, feta, havarti, farm, Gjtoste (sp), wiskey cheddar, port wine, Parmesan, Romano, Butterkase (s),Gouda, Fontina, herb havarti, lemon goat, american, Asiago, Brie, babybel, Cheshire, Colby, colby Jack, Montery Jack, Derby, Lappi, swiss, pepper jack...The list goes on!! WE live near a great world market that carries TONS of different kinds of cheese every time we go we get 3-5 different kinds to try. (blocks sold by the pound so we get small small bricks) My fav is a fondue made from Fontina, Butterkase and a touch of blue.

  • Have eaten more cheese than I can count... but the ones stand are close to my heart are Comte, its an aged Gruyere, and Cocoa Cardona, which is a creamy, heavenly, smooth, orgasmic goat cheese coated in cocoa powder. Its truly indescribable. The other near and dear to me is handmade mozz. Hubby and I do it together, and I swear we are never closer than when our hands meet in the cheese water bowl. Cowgirl Creamery also makes some stellar cheese and are definitely worth checking out!! :) Good post mama! Its got my tastebuds jonseing for some good cheese! :0
