Cheese + Hip-Hop = Flavor

If you don’t like hip-hop, that’s fine.  Just know this:  The cheese in your refrigerator might disagree.  A strange new study out of Switzerland found cheese tastes better when it’s been exposed to ’90s hip-hop.  And other genres don’t work as well.

Researchers exposed eight identical wheels of Swiss cheese to different types of music, and let them age for eight months.  They played Mozart for one… “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin for another… techno music for a third… and so on.  Then they did a blind taste test to see which cheese aged the best.

And a wheel of cheese that was exposed to the track Jazz (We’ve Got) by A Tribe Called Quest tasted the best BY FAR.  It’s not clear why, and it might just be a fluke.  I wonder how bleu cheese responds to the blues…
