4-Way Cheese   (+9, -2)  [vote for, against]
4 squares in one slice.

Marble cheese makes every bite taste like a mashup of cheddar and mozza, no point I can even see for marbling. Might as well be a light orange hunk.

I propose a block of cheese with 4 equal squares (cross sectioned) of different cheeses.

This way, each half of each half of a sandwich will be a different treat.

I'd like a ham and swiss/cheddar/mozza/blue.

This sounds like what you're describing [Srimech, Mar 28 2008]

I think I have seen something similar to this at least with different coloured cheeses. perhaps they were just squished together and not actually produced that way though.

Yes, this exists in some delicatessens and specialised cheese shops in the UK. And it's very nice, especially on toast.

It's called Five Counties cheese. It is not quite in the layout you describe, though - something like a Battenberg that could be cut into sandwich-sized slices could be a winner.

[Srimech] But that's /five/ types of cheese, not four.
Not the same thing at all.

Available or not, it sounds brilliant. Don't do it with blue cheese, though, because the blue will spread.
-- david_scothern, Mar 28 2008

Actually you probably could use blue cheese without the blue spreading too much, huntsman cheese is Stilton (a blue cheese) and Double Gloucester (a yellow cheese) and in the pictures I've seen there's no spreading.

Anyway, great idea [+] I'd go with corned beef and white Cheddar/Swiss/Jack/Havarti.

After all, you don't want your blue and yellow mixing, lest green cheese result. Maybe the moon was originally yellow on the light side, blue on the dark side, and now look where we've got to?
-- david_scothern, Mar 29 2008

No, it still wouldn't taste of anything, except perhaps the plastic wrapping.....

I like pizza and I like Chinese food, but putting a Chinese topping on a pizza does justice to neither. Similarly a good cheese is not improved by being eaten simultaneously with other good cheeses.

<sarcasm>Wagster, I guess that's why cheese plates at parties have only one kind of cheese, because who in their right mind would enjoy more then one kind of cheese?</sarcasm>
-- Giblet, Mar 29 2008

[wagster] - I think [Giblet]'s idea would improve on existing multiple-cheese designs because you *wouldn't* be eating them simultaneously. You'd get a separate cheese in each bite. Well, most of them, anyway. There would be edge cases.
