We've all faced that agonizing decision — in online quizzes and in real life — when we have to choose between our two greatest loves: chocolate and cheese. But how could we choose just one? It's like choosing a favorite child; the best that savory and sweet have to offer.
Thankfully, the days of painful decision-making are over... Because we can have both. TOGETHER.
Melbourne-based "dairy specialist" Curds & Whey has officially crafted and released a chocolate cheese called Choco 21.
A first ever chocolate cheese has just landed at @curdswhey! It's an Italian blue cheese ripened in chocolate liqueur, then rubbed in cocoa and decorated with chocolate chips. Fresh from Italy just last week and never before found in Melbourne! Be the first to try it at the market this week. #vicmarket #new #chocolatecheese #cheese #cheeselover #chocolate #chocolateliqueur #cocoa #delicious #yummy #bluecheese #italiancheese #italian #yummy #melbourne #melbournelife #melbournefood #foodie #melbournecity
No, you're not dreaming. This magical creation is an Italian blue cheese with chocolate liqueur, topped with cocoa powder and a layer of chocolate chips.
It seems like these dairy specialists have given the flavor profile a lot of thought. "The blue itself is quite mild, and the liqueur adds the chocolate flavor without being sweet," Curds & Whey's owner, Anna Burley told Mashable.
But don't worry, you get the sweetness from the chocolate chips on top.
As it turns out, combining the world's best two foods results in a product with high demand. After just one week on shelves, Choco 21 is entirely sold out.
They're expected to restock the cheese in a few weeks, but you should hurry if you want to squeeze in some of this evil deliciousness before that 2017 diet kicks in. (h/t mashable)
