Department of Silly Cheeses

I’ve had plenty of cheeses with silly names that still taste good. Cato Corner Farm clearly likes to play with words. Witness their Womanchego, Drunk Monk, Dairyere, Despearado and Drunk Hooligan cheeses. Cypress Grove’s Lambchopper heads the “cute” category, followed closely by Divine Providence from Rhode Island. Stinking Bishop from Glouchestershire lives up to its name.

Today I found an English cheese named after some natural caves in which it is aged, which has risen to the top of my weird cheese name list. Fromagerians, I give you:

Wookey Hole Cheddar !

Do you have any competing candidates?
