I love most cheeses, however jarlsberg (or Swiss cheese) is the one I order every week in my supermarket delivery.
I love the nutty flavour and have been eating this one most days for years now!
There is also a low fat alternative one however I do not like this one as much - the other similar one which is cheaper, is Maasdam.
I have probably had it without realising it, when I was out eating at a restaurant, if it was one of the ingredients in my meal. I could possibly have had it on a cheese platter at some stage. Cheeses on a cheese platter aren't labelled, so I could have eaten anything without knowing. When I am out at a social gathering, I am so busy chatting, that I don't really ponder what I am eating......ha ha !!
This is a lovely cheese!! I always remember the wonderful stories my dad would tell about the holes in the 'swiss' cheese!! So enjoying the sweet, nutty flavour of this and the other 'Holey' cheeses has been a part of my life for over 50 years now!! Yum!!! I actually have Masdaam in my fridge at the moment as it was on special for $15.99 kg!!
Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Pity you are not in a fairy tale where you could share it with helpful magical mice!!!! However, dogs love cheese, so maybe you could share some of His Lordship's bounty with THEM!!!!! Dear, oh, dear!!!!!
Diana, That's why I haven't bought it for many years! When I left home after I married 48 years ago, my mum use to buy it for me, sometimes. I've only bought it for my self, once since then! I'll look for it again, next time we do the supermarket shopping, as I can buy anything I like now!
