I bought some cheese curds last week - so called "squeaky cheese". What a rip-off. They don't squeak or make any noise at all.

Um, you need to eat them. If you stare at them, they just sit there. Silently.

Try chewing reeeeeeeeeal slooooooow.

If the curds still don't squeal, take it back to the store! "My cheese is completely silent! You sold me mute cheese!"

Kind of like the Big Bang theory. Not very big, nor very loud. What a rip-off indeed.

ok, chewing sloooowly. nope. still quiet. I think these curds are definitely defective.

Or maybe they just sold me plain old wads of cheese hoping I would be suggestible enough to "hear" squeaking.

http://www.squeakycheese.com/docs/aboutcurd.htm

Squeakycheese (cheese curd) is fresh, young cheddar cheese in the natural, random shape and form before being processed into blocks and aged. (Cheddar cheese is typically aged from 60 days to 4 years before being sold.) It's most amazing quality of course is that it squeaks when it's eaten. SqueakyCheese is it's very best at room temperature or even slightly warmed. Unlike the aged variety of Cheddar, curds lose their desirable qualities if refrigerated or stored for a long period of time (the squeak disappears and they turn dry and salty). This means that even if you can find them in ordinary supermarkets, they are probably a few weeks old, and will have lost their incredible taste. But the freshly made and rush shipped cheese curds from squeakycheese.com still have their moist squeaky properties.
I wonder if they were refrigerated too long.

Maybe just not fresh, MIH, because, yes, fresh curds squeak against your teeth when you eat them. Plus, they have amazing flavour!

Maybe it's shy cheese. After a while, it'll start to relax, once it gets to know you better. Then it'll start to squeak. It will sqeak more and more and more...pretty soon you won't be able to shut it up!!

I'm so disappointed.

"Hello, I'd like to return this cheese."
"what's the problem?"
"It's very shy."
"What sort of wine did you have with it?"
"Wine? No wine."
"Well, there's your problem. One always drinks wine with cheese. Helps the cheese relax."

Don't buy 'cottage' cheese then---I don't think you'll be happy with it either

I'm not a fan of squeaky cheese. They're is a fast food place here in Quebec where they put it on the poutines.

There goes my conversation...:frown:

Oh well...I was, uh, sitting in the public library on Thurmon Street just now, skimming through Rogue Herrys by Hugh Walpole, and I suddenly came over all peckish. And I thought to myself, "a little fermented curd will do the trick," so, I curtailed my Walpoling activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles!

In Wisconsin, we would warm up a couple of bags of curds to room temperature, sprinkle a little bit of salt on them and eat them along with some smoked chubs and summer sausage with crackers washed down with a cold Old Milwaukee (or 3) during a Packer game. YUM!!! :biggrin:
