First, thank you to my dear friend Brian! Thanks to him, I discovered something he tasted and this is leading to this worthwhile article. Indeed, when he was younger, Brian’s English teacher told the class that she had eaten some weird food in the United States of America and she brought back some Chocolate Cheese for the class: the pupils actually tasted it without hesitating. Without a doubt, those are courageous teenagers 😀 And to my mind, this is truly disgusting (once again, this is only my humble point of view 😀 )
I admit I regularly write about strange food and peculiar food associations and my everyday life is a taste challenge… But even if I created weird recipes and I ate grasshoppers – don’t forget that I also ate chocolate and gherkin – I have to admit I am not inclined to try what Brian ate.
Yes, I am talking about eating chocolate cheese! Indeed, you are not dreaming, this is coming from the United States… Nevertheless, who had the crazy idea to mix those two ingredients in the first place?
Chocolate cheese is something I probably wouldn’t have thought of 😀 I know that chocolate has been paired with many other foodstuffs over the centuries, fruits, cakes or even meat! But chocolate and cheese? Come on! Cheese is made of milk and most chocolates are made mostly made of milk too. Then, chocolate flavoured cheese is not such a weird concept if you want to find elements in favours of this idea…
Brian ate chocolate cheese but in reality it was chocolate fudge made with cheese (cream cheese and cheddar). They also use Velveeta cheese to make this fudge, this same cheese we use to cook Macaroni and Cheese (my favourite!) or Meat and Cheese Loaf for instance.
When searching on the Internet, I discovered that Chocolate Cheese Fudge is said to be ‘savoury with an unmistakable bite of cheddar, not too sweet, and verges on a pleasant tartness nestled in creamy cocoa.’ Do you think we can really believe them? 😀
Do you think you could gather your courage and try it? At least, can you imagine recipes with Chocolate Cheese?
This article is simply the beginning of a huge investigation to discover weird food from all around the world… And believe me, hundreds of articles will never be enough to tell you everything and enlighten you, dear reader.
