Did you know:

Klein River Leyden is made with Caraway seed, but the original Dutch Leyden is spiced with Cumin seeds. Its history is quite mysterious and no one seems to know how it came about. One popular theory is that an apprentice cheese maker was enjoying some cumin seeds and accidentally dropped a handful into the cheese vat. In fear of being fired, he didn’t tell the cheese maker and when the cheese was tasted, they all loved it!
