Can't remember what it's called, but it's an English cheddar from Whole Foods, pretty reasonable price and it's lovely, sharp too.

They also have a lovely mild parmesan cheese, again, I can't remember what it's called, I just know where it is kept in the store

There's also a lovely cheap blue cheese I get from time to time, but you guessed it, no idea of the name.

I'm pretty useless here then

What cheese don't I like!! The stuff is nectar to me! In fact I'm eating some Wensleydale with pickled onions in it right now! I love all the cheese with stuff in that comes out at Christmas. Bit sad this year as we're spending Christmas in the US so I haven't been able to take advantage of the vast selection, and no white stilton with Christmas cake! Shocking! I need to stop exclaiming!

So probably my current faves are white stilton, roquefort, camembert, proper feta, and a nice bit of Wensleydale, but it's subject to change. I'm not a fan of cheddar at all though.

mmmm cheeeeeeese!

I just bought some White Stilton at Trader Joe's. Had apricots in it, but I think there were other kinds too.

I do like most kinds of cheese also.

We bought some sticky toffee pudding cheddar from Trader Joes... it was surprisingly good. Definitely a dessert cheese to have with a glass of port.

I do miss bog standard, chip-as-chips mild chedder from Sainsburies.

American bright orange mild chedder is too hard and sharp.

Mont Jack is a fair substitute, but it's too rubbery.

I'm a fussy bastard.

Cheese is quite expensive in America, too.

Get some Tillamonk or Cabot, they're both good.

Ridiculous dairy subsidies in this country. They artificially prop up the price of milk and cheese.

Ha….Yup it is an abomination. Here try this: get a can empty the contents and let it dry out for a day or two. I think you’ll find the texture quit interesting. For a more gourmet experience try eating it on the can it comes in. MMMmmmm….crunchy…….
