A first ever chocolate cheese has just landed at @curdswhey! It's an Italian blue cheese ripened in chocolate liqueur, then rubbed in cocoa and decorated with chocolate chips. Fresh from Italy just last week and never before found in Melbourne! Be the first to try it at the market this week. #vicmarket #new #chocolatecheese #cheese #cheeselover #chocolate #chocolateliqueur #cocoa #delicious #yummy #bluecheese #italiancheese #italian #yummy #melbourne #melbournelife #melbournefood #foodie #melbournecity
If your first instinct was "ick!" then brace yourself, because it gets weirder. The cheesemaker chose to add chocolate to one of the stinkiest cheeses around, Italian blue cheese. Mashable reports the concoction is called Choco 21, and it's aged in chocolate liqueur. If that's not chocolatey enough for you, don't worry: It's also covered in cocoa and topped with chocolate chunks.
Would you dare try this experimental cheese? Well, according to the shop's Instagram account, it's completely sold out. Comments on the photo suggest people are extremely upset there's no more Choco 21 in the world, so maybe we're being too close-minded. Or maybe Australians just have very different taste?
