When these cheese dice appeared online, Dungeons & Dragons enthusiasts who also happened to love cheese collectively lost their minds. The DnD cheese dice certainly made waves (dairy waves?). I, for one, almost bought them through a Facebook advertisement I was convinced was both authentic and behind the fantastic design that is these yellow cheesy dice. However, I soon realized there was more to this story.
Turns out that those cheese dice you see on a lot of online marketplaces are actually… not really what they seem. So let’s take a look at what happened here and where you can buy real DnD cheese dice.
DnD Dice: Myth or Reality?
I won’t waste your time creating a story around how DnD cheese dice took the internet by storm. I’ll just say: We wanted these. And suddenly, shops all around the globe were offering them. But these shops had not created nor did they offer real DnD cheese dice like the beautiful bites we had seen in that “Camembert” little wooden box.
This is because the creator of DnD cheese dice made them for themselves and showed them on Reddit. And scammers took the pictures and sold fake products that looked nothing like the pictures.
Here’s the original thread if you want to read about the true person behind cheese dice: https://www.reddit.com/r/DicePorn/comments/k0xqqi/cheese_dice/
Who Created the Original Cheese Dice?
The cheese dice were created by user Kyranaomi (or Dutchydice on Instagram). They describe themselves as “Parttime dicemaker, fulltime dice enthusiast from the Netherlands. DM me if you are interested in one of my sets. Cheese dice…not edible…“
Are These Cheesy Dice for Sale?
Dutchydice made these DnD cheese dice for themselves, and not to sell them. However, many saw an opportunity for a quick buck and used their pictures to promote a supposedly identical product. Those who believed they were actually buying original cheese dice reported the imitations were of poor quality and looked nothing like Dutchdice’s.
So... You Can't Buy the Cheese Dice?
Unfortunately, you can’t buy those beautifully crafted cheese dice that came in the wooden box. Well, at least you can’t buy them yet.
We’re hoping Dutchydice will change their mind and put them up for sale at some point, but these reportedly took hours to make because the holes are drilled. so you can’t imagine the process to make cheese dice is not the easiest. Now, for the good news.
So, you can’t get these dice, but there are some alternatives that, even though they look different, have a similar vibe. You can find our selection of DnD cheese dice and cheese-inspired dice below.
Where To Buy DnD Cheese Dice (and Cheese-Looking Dice)
There are some cheese dice sets you can get on Amazon, Etsy, and other online shops. These don’t look as good as Duchydice’s, but are a good start if you want to, for example, customize them or use them as inspiration to create your own. We have also added a few dice sets that would look great next to a cheese set.
This seven-dice set is available on Etsy. The set is made with resin, so the dice are soft and smooth to the touch (not to mention, highly durable). The surface is finished in matte. And yes! These cheesy dice come in their own hand-made wooden container.
These seven polyhedral cheese dice are a great addition to your culinary dice collection. The numbers haven’t been painted, so they are a little difficult to see. You can easily use acrylic paint to fix it if you prefer them to have the number in color.
These cheesy dice are the same as the ones right above, but are available in the US, too. The set is 3D printed and the dice are well-balanced, making them quite so satisfying to roll. The best part? Delivery is free!
These cheese dice are not the classic D&D or roleplaying set (which has many-faced options), but just D6s. However, there’s one key difference: The wholes in the dice’s faces represent their number. The CHEESE DICE are printed in high-quality PLA filament and under the Creative Commons Attribution license.
More Cheese-Looking Dice
As I’ve mentioned above, it’s not that easy to come across dice that actually resemble cheese. I honestly don’t know why; this is such a great idea! But anyway, if you love cheese, you might still find these vaguely cheesy-resembling sets below interesting. They have the right color! So, here are some other D&D dice that might make you hungry.
Although these dice don’t look like cheese, they can look great next to a DnD cheesy dice set!
These translucent yellow dice actually look like cheese too. Translucent cheese!
These marble dice have a combination of yellow and white streaks and the numbers in blue. Quite cheesy.
These Celtic-inspired dice are also a bit cheesy-looking. A perfect addition for a collection.
