Weird food combinations are all the rage, but sometimes something interesting comes along that makes you stand up and take notice. Like the Chocolate Cheese out of Australia.
Curds & Whey in Melbourne, Australia is the genius behind chocolate-infused cheese. It’s Italian blue cheese that’s been ripened in chocolate liqueur, rubbed with cocoa and decorated with chocolate chips. They call it Choco 21, and cheese and food lovers alike are clambering to get their hands on this new deliciousness.
Anna Burley, owner of Curds & Whey, told Mashable that while there’s chocolate infused in the cheese, it isn’t as intense as one would imagine. She added, “The blue itself is quite mild, and the liqueur adds the chocolate flavour without being sweet.”
If you’re sitting there staring at your screen and wondering how or why this could be considered delicious, just know that Curds & Whey have already sold out! “The customer reaction to the product had been very positive before the post went viral, we had been expecting it to be popular but were surprised at just how much of a conversation starter it has proved to be.”
Think of it this way, it’ll be a conversation starter at your next party and if that’s not enough, it’ll look really good on your cheese platter and honestly, that is something to look forward to.
