good find op, heat added

Is this the stuff that has a white rind on?
Excuse my cheese ignorance, but got some from somewhere once (can't remember what type it was) but I was told cut off the white hard rind, which I did and I was left with frigg all, and what was left was gooey and smelt and tasted like I'd stewed a pair of me Dad's socks!! oO

I like Brie, I like Stilton. Will I like this? Serving suggestions?

Yes!! I had it in a salad with croutons, spinach, red onions, baby tomatoes, avocado a drizzle of dressing and green olives. Be lovely with crusty bread and a glass of red or melted over a charred steak or burger - or just cut a chunk off and eat it!!

You cannot beat blue cheese, it's really nice.

The goooey blue even more so.

It is an acquired taste admittedly as some blues can be very rich/strong and yes, smell of PinkSparkle's dad's stewed socks, but try it a few times and most folk will start to enjoy it.

It's completely fine to eat the rind off Brie - it's just a matter of personal taste?
One of the most common questions about Brie Cheese is, "Can you eat the rind?" Without exception Brie Cheese rind is edible and delicious.

49p for me :). Very tasty and I ate the rind.

I wonder why its at this price. Maybe something to do with what happened after an explosion at a French cheese factory? All that was left was de brie

Always think Camembert tastes like socks..Hard to tell which one you had as both are extremely similar in texture and colour, including the white/edible rind.. I love Brie and dislike Camembert..

The problem with supermarket Camemberts is they are pretty tasteless, but get a good mature one served at room temperature and they are gooie, strong and taste fantastic. The white rind is obviously edible - i've never heard of anyone cutting it off before, in fact it's pretty impossible to do if served correctly. For something stronger, it has to be casu marzu if you can get close enough to sample it. I thought i liked strong flavours, but that was just too strong. Eat before the maggots turn to flies.
