    Comte is my favorite flavor of cheese!

  • lapetitebaker  on  4/12/2017 at 8:12 AM

    I love a good sharp cheddar.

  • Joy001  on  4/12/2017 at 8:21 AM

    Such a difficult question! Overall, I'd say it's cheddar.

  • dbielick  on  4/12/2017 at 8:55 AM

    Impossible to answer. Right now, I am on a Manchego kick.

  • uclangel422  on  4/12/2017 at 9:23 AM

    I love sharp chedder and Muenster

  • keelz23  on  4/12/2017 at 9:57 AM

    That is such a tough question, but I usually end up going back to cheddar. It's great to use in pretty much everything!

  • Nhcookingdiva  on  4/12/2017 at 10:02 AM

    Sad to say, but my favorite cheese is good ol American. Gruyere is really nice too.

  • lgroom  on  4/12/2017 at 10:02 AM

    The answer is ... yes.

  • jthelwell  on  4/12/2017 at 10:39 AM

    My favorite cheese is feta

  • XXOOL  on  4/12/2017 at 11:48 AM

    Really difficult to choose just one cheese. I guess if I was stranded on a desert island with just one cheese it would have to be gruyere. But I always keep a block of Cabot Cheddar (yes), parmesan and fontina in my cheese drawer which covers just about anything I want to make and together make a pretty swell grilled cheese. I try to keep feta on hand too but that gets eaten immediately.

  • beehivecabin  on  4/12/2017 at 12:31 PM

    I love sharp cheddar. There are so many great cheeses.

  • Sharmiro  on  4/12/2017 at 12:54 PM

    Bleu, if I have to choose...but really, who wnats to?

  • AnnaZed  on  4/12/2017 at 1:18 PM

    I love the nutty taste of Gruyere Cheese.

  • heyjude  on  4/12/2017 at 1:42 PM

    I love a buttery triple creme

  • daniellespinato1  on  4/12/2017 at 2:42 PM

    My favorite cheese is smoked gouda but I have to say that Cabot's Everything Bagel cheddar is amazing!

  • mph993  on  4/12/2017 at 2:46 PM

    I love blues, like Bleu d’Élizabeth

  • SilverSage  on  4/12/2017 at 3:14 PM

    I love a triple cream Blue-Brie, like a Cambozola.

  • hirsheys  on  4/12/2017 at 6:40 PM

    Aged comte.

  • mkr  on  4/12/2017 at 6:45 PM

    I love stinky washed-rind cheeses the best!

  • SheilaS  on  4/12/2017 at 6:49 PM

    I love Cheddar but I adore Gorgonzola even more!

  • NancyLynn  on  4/12/2017 at 6:51 PM

    Point Reyes Blue cheese is my favorite, but anything from Cypress Groves is also great

  • southerncooker  on  4/12/2017 at 8:43 PM

    I love Cabots seriously sharp white cheddar.

  • imjammin2  on  4/12/2017 at 9:17 PM

    I love all cheese but if I had to choose a favorite it would be sharp cheddar!

  • Thev  on  4/12/2017 at 9:44 PM

    My favorite is smoked cheddar.

  • JenE  on  4/12/2017 at 10:17 PM

    I love Havarti

  • jezpurr  on  4/12/2017 at 10:46 PM

    My fave cheese is Pepper Jack!!!^_^

  • ktwalla  on  4/13/2017 at 4:40 AM

    Smoked gouda

  • lhudson  on  4/13/2017 at 6:30 AM

    I love them all!!!!

  • love2chow  on  4/13/2017 at 11:46 AM

    Cheddar for its all around versatility, from the beautifully aged extra sharp to the meltable milder versions. But I am hard pressed to name a cheese I do not like.

  • sarahawker  on  4/13/2017 at 3:06 PM

    A good sharp Cheddar or Swiss.

  • Kayevee  on  4/13/2017 at 5:27 PM

    I love cheese. Sharp cheddar is my fav.

