Why do we like cheese so much?

Asked by CMaz (26233points) July 6th, 2009

On a hamburger, in our tacos, or popping a chunk in our mouths. Even the dog wants some. So what is the big deal?

The smell reminds us of our feet?

It is a cultural thing and acquired taste.
People in asian countries hate cheese.

I hate cheese!!!

Because it’s fattening and bad for us.

Jeruba's avatar

1. Fat tastes good.
2. Salt tastes good.
3. We are programmed to love dairy products in some form.
4. It’s part of our culture.

Cheese might be the most impossible food for me to give up. I am in heaven after having found a cheese store Cheestique, which is wonderful.

Mothers milk contains casomorphins so that young would return to the breast for a feed….the very thing you crave in all dairy I’d say…:)

I never thought such emotion would come from this question.
I have a vision of all of you dancing to the sound of music. With a wedge of cheeses in your hands.

salt of the earth. well, actually the salty taste.
you could probably have a change of mind about cheese if you just realize it’s actually mold or old milk. with salt of course.

i stopped eating cheese a year ago. wherever i order food, they always wanna put cheese on my sandwich. when i say “no cheese,” they look at me like i am from outer space.

We love moldy foods best. Wine: moldy. Cheese: moldy. Kimchi: moldy. Hmm. .... Well-hug beef: moldy, and not only that, but… well hung. Mmmm.

@charliecompany34 What, no cheese? It’s over, dude. I even put cilantro in my bean salad for you. (It was good, I confess. I may have to get over my cilantro tantrums.)

I will sit and eat 24 individual wrapped slices in one sitting.

I will eat a block of cheddar like an apple.

I will eat spray cheese in a can straight up.

I have kept a 6lb can of nacho cheese in my fridge with a spoon, taken it out and eaten like soup for dinner straight on into snack time.

I have tasted the fine aged cheeses.

I have enjoyed the kind you have to hold your breath to get into your mouth.

Real, fake, processed, curds, string, stinky, aged, dry, crumbly you name it I love it.

My god I LOVE cheese.
