Chocolate Cheese

My best friend and I went to an Italian speciality store in Waterloo called Vincenzo's, apparently it has been there for years, and, as a foodie, I don't know why I hadn't checked it out before. They had lots of interesting things, I bought some dried chilies, some saffron, some Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract and some Hazelnut Oil, which I have to try in a vinaigrette or some such recipe. But what intrigued me most there, was this cheese that I found, made with chocolate! It's a combination of a mild cheese and is made with chocolate. Looks more like dark than milk chocolate. I tried it today, and, I must say, it tasted pretty good. Had the consistency of cheese, and the not an overwhelming flavour of chocolate. I don't know, though, how it would go on a meat sandwich, it probably would be good as an appetizer or snack.

Hmmm, chocolate cheese. They have the same thing in China. But I have
always been afraid to try it, at least the one in the package. Come to think of it, I did try some the other day freshly made at a store, but I didn't like it. But now you have motivated me to try the one in the package.
