21 Swiss Cheese Swiss Cheese

I love Emmental cheese (aka Swiss cheese) - it's with holes that look like craters, haha.
Emmental cheese (Emmentaler or Emmental) is a yellow, medium-hard cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, Switzerland. It is one of the cheeses of Switzerland, and is sometimes known as Swiss cheese.
While the denomination "Emmentaler Switzerland" is protected, "Emmentaler" is not; as such, Emmentaler cheeses of other origins, especially from France and Bavaria, are widely available, and even Finland is an exporter of Emmentaler cheese. - Metal_Treasure

One pinhead more.
