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.

A favorite along side of other strong cheeses such as Royal stilton and extra sharp cheddar.

One of the BEST!
By Jeanette Hammons

I have been craving Limburger cheese for a year now. None of the stores in town sell it. Hy-Vee use to sell it around the holidays. I couldn't wait any longer. So I ordered it through your Co. I am so glad I did! It is very ,very tasty. You can't go wrong buying this cheese. If you love Limburger Cheese and don't mind the smell than give it a try. I put mine on Dark German bread and it's to die for. Also good on hard rolls. I'am sure I will be back for more.

8 oz. Limburger Cheese

Coming from Europe, I like this Limburger cheese. A I enjoy every bit of it. I eat it with boiled potatoes, or cut small slices on crackers. Another way I like to fix it is, put in the freezer for about 30 - 45 minutes, so it's very hard, then cut it into very small pieces, about 1/4 in. square, mix it with olive oil and vinegar, pepper and garlic powder, and some very small diced up onions, makes a delicious salad.

Count me as fan!

I love this stuff. I remember as a kid my mother would buy Mohawk Valley Limburger Cheese Spread in the little jar. Loved it then and still do. Yours is outstanding, and fairly priced. Will definitely order more.

This cheese has such a bad reputation. I see videos on Youtube and what not, where they use this cheese for "challenges." The smell is nowhere near as bad as people (who don't appreciate cheese) make it out to be. I ate about 1/4 of a half pound with some crackers and I loved it. It's not for everyone but I love pungent cheese. My wife is not a fan of pungent cheese but she had not problem eating it. The flavor is fresh and the texture is amazing. Nice and smooth with beautiful coloring. I advise people to give this cheese a try. Yes is smells different, no worse than fetta, blue cheese, goat cheese ect......
