Not sure I really have a favorite, though I usually go for the stronger cheeses, 7yr old cheddar ranks high on the list, bleu is way up there.

It's hard to beat a camping trip with bagels for breakfast topped with brie and smoked salmon.

I had to look up Casu Marzu, I have never not been willing to eat something, I'm not sure I could eat that (who the heck am I kidding I probably would try it) but it's still pretty gross

The cheese sealed in wax is permitted to bring back, and it lasts just fine for the cruise. We got one of the large wheels from Curacao and we got smaller wheels in varied flavors in Aruba. There is a cheese shop in Aruba everyone goes to, but I went to a market off the beaten path and just picked it from the standard deli section. It was all very good and I was glad I brought it home!

Most Favorites:

Maytag Blue
Gorganzola
Parmigiano Regianno
I also actually like Montery Jack...I shred it on top of my delicious chicken tortilla soup



Least Favorites:

Velveeta
Cheeze Whiz LOL!!!
I don't like most Swiss cheeses


Along the lines of the inmate named "Velveeta", I'm a R.N. and we had a prison inmate give birth at our hospital and she named her newborn girl "Febreeze". No joke. The state showed up the next day to take custody of the child, but not because of her name.

Real Cheddar!!!
American cheese is the devil. I despise it and all of its "pasteurized processed" wannabes.

A good stinky cheese is my favorite, really like Roquefort. Also really like Gouda because the DW won't let me keep to many stinky cheeses in the house. haha Least favorite is American plastic cheese slices..

So many choices -

Love:

Really good Parmigiano Reggiano - the kind with the crunchy bits throughout and wonderful nutty flavor!

Gruyere - 'specially on top of French Onion Soup!

Baby Swiss

Gouda

Oh Wow - I could keep going.

I have recently had a couple of salads where I have to admit the gorganzola crumbles actually added to the over all taste of the salad.

Can't even imagine why someone would put limberger in their mouth!

I have to admit the 5 yr old in still loves a grilled cheese on processed white bread with Velveeta and a bowl of tomato soup with elbow macaroni's! Pure Comfort Food!

Favorite is Brie. I haven't met many cheeses I don't love. Simple yet yummy is the Dark Chocolate Cheddar from Trader Joe's (I've only been able to find it once a year).

And thank you for telling me about Casu Marzu. I'll pass.

I haven't met a cheese that I didn't love! Not counting the fake, processed stuff that isn't really cheese. lol. I haven't met the maggot cheese, though, and hope I never do.

Pleasant Ridge Reserve from Wisconsin is an artisan Gruyere style cheese that is fantastic. It has won many awards and some consider it the best cheese made in the US. Very complex flavors and has some of the crystalline mouth feel of a great Parmo. Yum yum with a good Pinot Noir and a shaving of Proscuitto.

I just discovered Manchego a couple of weeks ago, thanks to a good friend. OMG it's heaven. With grapes, dried figs, roasted almonds, wine, or all by itself.

I have never liked cheddar, until I tried Tillamook Vintage White cheddar. DH loves cheddar and now he's so spoiled by this one he doesn't want to eat any other kind. I tasted it and finally "get" cheddar!

I love almost all Swiss cheese.

Hate those cheese slices that taste and feel the same with or without the plastic wrapper.

I brought back 6 of the 1/4 wheels from Curacao They were vacuum packed. The reason that you can bring them back is because they are made from pasturized milk or aged longer than 90 days if made from fresh milk. I brought them right off the ship on my carry on and claimed them on my customs. No questions asked.

My favourites would be-
Roaring 40's Blue cheese
Blue d'Auvernagne
Drunken Goat cheese
Humboldt Fog(really anything made by Cypress)
Sage Derby
Freshly made Mozzarella
Bufalo d' Mozzarella(water buffalo mozzarella from italy)

Least favourites are mass produced american "cheeses" ie. Kraft or the stuff that they call Muenster but taste nothing like the real thing(although you have to catch me on the right day for me to eat real Munster as it is stinky).

One of the best cheeses I have ever tasted was a Smoked Cheddar from Tasmania. Have tried to find this in stores around here and all I get are quizzical looks from the chesse "experts" and questions like "why would you want that"?

I do enjoy Swiss Cheese and Jarlsburg.
