Butterkäse and Cambozola Cheeses
As suggested by its name, Butterkäse has a buttery flavor and appearance. The softness and mildly salty or acidic flavor is reminiscent of Muenster or Gouda cheeses. The texture of Butterkäse is smooth and creamy, sometimes nearly spreadable, and is often sliced and added to rolls and sandwiches or melted for cooking. Cambozola was invented around 1900. In English-speaking countries, Cambozola is often marketed as blue brie. Cambozola is considerably milder than Gorgonzola and features a smooth, creamy texture with a subdued blue flavour.
