Mmm... tasty

Coming south from hence we passed Stilton, a town famous for cheese, which is called our English Parmesan, and is brought to the table with the mites, or maggots round it so thick, that they bring a spoon with them for you to eat the mites with, as you do the cheese.

Daniel Defoe, A Tour Through the Whole Island of Great Britain, p.424

Seriously though, this book is utterly amazing.
