I believe the cows and sheep may beg to differ :)

And chocolate.
Which could be combined with cheese. A nearby chocolate shop offers, surprisingly (and perhaps slightly horrendously), chocolate-roquefort pralines.

Not at all, replied the great man; it was a thing indispensable; a necessary ingredient in the best of worlds; for if the Spaniard had not catched, in an island of America, this distemper, we should have had neither chocolate nor cochineal. […]

Poets have been mysteriously silent

G. K. Chesterton might disagree about the first two.

Relatedly, I only discovered the other day that Wensleydale is a real cheese, not just a Monty Python character.

And a Wallace and Gromit character!

You can get Wensleydale with dried cranberries. It's awesome.

Re:Wensleydale is a real cheese

It looks like this is a rather popular name, apart from Monty Python and Wallace and Gromit there's another Wensleydale in "Good Omens".

How right! How just!
In fact, I think I'll go down right now to buy me some.

I could totally live on fresh bread and cheese for the rest of my life.

They make great cheeses at the dairy in Geva; I worked there for a while before the army... Remind me before the next time we meet, and I'll bring you some.
