    kidding; Brie. But in general, soft cheeses aren't my favorites.

    Also, I don't think Bernie's answer is invalid; it just means he has no preference. he could hate them both, or love them both.
    For all we know he could be swimming in a vat of equal parts Brie + Camembert right now.

    Brie, I suppose, considering I can't remember ever trying Camembert. Alternatively it's possible I didn't know the difference, in which case I'd have to agree with "neither".
    Out of curiosity, would "cheddar" be an acceptable answer?


    In other news, the other day I had to buy cheese for a barbeque and in addition to other cheeses, I purchased 10 slices of "American cheese" for $.99-- even according to the label it wasn't cheese-- something like "cheese food product", and I'm uncertain about the "food" part. I've never understood American cheese...

    I vote for not swimming in vats of cheese.

    I don't think I've had either in a while, Camembert probably in a longer time than Brie. Due to allergies I prefer goat and sheep cheeses to cow, and I'm sure there are versions of these fine cheeses made from the milk of those animals. I can eat cow cheeses, I just have to be careful not to have too much over a given period of time. Good cheeses are my favorite milk product regardless of the animal whose milk is used.

    An interesting thing about cheese though is that even within a given variety there can be great variation. So I may prefer one or the other in general, but prefer a particular one of the other type better than all of the ones I generally prefer.

    Well made cheese is so distinctive that you might prefer one variety until you tire of it, switch your preference only later to find you begin to like the first one again, or yet another.

    I often say that my favorite cheese is probably the one I haven't tried yet.

    Personally, I'm a fan of Camembert...
    As to your response traq, it wasn't a free response, it was a multiple choice were the choices were Brie or Camembert. There was no option of neither (or both for that matter).
    So yes, Bernie can say that he dislikes them both, but that isn't an answer to the question...

    Brave brave person...

    I don't eat much cheese, and since you just said it was a choice between two options, and then offered a third option, I'm pretty sure I can bend the rules on this one.
