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.

I'm going to be turning 71 in November and have been eating limburger since I was about 5 years old. My dad ate limburger as a traditional Friday night snack with "little" rye bread and onion. Living in the Philadelphia region the only limburger was Mohawk brand which I haven't seen in years. Chalet limburger is the best I have found since and is even better than I remember. When people turn up their nose I always tell them that it is a very mild cheese so ignore the smell and enjoy.

Limburger never goes out of style. It always tastes and smells good (to me) It's reputation means that I get more. Keep up the good work

Limburger stinks
By Paul Nevai

Actually, this (I believe) one and only US made Limburger is quite mild compared to what I had when growing up in one of those European nations. Nevertheless is is a superb cheese. I love it. I ordered 36 pieces and froze immediately 34 of them. I hope they will last a year and that they will survive the freezing experiment. I should report back a year from now how it went. The price was reasonable even if it was about twice more expensive than in Germany.
