Let the games begin!!! We had the following samples: Cheddar, American, Jalapeno, Smoked Gouda, Smoked Cheddar, Muenster, Asiago, Gruyere, Colby, and Colby Jack.
At this point things were going well. We had only sampled the basics... Cheddar and American.
This was the aftermath of sampling the very spicy jalapeno cheese. This is by far one of my favorites but left the kids feeling a bit caliente! They all agreed that it tasted great at first but then "gotcha ya in the back of the throat".
We resorted to water and crackers to "cleanse our pallets" in between cheeses.
Then it all went downhill. This was the aftermath of the Asiago. The Gruyere had everyone running to the trashcan due to taste and smell...pee-yew! We agreed that just because it is "fancy" doesn't mean it is good!
Overall, Cheddar, Colby Jack, and Muenster were the top favs. What can I say, we are not sophisticated cheese eaters! :)
