    We have a cheesebarn store here I love! Some of the peppery hit cheeses are good and there are just so many flavors. When we go to Amish country I eat so much of it I swear I'll never touch it again!

    I'm in Australia and cheese is very popular here as well. You get a pretty good variety even in the supermarkets these days. The range has certainly increased over the last 5-10 years, for sure.

    I love sampling the local cheeses when I visit different places.

    Cheese platters are quite common when you eat out or if you are going somewhere and bringing a plate.

    One thing I personally hadn't tried was cheese, crackers and pickles/chutney until recently. My friend treated me to that with Bramston/Branston (can't remember) pickle and it was just awesome. I'm more used to just having a range of cheeses with crackers with some fruit on the platter.

    My favourite is camembert, harvarti and the cheese that comes with apricots and almonds in it - almost like a guilty pleasure that one. I've actually never heard of Wensleydale cheese... I have to restrain myself so I don't run off to the store to see if I've just been missing it all these years!

    Major cheese and crackers want now.... Major need!!!

    Mmmmmmmm.

    It's Branston pickle. Kind of a generic pickle brand over here! Nice in a cheese sandwich!

    I spent the last 7 years of my life working in the deli section of Sobeys (Canadian higher-end grocery store). The selection of cheese that we carried would get pretty crazy at times. I was lucky and got to try anything I wanted :p

    I think my absolute favourite was the old Applewood Smoked Cheddar, just amazing. Or the kaltbach cave gruyere....

    And if we didn't have it in store? It could always be ordered
