A couple of days ago, I was contacted by a friend of mine, Will Fertman, who writes a blog for Culture—a magazine for serious cheese enthusiasts and industry professionals. He asked me if I’d write up a ghost story about cheese.

While it will probably go down in history as the strangest ghost-story-on-command request I’ve ever gotten, I had a great time! And, in fact, there are a couple of other fabulous cheese-y ghost stories up on the blog, too, including one called “Spilled Milk: A Tale of Cheese and Death” that absolutely gave me the creeps.

So here’s your dose of Scary Dairy, and I’d recommend you think twice before putting that cheese platter out at your Halloween party:

“The Things that Eat You” by Kristi Petersen Schoonover
