(NPR)   Mimolette, a pretentious French cheese, gets its distinctive taste from cheese mites that live inside it. The FDA thinks importing cheese with live bugs is dangerous, and for some reason people are upset they can't get French bug cheese   (npr.org) divider line 28

That's called syphilis. Avoid it like the plague unless you like roast beef and cheese.

Citation? It may be just a single case, but I bet this kid would have eaten funny-looking corn had he been given the opportunity:

Because it only has one name. Bono, Sting, Jewel, Madonna, Mimolette. See a pattern there?

Colby Jack is the least pretentious of all the cheeses. No fancy hard to pronounce name. No bugs. Just good old school cheese. No more, no less.

durbnpoisn: If you took the time to look through the electron microscope pictures of what is already in your mouth, belly, swimming over your eyes, living in your pillow, etc etc... you probably would be mortified.

Well, be mortified.  Because these little tiny monsters have been here for longer than us.  And we couldn't live 2 minutes without them.  I'm afraid you are just going to have to deal with it.


I'll never forget college biology freshman year. Professor is going over bacteria, and how they are on your skin, in your mouth, gut, etc. and how you need them to survive.

lordargent: darwinpolice: I think the first person ever to look at a lobster and think "Yes, that should go in my belly" must've been the hungriest person in the history of hunger.

Uncooked maybe,

But maybe, a lobster somewhere died in a fire or got hit by a lightning bolt or something and someone went "hmm, that smells damn tasty".


Early peoples often discovered what was edible (and, especially what was palatable) by watching what animals ate.

I'm pretty sure that, at some point, humans saw sea otters feasting on cooked lobster dipped into clarified butter.

That, by the way, is also how early people learned about Hollandaise sauce.  The French take credit for it...but, it was the otters.

How exactly is this cheese pretentious?

Actually it's the people who cultivate a taste for it that are pretentious.

So its now pretentious to enjoy cheese?


Cheese, no. Cheese bugs, yes.

Try coating some cheddar with dog vomit and then let it sit for a couple years. Somebody somewhere will pronounce it "le roi des  fromages," for particular individuals only.

That is the most disgusting-looking crap ever, but I've had it in Mexican dishes in New Mexico a couple of times and it's actually kind of tasty.
