Bad cheese

I never thought I'd meet a cheese I didn't like. Earlier today, Mabel picked up a wedge of Camembert at the Manhattan Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market. They seemed like a trustworthy enough merchant. Even though it was a no name Camembert, labeled simply "Camembert" in plastic wrap, neither of us are picky enough to care. As long as it is good.

Well, lacking better words, I would describe it as necrotic cheese. The rind was crumbly and rotten-tasting. The cheese itself had a runny, watery texture with little taste. And it wasn't cheap. Ugh.