  • rrwrites  on  4/13/2017 at 5:35 PM

    You mean I have to pick just one? Brie!

  • ChoiceJoyce  on  4/13/2017 at 11:41 PM

    Mozzarella, or more specifically, scarmorza. Yummm.

  • FireRunner2379  on  4/14/2017 at 4:47 AM

    My favorite cheese is Cheddar, the sharper the better!

  • annieski  on  4/14/2017 at 5:18 AM

    It's wrong to choose. This week it has been muenster, last gruyere

  • kayanelson  on  4/14/2017 at 7:45 AM

    Hard to pick just one--parmesan might be it.

  • coupcrazy  on  4/14/2017 at 9:13 AM

    I love a good smoked gouda cheese.

  • matag  on  4/14/2017 at 11:41 AM


  • sgump  on  4/14/2017 at 12:53 PM

    Because I can't easily access my favourite British cheeses in the USA (Belstone, Cornish Yarg, Devon Oke, Lord of the Hundreds, Spenwood [and some of these, alas, may no longer be being produced]), I'll go with a nice aged Manchego.

  • bstewart  on  4/14/2017 at 2:08 PM

    That's a really tough question… and it's always changing… I've always loved swiss, but anything local and tangy is what I'm into right now.

  • hippiechick1955  on  4/14/2017 at 6:59 PM

    Havarti but I really like almost every cheese. Second Place is (Smoked) Gouda

  • herby  on  4/14/2017 at 8:10 PM

    Such a hard Joyce since I love many! My "desert island" cheese has to be Manchego.

  • t.t  on  4/15/2017 at 1:33 AM

    I love them all, but if I have to pick one for the sake of this comment, I'll go with freshly made mozzarella di buffala.

  • Julia  on  4/15/2017 at 7:33 AM

    The blue cheeses.

  • Aproporpoise  on  4/15/2017 at 3:29 PM

    I'm in love with a Goat Gouda that I found at the market recently. Also Scharffe Maxx - so sharp and nutty!

  • fiarose  on  4/16/2017 at 5:16 PM

    so hard to choose--I love any goat's milk cheese, especially goat's milk feta; once, though, I did try a rosemary fig creamy goat cheese that was absolutely amazing. and of course, cabot extra-sharp cheddar, always a classic.

  • Sakurajima  on  4/17/2017 at 8:10 AM

    Gouda is always my favorite :)

  • motherofpearl81  on  4/17/2017 at 9:20 AM

  • Siegal  on  4/17/2017 at 8:17 PM

    I love blue cheeses

  • Maaseelulu  on  4/17/2017 at 10:39 PM

    I can't believe I have to decide... Let's just say mozzarella, since I had some this morning for breakfast.

  • Uhmandanicole  on  4/18/2017 at 12:10 AM

    I can't decide it's too hard! I'd say comte or gruyere are one of my favorites, although if I ever see buffalo mozzarella on any menu, I always order that dish.

  • JanScholl  on  4/18/2017 at 1:32 AM

    smoky gouda

  • cezovski  on  4/18/2017 at 2:52 AM

    Really.....I never met a cheese I didn't like! Good quality is most important-English Cheddar, creamy Brie, manchego, ........

  • lebarron2001  on  4/20/2017 at 10:03 AM

  • skipeterson  on  4/26/2017 at 3:51 PM

    Gouda, or a quality blue cheese, or cheddar, hard to commit to just one...

  • HomespunHouse  on  4/27/2017 at 11:51 PM

    My favorite cheese is muenster, mixed with a little cream and coriander, and baked inside soft brioche rolls.

  • cocecitycook  on  4/28/2017 at 4:03 AM

    Fontina cheese is a favorite in my house!

  • Dmartin997  on  4/29/2017 at 11:21 AM

    Picking a favorite cheese is like picking a favorite cat (no kids here), I love them ALL! But if you put a gun to my head I'd have to say any variety of blue cheese.
