I'm having a blast with this big Cheese Controversy, by the way. And I hope people realize that I'm having fun with it. At best, this will encourage people to hit the Dairy Bar at the Fair so they can see this mysteriously orange-y, yellow version of gouda.
In all seriousness... After reading Dan's findings and his discussion with the person from the cheesemaker (Swissland), I did a little searching for this cheesemaker. I visited their website. Guess what cheese isn't listed anywhere in their online store? Feta? Present? Mozzarella? Present! A mix of cheddar and bleu? Present! GOUDA? Nowhere!!! I'm telling you... Colby is trying to take over the world and it is starting with our beloved Indiana State Fair. I think Colby is going to work its way through all the state until it comes to the greatest battle- Wisconsin. We can't let Colby win! We have to put our collective foot down and stand up for the rights of a pale-yellow, creamy cheese like Gouda! Fellow cheese lovers!!! Who is with me?? (Or has Colby already infested your cheese sensors?? Is this problem more widespread than I'd realized??)
Just to be clear...
