    When I was younger my old Italian uncle from Italy was making us try this
    Casu marzu (Sardinian pronunciation: [ˈkazu ˈmard͡zu], also called casu modde, casu cundídu and casu fràzigu in Sardinian language, or in Italian formaggio marcio), literally translating into English as “rotten/putrid cheese”, is a traditional Sardinian sheep milk cheese, that contains live insect larvae (maggots).. It was the grossest cheese smell ever and he kept teasing my twin brother and I to try it saying it was really good when all I wanted to do was be sick. My uncle would eat this cheese along with a big glass of home made red wine. I can picture him now RIP ZIO Gino. His birthday is July 5th so cheers to him with his rotten/putrid cheese and wine lol

    I am the mouse in the house that steals all the cheese. Do not put any kind of cheese in the icebox because it will not be there next time you open the door.

  • Tbag

    My cheese story is more of a love story. I used remember taking a bite out of a singles cheese and thinking it was pretty disgusting. Never understood how people liked cheese so much, but then the day came when I tried melted cheese. This is was on first taste, I really enjoyed it and began having some form of melted cheese everyday. Once in a while people would tell me to eat less cheese, but I would ignore them because I didn’t need that type of negativity in my life 🙂

  • Jason Provo

    I used to babysit my niece and nephew occasionally and spaghetti was always their first choice for supper (mine too). I would place all the choices of toppings on the table for each to choose their own and we all know the pungent pervasive odour of grated parmesan…and if I didnt remember to bring it to the table, my niece gently reminded me of HER favourite topping; “Uncle Jay, don’t forget to bring out the STINKY CHEESE!”

    I was at a restaurant as an 8 year old with my godparents and two older male cousins. As I looked at the menu I saw something that totally intrigued me- blue cheese salad! Wow, blue cheese, my 8 year old self thought, that would be pretty and cool so I ordered with great anticipation. When my salad arrived instead of cheese the color of a summer sky or the deep blue sea I saw odd shaped chunks laced with green and navy but I being 8 deceided to try this new cheese. That was until my 12 year cousin said, you know you’re eating mold, right? Mold! I knew what mold was, that awful stuff on old bread and forgotten leftovers. What a mean trick, I cried very loudly, who is trying to poison me! Well, everyone at my table and the next few tables over burst out laughing and my poor waitress rushed over to reassure me but I was dubious of the whole darn place. I refused to eat anything they offered and to this day am totally repulsed by blue cheese. My older cousin still sends me blue cheese salad dressing every year for Christmas, geez!

  • edeliz

    Since I’m lactose intolerant, my cheese story is one of struggle, cause I so want to eat it but it comes with pain. And yes, delicious cheese is worth it!

    • Jason Provo

      Have u tried the soy-based cheeses?

  • Cheryl Termin

    My cheese story is one of making grilled cheese sandwiches

  • Sue W.

    I have a friend that makes the most awesome baked Mac & cheese…she uses 10 different cheeses!!!!

  • Mindy Sleeper

    My cheese story is my fiance has me drowning in mac-n-cheese; always got to have mac-n-cheese wih dinner. 🙂

  • Ray Ayala

    When taking pictures, English speakers usually say “Smile and say CHEESE!”

    When taking pictures, Chinese speakers usually say “Smile and say
    EGGPLANT!”

    We say cheese because it forces our mouth into the shape of a natural smile. However, the Chinese word for cheese (nailao) does not.

    The Chinese found a word in Chinese that sounds sort of like “cheesy” , which means eggplant, that also forces the mouth into a smile.

    Next time you get your picture taken, remember, there are options.

  • Jennifer B.

    My mom’s homemade macaroni and cheese is the best stuff on earth. I won’t tell you all the ingredients, but you’ll need an entire log of Velveeta! I don’t eat it much nowadays, because wowza that’s a lot of cheese, but I grew up on that stuff. We always had Velveeta in the fridge in a Tupperware container that I assume was specifically made for that sucker back in the day and a wiry cheese slicer!

  • Jason Pike

    Wow that is funny I just go don shredding cheese for my nachos,LOL

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    Brie cheese on a hamburger in NYC, NY. Aaah, heaven!!!

  • Deb

    When my step-daughter was young she was very overweight and loved cheese. Each time that I would go to the fridge there would be no cheese. It was so aggravating. Try to make enchiladas…no cheese. Try to make tacos…no cheese. I began to hide it. I hid it behind the eggs…she found it. I hid it in the butter compartment…she found it. One day I hid it underneath all the vegetables….I knew that she would never look there. It worked for awhile,,but she eventually found it. I finally just gave up and quit buying it.

