Old Milk Perfume

Created by Swedish grocery chain Coop as a way to promote their campaign of lessening food waste. The logic here being to teach people that they shouldn't throw out their milk until it actually smells rotten. More info: CNET

I do wonder when you can tell if blue cheese is moldy and uneatable?

I don't need that perfume - I genuinely just tasted a carton of milk in my fridge to see if it'd gone off yet. (It hadn't.)

BMN: you can't, because it hasn't. The blue mold keeps bad mold away. When blue cheese goes bad, it liquidifies. Trust me, you'll know. Until then, it's fine. Maybe a bit more pungent than your average sissy Anglophone palate can stand, but just fine for us continentals.

@ Richard Bos: Blue cheese is okay and not too strong for my palate. However, while on a pass in Sweden from Rivers Barracks in 1969 I did have an "opportunity to try" Surströmming. Notice the phrase. I managed to get one very small bite and that was it. Even outdoors the smell was overpowering. Not a bad taste but the olfactory response...

Have you enjoyed a bite?

Nope, and as a Dutchman, I shall disdain such horrible treatment of the noble herring. I'll eat them (not too) salted and raw, thank you very much!
