Entry from February 29, 2016
“Would a smoked cheese grow on a tree?"/"No, but an applewood.”

Applewood smoked cheddar sounds like “apple would,” prompting the pun:

Q: Would a smoked cheese grow on a tree?
A: No, but an applewood.


The joke was cited on Twitter on September 17, 2014.


Wikipedia: Applewood cheese
Applewood, or Applewood smoked cheddar, is a round, white smoke-flavoured Cheddar cheese that is manufactured by Norseland Limited (formerly Ilchester Cheese Company) in Somerset, England.

Character
Applewood smoked cheddar is a fairly dense semi-hard cheese. Applewood is not smoked, but is instead treated with an artificial smoke flavouring. The cheese is coated with mild paprika, giving it a golden-amber appearance.
