Well, there are the stages of eating cheese.

Eating cheese
Having eaten too much cheese
Eating more cheese

Re scent of cheese:

Saw one of Rick Steves' travel shows, where he went to France. He talked to a French woman about cheese, and she said a particular one "smells like the feet of angels". (Rather dramatically.)

I'm not sure how one would know that. Is that a particularly French way of speaking, or just hers? Or did she wash angels' socks?

Well, there are non-dessert and non-beverage uses, like Latin America mole' sauce.

And then there are...interesting...non-food uses (Time).

Best of all, the original TV MacGyver put it to an interesting use. (Pilot episode, 4th paragraph.) I don't know if that MacGyverism would work as is. In the original series, they left something out of any potentially dangerous MacGyverism, so that it wouldn't work.

True. If you sprint it, then stage 2 can result in a particularly unpleasant illustration of how cottage cheese is made.

No, no, no, no. Plastic is useful. And probably contains more actual cheese.

At least some of it is named "Cheesefood" which implies that it isn't cheese.

I'm not sure it's food either.

”American Processed Cheesefood Product,” to be precise. And they happily advertise that it’s made with “real milk.”

No. Just no.

Now, now. I know this is Hell, but let's be charitable here. Simontoad has clearly *never* tasted the Best Chocolate.

I find it difficult to choose between chocolate and cheese... but then, I don't have to!

I once purchased chocolate from the best chocolate shop in Brugge. We knew it was the best because it didn't have chocolate shaped like penises and breasts in the window. Seriously, there were these wonderful-looking shops all over the place, but they had this fetish for genitalia.

Look, chocolate is pretty great. It's just that you can only go so far with it. You play with the elements and you can achieve wonderful results. But people do so much more with cheese, in terms of variety of flavor and style. Its just no contest. The cheese platter in a silver service restaurant will net you a much richer food experience than anything else on the desert menu.

I was talking with a friend about this issue, and they reminded me of Chinese Chocolate. That trumps American cheese I reckon, even of the spray-on variety.

I just went and put this argument to my wife in the loungeroom. First, she just yelled "chocolate", then as I developed the argument she flipped me the bird. Then when I said the thing about silver service restaurants she returned to her book and said "Don't be absurd."

My wife is a pretty inactive member of the ship, but she won't let me disclose her user handle, as she doesn't want her reputation tarnished.

Honestly, with all preferences aside, you know not of what you speak. The best chocolate will not be found in the gold standard establishments of yesteryear, not in the famous places. At best, those are merely good. The best, the innovations, take happen in the small places that push the boundaries. Not for the sake of pushing boundaries, but the sake of finding what is on the other side.
Those that do not merely shove a "flavour" inside the bon bon, but those who match the type chocolate with the essence of fruit and spice. Those who do not blend for homogeneity, but who exalt the single bean.
The masterpieces will be found in a small, seaside California village, a side street in a British city, in a French market, far away from the tourist crowds.
In fillings that make the tongue dance, in pastry creations that bring the senses to life.
And in savoury dishes like a Oaxacan mole sauce, a rich Texas chilli or a spice rub for a slow-roasted pork.
The reality of Chocolate is far more than your tiny imagination can conjure.

True. There is (or at any rate was) such a shop in Tours on the Rue Colbert. It's not far from the Musee de Gemmail a must-see for glass enthusiasts.
