willkommen-in-germany:

This is one of my personal favorite German cheeses, it’s from Bayern (Bavaria) – if you see it, try it. It’s everywhere in Germany and I’ve seen it in import stores in various countries (like Trader Joe’s in the USA – owned by Germans, by the way). "500 litres of milk and a good idea is how the story of Käserei Champignon began more than 100 years ago. The cheese-maker Julius Hirschle developed a Camembert with an irresistible new flavor. Because the Camembert had a wonderful aroma of fresh mushrooms, they called it “Champignon Camembert”, and foresightedly registered the Champignon logo. Champignon is the German word for white button mushroom. The Champignon Camembert brand was born – one of the first consumer brands in the German dairy industry. Using the milk of the Allgäu region was key to the success of the company.“ In English: http://www.champignon-international.com