  • Erin Estilette

    Not that long ago, I was visiting my sister. She was cooking breakfast for the kids, and she had the block of cheese out, so that she could grate some on their eggs. She got distracted somehow, and the block of cheese went missing. We looked all over the counter, and then in the fridge, thinking maybe she had put it back by mistake. After a few minutes, she looked over at her 3 year old. It looked like he was watching cartoons quietly, but he was also holding the block of cheese, and taking big bites as he watched his show. It was hilarious!! The block of cheese had all these little teeth marks in it.

  • Brian Vaughn

    If I eat cheese at all, it’s either on eggs or a burger. Other than that, I hate it. For me cheese is such a weird food. Can’t eat it with crackers or bread. I think I started disliking it when I started having grilled cheese sandwiches everyday back as a kid. After a while, it became gross

  • Kenneth Mosby

    My Cheese story is after a few drinks I had some crackers and cheese. I ate too much and got constipated I was on the toilet all night long!

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    Once when I was a little girl, my Dad’s union went on strike. The union helped the families out by providing subsidies like rice, peanut butter and cheese. I don’t know what kind of cheese it was, but it made the best grilled cheese sandwiches I’d ever eaten. Maybe it was because we were hungry, but I haven’t had a grilled cheese sandwich that good since!

  • Kari McDowell

    My daughter, 16, told her little brother, 12, that the white cheese on tacos came from goats. For some reason he went ballistic and even now as a grown man won’t eat any cheese that isn’t yellow. Not sure what he had against goats.

  • Leslie Anne Soloman

    My cheese story is that I discovered that I truly enjoy pepper jack cheese. The jalepeno pepper gives it an exciting, zesty taste, so use it often in many recipes.

  • MyKinKStar

    Our family beer joint had access to order food from a grocery company in bulk and my Aunt Ruby always liked to order a big wheel of cheese to have at her home. Her and Uncle Mitchell had 2 children, and cheese was in a lot of meals like scalloped potatoes (YEAH!), but they also had people in and out all the time too, eating cheese with crackers or nuts. That wheel barely lasted a couple weeks in their house – about the same as our bar!

  • DM

    My son loved macaroni and cheese. How favorite dish. I used homemade cheese in it on rare occasions when I could afford it. He never knew what I did but knew something was different and would say Momma you fix the best mac and cheese in the whole wide world. Man I miss those days.

  • Pollypoptart

    For our two year anniversary, I deliberated over what to get my boyfriend and in the end got him a voucher deal for a wine flight and cheeseboard at a local winebar, knowing he was a fan of both cheese and wine. Turned out he got me exactly the same thing, for the same reason. We had to go there twice in less than a month to use our deals before they expired. What a hardship… 😉

  • dottie p

    i don’t have one. it’s normal in my family to have 3 or 4 pounds of cheese in your fridge at all times. from block, to sliced to shredded. isn’t that normal?

  • Nicole D. C

    Pregnant with my last all I wanted was cheese. Gooey, gooey, cheese. I loved cheese pizza, homemade mac and cheese, cheese crisps, sliced cheese, I would eat it any way. Best craving ever!

  • Heather Alex Nunn

    This is a bit of a sad story yet a meaningful one to myself so I decided to share it with hopes it can help some other soul out there.

    I have no children of my own but have been lucky enough to be a step parent to the most amazing boy named Talon. He has always been the light of my life and I have been fighting for him since he has been in my life. Sadly, the person I have been fighting is his birth mother, who I had originally hoped to have a good, respectful and cooperative relationship with; unfortunately though she couldn’t see past her own insecurities and only tried painting me the vilian to everyone. Anyway for years, since Talon was 2yrs old he suffered greatly from constipation. Spending countless hours in tears and pain to barely have a single or complete bowel movement. The first time my husband and I witnessed this I immediately knew what was wrong and how to fix it. So we put together a new resticted diet for him and passed along all this to Talon’s birth mother, and shockingly the response we got was shameful. She refused to admit that he is constipated and blamed it on Talon, claiming he is holding it in. While in our home he ate as a lactose intolerant person with no dairy, red meat etc and an eexcess of fibers, fruits, etc. After it became apparent that his birth mother was never going to give this severe situation the attention it demands I began to educate my son (step) about food, digestion, and the effects of the different food groups on the function of our bodies. He learned that he should avoid dairy products such as cheese and began to refuse to eat some things. The most common was cheese. He would almost religiously before we ate, while we were cooking or discussing what to eat, tell each one of us individually, “I can’t eat any cheese. I don’t want any cheese. It makes my poop hurt.” I to this day am still so PROUD of my boy!! It’s only sad that he had to be taught that at such a young age.

  • jennyjet

    My granddaughter Annabelle will always opt for a cheese stick over a chocolate candy bar any day.

