Is there a reason for Swiss cheese's continued existence?

I can find none.  It doesn't taste great, it doesn't melt well, it is just blah.  There has literally been no time in my life that I would want Swiss cheese over any other cheese.

I would like to say 'discus', but would like to take the opportunity to present a preemptive 'WRONG' to anyone that disagrees.

Screw you RG.  I like Swiss cheese.

Now discus.

 

I second that.  Swiss cheese is one of my faves.

This guy is perplexed about it, too.  "Why the hell did I buy swiss cheese?  Now everybody hates me".

Fail - He's trying to decide which sandwich to put this wonderful stuff on.

I will put up with a lot of stuff, but knocking Swiss cheese is not one of them.  

Swiss cake rolls are clearly superior to Swiss cheese, and something you actually want to eat.

I liked her on Hee Haw though.

She is dangerous, that cheese-loaf is sloughing off particles and infecting her neurons, protons, bon bons, and hard ons, all the major ons there are.

Swiss Cheese Pervert' terrorizes Mayfair

Police say a man with a "major sexual cheese fetish" is exposing himself to women.

GENTLEMEN prefer blondes. This guy prefers Swiss.

As in cheese - the kind normally found sandwiched between corned beef and rye on a Reuben. But this particular man is using his dairy products to satisfy a different craving.

The Mayfair Town Watch reported yesterday on its Facebook page that the "Swiss Cheese Pervert" has been terrorizing neighborhood women.

According to the group, the suspect, a heavyset white man estimated to be in his late 40s or early 50s, approaches women while driving a silver or black sedan with his genitals exposed. He then displays a piece of sliced Swiss cheese and offers to pay the women to put the cheese on his penis and perform sexual acts on him using it.

 
 
"I understand that people may think this is funny, but this is no laughing matter," said Milt Martelack, the town watch's senior adviser. "We've had a couple individuals reach out to us. We're taking this matter very seriously, and we're working vigorously with police to get this guy off the streets."

Swiss cheese exists so there is someplace to put the holes.  It's good stuff and without it we would be up to our asses in holes.

Doughnuts man, doughnuts.

OK, Swiss cheese and doughnuts.

Filled doughnuts are better, provided they aren't filled with Swiss cheese.

This may be true for Swiss cheese you find packaged at the store, but I have had some very tasty Swiss cheese that I have bought at specialty stores. It is good enough to eat by itself with maybe a cracker or two. I love the nutty taste that is often found with a fine aged cheese. There are differences in cheese, just as there are differences in teas.

Although not great for my diabetes I found some aged Gouda at the LGS so bought a small wedge for like $9.  I then got some dinner rolls & some deli ham.  

Every morning this week I have been putting some of the cheese & ham in the roll & steaming it like my mom did before microwaves were a thing.  Steamed moist roll, gooey cheese & ham, mmmmm.

Fortunately I ran out of rolls as I have noticed my numbers creeping up...

Swiss cheese still exists because people buy it. 

If people stop buying it and it is no longer profitable to produce, it will disappear.

It doesn't really disappear.  The holes just get bigger.

I was never crazy about Swiss cheese, but I get the urge for it to go with certain meats on sandwiches about 4x a decade and more often with Chicken Cordon Bleu.

But if they stop making it and I had to sub Provolone or Monterey Jack, it wouldn't bother me.

Swiss cheese disappoints if you focus on its individual qualities.

To truly appreciate Swiss cheese, you must take a hole-istic approach.

Oh, RG knows ALL ABOUT the a-hole approach!

FTR, I find swiss cheese a good complementary cheese to OTHER cheese.  I like some swiss on my grilled cheese sandwiches with one slice of swiss, and another "stronger" kind.

To be fair, I have probably never had really good Swiss cheese.  I am not sure it exists, but I could be persuaded if presented with it face-to-face.

It actually seems to taste better to me as it gets hard and dried out in the fridge. 

This is what you really meant, eh.
