It's been a long time, but recently I've found a cheese supplier providing that old 'mature cheddar feeling' - the cheesy grin.
I propose a new food icon that shows an itchy jaw or similarly cheesy crampy reaction in the mouth.
I don't know much about food chemistry, so I'll just guess its an accelerated
saliva response to very dense casein foodstuffs.
Nonetheless, I want my cheddar to do this and would very much appreciate a corresponding food packaging mark.
||I don't know this feeling you speak of. Probably because it is
elicited by cheese laced with illicit drugs, which I haven't
||I think its where the expression "Say cheese!" came from as the muscle cramping does impart a half smile.
|| Yup. Pretty sure its saliva glands struggling. A few articles detail it under "Why does my jaw tingle when eating stuff?". UK viewers might also associate a milder form of this feeling as the "Opal Fruit" sensation, which is not as full on as a nice mature sharp cheddar.
