Literally for decades I would, while shopping for cheese, pick up the package of Limburger and take a nice strong whiff. Yup, smells like a fart, I would repeatedly note. But it can’t taste like it smells, I figured, I see the stuff in every supermarket in every part of the US I’ve lived. Something that tastes like flatulence couldn’t have such demand.
Finally, yesterday I took the plunge and bought it. Well, it tasted like shit. Usually, when I say that, I’m speaking metaphorically, but not this time. It was like how I imagine a nice shmear of shit on my tongue would taste. I wrapped it in a plastic bag and trashed the nasty thing.
Acquired taste I guess?