  • Diane Lane

    My cheese story is my first date with my true love. We went to a play on Broadway and afterward we went to a nearby restaurant and share a slice of cheesecake.

  • rose morgan

    A tray of cheese sampler was ordered for me at a restaurant and all the cheeses looked so unappetizing all I ate were the crackers.

  • Paul Clément

    My cheese story is a bit repugnant. As the new kid on the block in my first high school teaching job, I was introduced to the resident mechanics teacher. As it was lunch time, I introduced myself and sat next to him not noticing the looks and light giggles of those around us. He asked if I liked cheese and I replied that I did very much. He added: ‘Then, you’ll love this!” He showed me a tin that read ”La Crotte du Diable, the Devil’s Droppings” which he proceeded to open as others in the room silently headed for the door. The resulting stench was unbelievably repulsive and I immediately understood my initiation to the fold as the laughter revealed the deal. Trust me, this has to be the raunchiest smelling cheese in existence. I understand from a quick search that it is no longer available. Wonder why?

  • Timothy Mccollum

    My favorite cheese story is when my I bought my favorite Munster cheese my brother took it to a cook out with his friends, that’s just wrong.

  • Stacie Snow

    my oldest grandson has to have mac and cheese everyday! I got so tired of making it everyday I was so happy when they started making ind cups for microwave!

  • Denise N.

    My cheese story: I bought 3 one pound blocks of sharp cheddar cheese. In the time it took to return home from the store I had two and a half blocks of cheese left. After the groceries were put away and i was done pouring myself a beverage and sat down to sort my mail; I had 2 blocks of cheese in the fridge. Later that night me and my husband shared a block of cheese leaving 1 block in the fridge. The next day I cubed the remaining block of cheddar cheese for our dinner-crockpot chili I just have to say: Thank goodness cheese doesn’t go on sale often! I would be as big as a house!

  • Ken Grant

    When I was little I was convinced I was allergic to parmesan cheese on pasta. I was so sure it was true. Later, when I got older I found out I liked it. Not sure where that weird idea got into my head. Now I love as much on my pasta as possible. Go figure.

  • Amy Dawson

    My favorite cheese story was the first time I fed cheese to one of my cats. She would meow for each piece. She did that for 10 years, every time I’d give her a few pieces.

  • Kerry Tompsett

    Mine is a story, a short one my mom told me about when I was younger. She said when I was little every time she got blue cheese dressing she always gave me the chunks. Apparently I loved them. To this day of course I love cheese!!

  • Nisha

    I am very fond of Kingsmeade’s Sunset Blue – a cheese that truly tastes every bit as stunning as it looks. And can I also cast a vote for Mainland’s Aged Cheddar? We go through vast slabs of this in our house. A piece of tasty cheddar on a wine biscuit is an excellent curative for whatever ails you.

  • justinkeene

    One of my favorite chesse is when i first tried Chicago’s stuffed crust with cheese in the crust. Boy that was yummy and good and very cheesey

  • Michaele Dalin Goodson

    I have fifteen cats, only one of them will eat cheese, she can smell it from a mile away, string cheese is her favorite.

  • Dicksy Maneschyn

    Our family loves Gouda cheese! One day I set the table for lunch with different items to make sandwiches. I went outside to call the kids in for lunch. In the meantime my little dog had climbed onto the table and snatched the block of cheese and hid it behind the recliner! Needless to say there was not a full block of cheese left…so no cheese for us. He was in the doghouse the rest of the day!

  • Marce McHone

    I love cheese, all kinds. I have no special.story, I just love them all equally with no favouritism or bias. Im an equal.opportunity cheese lover! 🙂

    Can you imagine dipping your Doritos into the warm nacho cheese and putting them in your mouth? OMG!!!!!

  • Carol Miller

    “Cheese is milk’s leap into immortality.” Because milk was so perishable man began to learn to preserve it as cheese and the product blossomed into a million different varieties. I absolutely hate milk but love cheese. Here are just some of my favorites: Mac and cheese, any cheese dip, cheese steak, cheese pizza, cheese cake, crackers and cheese, cheese sandwiches. The list is endless. I could eat cheese every day of the year and never get tired of it. Cheddar, blue cheese, Gouda, jarlesburg, Parmesan, Colby, Munster, just to name a few. When the Swiss settled Wisconsin, that state became the cheese capital of the U.S. Along with Vermont. Cheese could be exported and sold to long distance destinations because it had a much longer shelf value than milk. All I can say is thank God cheese was invented because it is my main source of calcium instead of milk.

    SAY CHEASE AND EARN WITH VINDALE!

