Limburger cheese is a soft, surface ripened cheese. Limburger cheese is world renowned for being one of the most pungent cheeses in existence. Although there were 100s of Wisconsin cheese plants making Limburger cheese just 50 years ago, Chalet Cheese in Monroe Wisconsin operates the last Limburger cheese plant in the United States. Though Limburger cheese is definitely categorized among those foods that are an "acquired taste," Limburger cheese has legions of fans.

Surprise, I loved it. !
By Sue Roderick

Since I had never tasted Limburger before, and since I had to acquire a taste for Roquefort I was curious and tasted the Limburger cheese in my shipment first. --loved it I did not find a heavy smell, and loved the taste and texture of it. It will definitely be included in my future orders.

Mamma is happy!
By Heidi Farrand

My mother is from Germany and loves ripe cheese. We never find it here in SC and my mother was recently talking about it. I read the reviews and took a chance on ordering it. I ordered 3 bricks for her and it arrived on the day I requested. I gave it to her at Christmas and before she unwrapped it she knew by the smell! (I kept baking soda next to it in the refrigerator). My mother cried! Then ate a brick in one day. She said it is what she remembers getting at the farmers market growing up in PA. We will order regularly! Thank you!
