For those of you above who have experience eating Limburger, my question is this: I know that the sense of smell is closely associated with the sense of taste so If it stinks so bad, what is the appeal?
Having tasted this, I will say that the taste is almost, (but not quite) as bad as the smell. The bonus is that the aftertaste stays with you for a good long while as reminder of your follies..
But, I guess it is an acquired taste. I would suppose, given enough peer pressure, I would eat it again. I mean, if I was raised on it, and everyone around me was eating it for lunch (like the old days), then I could envision myslef eating it more regularly.
But the fact is, nobody I know eats this today. So it remains a stinky oddity.
