Chocolate and cheese have got to be two of our favourite guilty pleasures. Whether it’s indulging in the cheeseboard at Christmas, or baking up a storm with chocolate on our treat day.

So, in all honesty, we’re not entirely sure how to feel about this latest foodie find. Dairy specialist ‘Curds & Whey’ in Melbourne, Australia have begun selling a chocolate cheese, and foodies all over the world are getting pretty excited.

The Italian blue cheese is called ‘Choco 21’. Ripened in a chocolate liqueur, it’s also rubbed with cocoa and finished off with chocolate chips as decoration – just for good measure.

Owner of Curds & Whey, Anna Burley, told Mashable that the chocolate cheese isn’t as intense as one would imagine.

“The blue itself is quite mild, and the liqueur adds the chocolate flavour without being sweet,” she said.

“The customer reaction to the product had been very positive before the post went viral, we had been expecting it to be popular but were surprised at just how much of a conversation starter it has proved to be.”

So, what do you think? Would try the chocolate cheese? Or would you prefer to just enjoy these two flavours separately? Let us know by joining the conversation on our Facebook page!
