This interview with Wisconsin cheese-maker Roger Krohn starts out innocently enough — there's some history of the plant, some discussion of the intricacies of making different types of cheeses — when, out of nowhere, Krohn tries to nonchalantly throw in a reference to bubble gum-flavored string cheese. Apparently being developed by the Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, this mysterious breed of cheese also comes in flavors like sour apple and blue raspberry. I think I'd rather eat Velveeta to get my calcium, thanks. [via Heavy Table]

  1. That's odd because one of the flavor profiles of some Belgian beers is "bubble gum". Much in the same way some wines taste of "cat urine".

  2. Moira

    Bubble gum cheese? Are they insane?

  3. Okay. I understand fruit-flavored cheeses, but I do not understand cheese-flavored gum, unless you're at a tour of Willy Wonka's factory.
