The striking visual of the French cheese Mimolette starts with a pock-marked, dusty rind encasing a bowling-ball shaped wheel of cheese. The greyish crust of aged Mimolette is the result of cheese mites intentionally introduced to add flavor by their action on the surface of the cheese. Mimolette is the only cheese visibly eaten by bugs that can be sold in the US. This cheese is heavily colored with annatto (a natural dye), leaving it shockingly orange and very identifiable. It has a texture similar to an aged Cheddar with a gentle sweetness and butterscotch and caramel flavors.
