I feel very strongly for people who are lactose intolerant.
It could be because they are pretty much allergic to everything decadent, and thus, completely worth eating. Or it could also be because they can’t share a damn pizza with me when they know I can’t finish it on my own. How inconsiderate.
So, since I have compatible taste preferences with children when it comes to cheese, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say Mozarrella’s my favourite. The cheesier the pizza, the faster I run towards it.
But the best thing about cheese, is that there are so many types you can choose from and most of them dance the cha-cha well on my taste buds.
And also because when you refer to names of different cheeses like they’re your friends, people will think you’re cultured.
They also come in a variety of options (and I enjoy freedom of choice! Do you?): cheese cubes, cheese sticks, and today, cheese pencils.
So, very briefly, 3 types of Parmesan Cheese are shaped into pencils, where the “leads” boast three different flavors: truffles, pesto and chilli. A sharpener-lookalike grater (clever!) will be included, and the back of the packaging lists the required amount of cheese for each dish and also the amount of calories the portion contains.
Within the first 2 weeks of its launch, 500 of the limited first edition were completely sold out.
1) It really sucks to be lactose intolerant.
2) A completely irrelevant cheese-related quote:
Cheese – milk’s leap toward immortality.
– Clifton Paul Fadiman
Mr. Fadiman is a wise man. A wise man with wise words.
