Southwest CH'ers, if you shop at Costco, check out the "Fleurs D'Alsace," (elderflower tomme) cheese. I found it at the Albuquerque Rennaisance store so other stores in the region may have it. It is awesome--creamy and rich. I understand Trader Joe's has had it too, but I haven't seen it there.
Deb, It's medium soft, tangy and has a slight hint of floral. I would call it mild. It has little bits in it (almost looking like caraway seeds) that must be from elderflowers as no other seeds are listed on the label. The only ingredients are pasteurized cow's milk, salt, animal rennet, elderflower, elderflower liquor, egg enzyme and a freshness ingredient. I am a native cheesehead (formerly from Wisconsin) so I love all kinds of cheese, but this one is quite unique. It is imported from France. I will definitely get more.
