So sorry, Frank.

I'm a lover of stinky cheese, too. My wife went to Chicago last week and brought a few back with her. I'm surprised she made the entire drive back with this bag of cheese in the car. Though completely closed up, I could smell it as soon as she brought it in the house. I thought maybe she had brought a bag of dirty diapers with her. Her car STILL smells funky!

One of the cheeses was called "Ewe Bloom". My first thought upon opening the package and getting the first whiff was "Ewwww is right." Tasty stuff, though.

Thankfully no. The cheese was $17/lb and we spent about $5 on this.

The best way to describe it would be picture aged Velveeta, but in a really really bad way. UGH.

Urk! At least at our cheese counter they let us taste before we buy.

When my husband had his first breakfast in Denmark, I saw his face go funny. I asked what was the matter. He replied, "It's a vicious attack cheese! But, it's good."

Danes talk about tying their cheese down with a string, so it won't run away.
