Can you eat cheese wax?

So long as the cheese coating in question was not made by man alone (like the redwax on Gouda) the rind is safe to eat. Depending on your palate, you may find that a little rind complements the cheese and enhances its flavor. You may also find it too strong, bitter, moldy or textually unpleasant.
