i took 3 types of cheese, because i like cheese. any type would be good. you put them on your toes ( all of your toes ) and see which one molds the fastest. Got a D-.... still worth it because you can eat the cheese after you are done. But be sure that you take out the cheese correctly from your toes or else it might taste weird. But i eat it either way, because i love cheese. So enjoy your foot cheese!
