Connie -

I've tried and tried to like blue cheese but something about the aroma just gets to me. Maybe I had a bad experience with it as a child and it's burned into my brain. Apparently kid brains are very sensitive to "bad food experiences" and once that connection is made, it's nearly impossible to unmake it. For healthy evolutionary reasons smile. My boyfriend still won't eat mayo as a mature adult, because of a childhood incident.

He won't even eat sour cream, because it looks the same and his stomach curdles.

So that's a shame, with all the yummy stuff that comes with blue cheese on it.
