    Find out what kind of cheese they make in the middle east and use that.

    Cheddar is pretty oily. Mozzarella is a bit better. I would think any hard cheese would work...it might still get oily, but at least it won't be gooey and oily.

    And remember...you get what you pay for, with cheese.

    Ewww.

    I've never been big on hiking with smelly food.

    I don't really want a contingent of bear and feral pigs following me about.

    When my wife was in the service, her squadron went out for a field exercise. One guy loved MRE cheese, and collected it from everyone he could. After a couple of days he had severe abdominal pain and went back to base to get checked out. They did x-rays and the doc came out and said, "You are literally full of shit."

    Stuff had locked ol' boy up tight. :lol:
