Havarti with caraway seeds, or with herbs.

This is pretty much an impossible question for me since I have yet to meet a cheese - any cheese - that I haven't liked in some capacity. At this point in life, I think the only cheese I enjoyed as a child but don't care for much now is the Norwegian "Gjetost", which I find much too sweet as an adult.

I love them all - from cheddar to Limburger & back again. (I'd sell any relatives I don't like if Liederkranz would come back again - lol!!) But I guess, just off the top of my head (& I know I could come up with DOZENS more), the following are my favorite "grab a hunk for a snack" cheeses:

Kashkavel - a salty sheep's milk cheese.
Kasseri - ditto.
(Both of the above are excellent cheeses to pair with some good marinated olives & a few canned stuffed grape leaves with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Talk about an ultra snack!!)
Wisconsin Brick - must be a real authentic Wisconsin Brick cheese to qualify.
Queso Fresco with Jalapeno Pepper - used to be able to get this at a local supermarket until recently - boo hoo!!!
Aged Gruyere - nothing beats a good aged Gruyere; solid, satisfying, & nutty.

Hey, Breezy. I've bought Queso Fresco at Wal-Mart, although I don't remember if they had a variety with jalapenos.

No, unfortunately they don't (although I continue to check whenever I'm in there).

The only store that used to carry it around here was Food Lion, but they haven't had it in months.

Oooh - just remembered another favorite, especially at this time of year:

Any blue-veined cheese (Maytag, Gorgonzola, Stilton, etc.) with slices of very ripe, juicy, pear & a glass of nice ruby Port. Yum.

Trader Joe has this "sandwiched" cheese, with Cheddar on the top and bottom and Stiltson in the middle, that I am rather fond of.

Like Breezy, there is no way I could pick just one. Cheese is one of my favorite foods and there are so many different types that I love. Just to throw one out that no one has said yet, but not necessarily my "favorite" is Jarlsberg. I grew up with this stuff and love it. I enjoy a nice big chunk of it or thin slices of it or melted on a bagel with some lox. Each way tastes different to me and I love all of them.
