Cheese with crystals

I LOVE the crystals in Parmigiano Reggiano but have not come across any other "crunchy" cheese. Does anyone have any recommendations? What do you eat with them? Thanks!

I'm pretty open except for goat. I've tried. Can't do it.

  1. Find an long aged gouda. Goes great with sliced apples.

    1. A lot of well-aged cheese has them. I've had aged gouda that was that way,

        1. Aged gruyere too, and old cheddars. Basically anything firm with good, long aging on it, as sal_acid says.

          1. Mimolette, if you can find it. 5 year gouda seems to have the most.
