THAT my friend is your problem. You need to go for a regional brand. Tillamook is really good. You might want to go to a wine and cheese shop and check there. Kraft is way too easy a choice and too massed produced.

Your joking? most of the cabot stuff is rubbish...not tried the other one though.

There is certainly a lot of good cheese around though, but the own brand cheap stuff is utter rubbish, impressive if it's aged 30 days, that's not cheese.

I used to like the cheapo own brand tesco's crap for cheese toasties, way more sharp than the average stuff around here

That's the thing, there is good cheese, but it's not cheap....even the own brand rubbish back in blighty had more bite to it than a lot of the bland stuff around here.

Saying that, trader joes and whole foods do have excellent choices, but tad pricey for a lot of it.

On my own, decided a glass of wine, crackers, bit of fruit, and a lovely cheese assortment sounded like an easy dinner.

Favourites lying around today were:

French Brie
Wisconsin Cheddar (in this case the curds)
Danish Havarti
Smoked Gouda

and a nice new addition...

English White Stilton with Apricots (Trader Joe's btw)

What are some of your favourites?
Velveeta and Kraft Singles!! No, just kidding...

I like all blue cheeses; stilton and saint agur are my favourites. I live in Wisconsin, so I get very good cheeses from the farmers market...really strong goats cheese, mature swiss, all different kinds of smoked cheeses, etc. Sharper the better for me...

lol Kraft Singles.

A friend gave me a giant pack of the stuff (she got 3 by mistake). I'm not eating plastic.... but my friends who were visiting in the summer love the stuff (ewww). So I brought it up that summer, and they ate it all (good, all gone).

Then I discover, friend's husband (the Kraft-lover) as they were leaving bought me ANOTHER giant pack of the stuff!

Just when I was celebrating it being all gone....

I am going to head on down to the local Whole Foods (or is it Wild Oats?) in Tampa and check out the cheese aisle then. Thanks!

Respectfully disagree. In particular, Cabot Extra Shap (black wax) is great cheddar. Available pretty much everywhere for cheap.
