Cheese Me

We'd like to introduce you to our latest delivery, Mimolette - a cheese with a lot of character (and we're not just talking about its flavor).

It was created at the request of Louis XIV, who wanted an Edam style cheese that he

could call his. To differentiate it from Edam, it's colored with annatto, giving it its

signature orange color. Is it just us, or does this cheese look like a cantaloupe?

What else you ask? Cheese mites are intentionally introduced to the cheese to add flavor

to the paste (interior) and color to the exterior.

Mmm, crunchy!
