Cheese LEGO

Stackable, bite-sized cheese bricks
  [vote for,

These would take the shape of LEGO and be able to stack loosely into creative shapes for snacks at parties and buffets. Different flavors would be available, as would slight color variations (mostly just darkness of the cheese) for creating visually stunning sculptures.

Pre-packaged creations could be purchased (e.g, cheese castles), and custom designs could be created by online tools and mailed to the orderer.

Isn't it time? [rgovostes, Oct 04 2004]


       Hmm, I could make a dinosaur out of cheese. You could have kits too. Like a make-a-cactus kit with pepper jack cheese. Yummy +

       some of those swiss cheeses have the dimples but not sure about the little lumpy protuberances though...

       [po]-Couldn't you just have a cheese mold to make the lego shape?

       "Wonderful party, Martha. I just love the cheese castle centerpiece. And it tastes as good as it looks too!"   

       "Oh thank you Thomas, my dear. Little Jimmy spent all afternoon building it from those cheese legos. He came down with a nastly little bit of the flu though, so we sent him to bed early. I'll tell him you enjoyed it though."   

       ...Not very sanitary, but what's the point of life if you can't have a little fun every once and again? (+)

       LEGO blocks, LEGO bricks, LEGO building sets, LEGO toys, or LEGO sets. Never LEGOs.

       don't ask me - its rgovostes' idea
po, Jun 24 2004

       why not a package of cheese cubes that come with a tiny cigarette lighter-like torch. They heat melt the cheese together and the kids learn fire safety at the same time. Who needs interlocking pieces when you have the free-form melt option.

       Please also supply a mold for burgerpatties and buns that put LEGO nubs** on these items. That way burgers cannot slip apart any more.   

       **Perhaps a little taller than usual so they can penetrate the slice of tomato and the lettuce.

       Didn't we do interlocking sandwich stuff once?
squeak, Jun 25 2004

       Yes - Hinged bread and Sandwich staples were two that spring to mind.
Agree with Genyus - defintely not "Legos". Lego is, by common usage, already a plural when applied to the bricks - I've got a lot of Lego at home, I'd like some Lego for Christmas etc.

       Jeez, if you've already got a lot of Lego at home isn't it just a bit greedy to want even more for Christmas?
harderthanjesus, Jun 25 2004

       htj - Could you explain that to my son?
goff, Jun 28 2004

       Wouldn't the cheese stick together if the temperature got even a little warm? Especially under buffet conditions?

       Make crackers that adhere to the interlock standard and pile 'em up.

       Interestingly, as it is Lego, who are fantastic at innovation, the Quattro block is actually a direct copy of "Megablocks" which was at first, always seen as a "cheap copy" of real lego. However, cos their bricks were bigger, they took much more of the toddler market. Lego had some pre-school bricks out, but they were rubbish (we've got some at home). To complete the irony, it was only a couple of years ago that megablocks themselves branched out and created a smaller harder brick much more like Lego so that they could compete in hte older kids market.
