Thanks for popping in. Yes, I though that title would grab your attention! Click bait at its best! Here’s a cheeky little blog about something completely different – and very smelly! Interestingly, at Christmas, I was shopping at Macknades Food Hall in Faversham for special things and treats, when I saw a cheese called just that: MINGER.
- it made me laugh.
- it made me buy it.
Perfect marketing. Backed by the fact that this particular cheese is absolutely delicious – and I mean excellent! So good in fact, that I went back yesterday to Macknades with Mum, and the very first port of call was the cheese counter, to see whether they had any MINGER!! From home to Faversham is nearly 50 miles one way – and the girl was on a mission! Delighted to advise that they had just had a fresh delivery. Woohoo!
Back at Christmas, the kids were home from the States, and I bought it more as a gimmick than anything, to put a smile on their faces. But when we opened the package and tried it – well it was gone in 5 minutes flat!
It’s expensive. But hey. I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs and I don’t go out on the tiles. So if I can’t enjoy a little MINGER every so often, what’s the world coming to??
Sourdough bread, salty butter and Minger = heaven.
It’s not too stinky. There are much MUCH stinkier cheeses out there! Have you ever heard of Harzer Käse? That has got to be the stinkiest cheese ever, and my Mum loves it! Whenever we went to Germany, we always had to bring back Harzerkäse. Honestly, it is rank! Even if you put it in a bag in a bag in a sealed container, and buried it in the boot of the car, the fragrance would seep through the back seats and make your eyes water. If you put it in the fridge it would make you gag every time you opened the door! Mum would eat it by the chunk – and we would run for the hills!
I remember she once told me, “It’s really good for the figure because it has no fat.” Give me full fat MINGER any day of the week!!
What’s your favourite cheese? I do like a good cheddar too. Wookey Hole’s a firm favourite here! And red leicester..
I’ve worked up an appetite just writing this! Gotta have a little nibble before Dave gets home…
In Queso emergency, eat cheese!
