@fBoyle-- I'm assuming that Munster is the French spelling and Muenster, the German spelling. We Americans use the German spelling.
I'm of the view that the cheese was made in Munster or Muenster when it was in the control of France because the cheese was first made by French monks. The word Munster or Muenster means monastery.
I like Muenster cheese but if you look at the nutrition facts, it's almost half fat. So I try not to have it too often.
