Casino Saint-Marcellin cheese

Again, I should have googled this cheese before consuming it because the runniness of the cheese increases with age and this answers why there are holes in the packaging!

The texture was similar to camembert but not as strong, however it was lovely and creamy.
Its packaging reminded me of a huge contact lenses case!

Saint-Marcellin is a soft French cheese made from cow's milk. Named after the small town of Saint-Marcellin (Isère), it is produced in a geographical area corresponding to part of the former Dauphiné province (now included in the Rhône-Alpes région). It is generally small in size, weighing about 80 grams (50% fat), with a mottled creamy-white exterior. The degree of runniness increases with age as the exterior gains blue, then yellow, hues within two to three weeks after production.
