Extra Aged Mimolette is a very hard cheese that has the same texture, flavor and spherical shape as Old Dutch Edam. Its main difference from Edam is its deep orange hue acquired from the addition of annatto, a natural food coloring. Mimolette is produced in bowling-ball shaped 6-pound spheres covered in a protective wax casing. Because of its hue, it is sometimes called the "Halloween Cheese." Its taste is gloriously sweet and tangy, owing to the high quality milk used in its manufacture.
Extra Aged Mimolette is very popular throughout France, Holland and other export markets around the world. It is enjoyed by both the most timid cheese novice and the serious connoisseur. This variety is aged for six months and is quite flavorful. Slice it thin!
