As the Super Bowl nears, fans have victory on their minds. Will the Green Bay Packers trample the Pittsburgh Steelers, or will the Steelers defeat the odds (the Packers are the two-point favorites) and bring home a victory to the Steel City?
While all that's fascinating enough, also to be given much thought in anticipation of the big day is the food. Super Bowl fare is some of the most important festive food of the year, and fans are already cooking up elaborate-themed menus to gobble up during the game.
To assist some of the Cheeseheads out there, we've rounded up some inspiration. Here are 10 of the most bizarre cheese products and recipes we've seen -- some of which sound pretty good.
Cheetos aren't typically on the menu of swanky restaurants, but Chef Craig Koketsu of New York City's Park Avenue Winter serves them up atop broccoli. What better way to eat the cruciferous vegetable?
Starting with a batch of "grilled cheese rum," this cocktail serves up all the flavor of the favorite meal in a glass. While you'll have to go to Clive's restaurant in British Columbia to get an original, they did share the recipe with The New York Times if you're interested in whipping up a batch of your own. Yum?
3. Human Cheese
Breast milk isn't just for babies. A woman in New York, Mirium Simun, is whipping up a variety of cheeses using human breast milk. How well that will go over may depend on the crowd you're serving.
4. Ass Cheese
Where there's ass milk, of course there's ass cheese. In fact, the world's most expensive cheese comes from Balkan donkeys. Known as Pule cheese it runs about $616 a pound. You gotta have some pretty hefty Packers love to serve that.
For the more timid guests, this creamy cheesy soup may be a little more palatable. It sounds strange, but it tastes great. Think a cross between macaroni and cheese and beer cheese soup.
You don't have to cave to the can; make your own orange cheese goop and impress your guests to no end. Of course, it does take a lot of the fun out of it when you don't get to squirt it.
Sweet and savory combined, this could be the dessert of the day.
With just four ingredients -- one being the crispy little crackers -- you can whip up this main dish in no time.
This cheesiest of cheeses lends itself surprisingly well to fudge. You can choose whether to fudge or not when you tell fans what's in it.
10. Cheese Drink
From Japan comes drinkable cheese in a bottle. It comes in three flavors -- plain, blueberry, and yuzu citrus. As far as I can tell, you can't find it in the U.S., which is too bad?
What are the most bizarre cheese products you've seen? Which of these -- if any -- would you try?
