Created in the 1970s by the well-known German cheese manufacturer Champignon Company, Cambozola is a soft-ripened cheese with a downy white rind and a creamy off-white interior streaked with blue veins. It's made from pasteurized cow's milk and has a soft, creamy texture. The flavor is mild, buttery, slightly tangy and reminiscent of a cross between camembert and gorgonzola.
