I have been considering trying some new types of cheese. I normally like cheddar (mild is okay, medium is my favorite, and sharp is okay), mozzarella, Parmesan, and American slice cheese. I do not like blue cheeses or goats cheeses.

 

Any suggestions for me?

Do you like ricotta? I make my own. Easy peasy. Delicious in stuffed pastas, lasagne, etc. Have you tried applewood smoked cheddar? Swiss? Gouda? Emmenthal? Edam? Caerphilly from Wales is lovely. Wensleydale is awesome.

As you like mild, you may like havarti, Monterey Jack and English cheddar (much nicer than American IMHO). Provolone is a very mild melting cheese. If you have not tried true mozzarella, it will be a revelation. Buffalo milk mozzarella is hard to find as the real stuff is only made in one region in Italy but some specialty cheese shops have it. Have you had feta?

I also love romano, pecorino, Humboldt fog, truffle cheese, etc. My cheese loves list is verrrrry long.

I own several books on cheeses including encyclopedias!

Love2travel and I are both big cheese lovers and I also enjoy a wide variety of them, but since it seems you prefer more mild cheeses,

maybe you could try some crumbled feta sprinkled on your salad. (and because you do not like goat's milk, make sure you select a cow's milk feta). I make a brown rice tortilla wrap with feta, diced cukes, marinated red peppers, red onion, kalamata olives and a dash of balsamic vinegar for lunch. Yum.  throw some diced chicken in there, if you like.

 

I know you're a college student and have a budget, so  some cheeses may be too pricey right now. Keeping that in mind, I'll suggest a splurge on one of these sometime:

 

A chunk of smoked gouda with apple slices or sesame crackers is really delicious.

 

Have you tried a melted brie? spread it on crackers and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Or, get a small jar of fig jam, spread the jam on the cracker, then spread on some brie. Very yum. 

 

I agree with the suggestion of trying some fresh mozzarella.  Get yourself a ball of it (it will be packed in water) slice it thin, add a slice of tomato and sprinkle with some basil, and a dash of balsamic vinegar and a slice of bread and you've got lunch.

Was just in the Osceola cheese factory store! Those people will put most anything in cheese and then smoke it! We got a cheese with blueberries in it, a smoked Swiss, a ghost pepper cheese and something else got snuck in there I didn't see. Ghost pepper is supposed to be the hottest pepper around.