    One day I wanted to do cheese and spinach curry, but I did not realize that there is no cheese in my fridge. That day I have decided to make vegetarian dishes for the guests who do not eat non-veg at all. I was getting very late, no time to go out to get the cheese. So I boiled 2 bags of milk very well and added lime juice and tied it tightly in a thin cloth, squeezed the water, left it in the fridge for an hour. I got a nice hard cheese block. I made the cheese and spinach curry. My friends were happy and asked that how the cheese is very tasty. I told them the process how I made it. They never know this before and this is the old fashion of making cheese at home. This old fashion made my friends to give us nice smiling ” cheese” for a photo. Whenever I see that photo we “cheese” and remember the cheese story.

  • Richard Vargas

    I don’t have a “cheese story”. I have a lot of “cut the cheese stories”, but I’ll save them for that question.

  • Cassandra Boswell

    How expensive it is lol

  • Melissa Furr

    My cheese story goes like this…if you’ve read any of my stories you know that my older brother was a devious little thing, that always used my vulnerability to his advantage. So, when we were kids, he told me that the moon was made out of blue cheese. Being the kid that I was, I believed every word that boy spoke. He had me believing that an airplane would fly over our house every day, and, depending on what color it’s lights were, that’s what the weather would be like that day. Also he told me that I could flash my headlights at a red light to make it change green…AND I BELIEVED HIM! So that’s my cheese story. I believed this till I was plenty old enough to know he was lying too. Probably around 18 years old. Ain’t that some stuff!

    About a month ago we were driving home and my daughter ( Kayla) and her friend asked if we could get Skyline to take home. Of course I ordered at the drive thru and got them 4 chili cheese sandwiches without mustard and onion. When they handed me them, Kayla said I will hold them, they’re mine, so I gave them to her in the back. We were about half way home when Kayla started complaining, she said, “Mom we are not going to eat these, they hardly have any cheese on them!” So I pulled over and looked at them and she was right, there was very little cheese and to be honest, I wouldn’t have ate them either. I turned around and went back to Skyline and went inside, I wasn’t rude or mean, I understand people make mistakes. I explained I had just ordered these from the drive thru and they were for my daughter and she was upset because there was very little cheese on them and I opened them up to show them and they were very nice and apologetic and said this has never happened before and got me new one’s and loaded them with tons of cheese, more than normal. I got back in the car and boy were they happy. Well later that night after they were in bed, my daughter and her friend came out and said, “Mom we can’t sleep, I have lied to you and I feel really bad about it. Earlier when we got Skyline, we were really hungry and we opened them up to look at them and was just going to take a bite of cheese and ended up eating most of it and then we realized they were not going to good without cheese so we told you that lie so we could get more cheese on them,” They were almost in tears, I thought that explains why the manager at Skyline said that has never happened. I did lecture her about lying, then thanked her for telling me. Than I thought if that’s the worst thing my daughter ever does, I can live with that.

    Making grilled cheese with my son for the first time. He was very skeptical since I don’t cook much, but he definitely enjoyed it since I let him help butter the bread.

  • Kathie

    When we were younger….Mom get up early to make us breakfast and put our lunches together. Don’t know how Mom would “often” manage this one…but in either her hurry or in her early morning “I am not awake yet”….But she would forget to unwrap those cheese slices so when you bit into your sandwich at lunch you got plastic along with your cheese…..we soon just stopped reminding her and just checked our sandwiches before we bit into them….GOOD THING THEY WERE NOT GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES!

  • OceanGirl

    Two summers ago, my family and I visited a cheese farm in Amsterdam. We had so much fun learning about the process in making traditional Dutch cheese! And we got to taste some samples and they were hmm…SO delicious! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFXGQOlDbb4

  • LuAnne Vickery

    My low carb diet. Cheese for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love cheese, but it is slightly overkill.

  • Theresa Holly

    I love Italian food and of course they use cheese in preparing most of their dishes. But I have a real funny story about pizza–a couple friends and myself went out for pizza. Well, the one friend order an extra one to take to two of his buddies who were working at local radio station– as we crossed the street pizza fell. No problem Ken picked it up put it back in box and took it to his friends–never told them it fell out of box and his buddies gobble it up!!

  • Katrina’s Mass Comm Page

    In high school they used to call me a rat. We would have events at the school with the fruit, cheese and cracker trays. I always grabbed cheese and crackers first. Whenever we had a get together at my house, we had salads, and I always added some type of cheese to my salads.

  • Irene McKenney

    We love cheese. We put it on our eggs. hamburgers & almost everything. But most of all our dog loves it too. Like us she can’t get enough cheese. Cheese goes with everything.

  • Jason Provo

    Something about dogs and their cheese. Lol. They just go crazy for it.

      Lol…My dog would have lived on cheese alone, if I would have allowed it.
