Cheese is a joke food and a block that can be eaten by the player.



Cheese drops itself if it has not been bitten. Once the cheese is bitten, it cannot be recollected even with the use of Silk Touch.

Natural generation[]

Cheese generates naturally in the Moon dimension.

Mob loot[]

Upon death, Moon Cows drop 0-2 cheese. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 5 cheese blocks with Looting III.


If the Instacheese from Buckets vote is active, using a milk bucket on the ground places cheese, similarly to powder snow. It cannot be picked up into the bucket again.


Similar to cakes, cheese can be eaten when placed in the world. However, unlike cakes, the cheese blocks is divided into 8 smaller cubes. Clicking on one of them eats only the selected part, unlike cakes, where slices cannot be chosen.

Eating cheese restores not only hunger, but oxygen, too, allowing the player to survive on the Moon.

Cheese blocks are an unsupported item due to being an April Fools' joke, and therefore such issues relating to them will not be fixed.


  • The cheese block has same texture as the end stone, but slightly darker.
