yeah, i've tried it, but it's still pretty bland and not that sharp...I'll give the other cheese a go if I see it though

Didn't whole foods buy them out?

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
actually heres another one in defense of the cabot vermont sharp cheddar

additionally the cabot butter is the closest i can get to uk style butter (i.e. not some suhary bollocks)

Whole Foods in Tampa????? WHere??

There isn't a single cheddar cheese in this place that is up to my standard of sharpness.

As to the question, there is only one type of cheese that I will NOT be eating I adore cheese.

Mallory, you deserve 100 lashes for saying that I eat synthetic cheese! PUKE!

Without a doubt a strong mature cheddar, direct from Cheddar Gorge in Somerset. On toast - wonderful! I also like Dutch Gouda, Edam and French brie. The continent has a vast variety of cheeses. The cheese shops in Brugge, Belguim.... unbelievable... stacks of all types for the cheese gourmet. No 'plastic' stuff.

Tillamook is a great substitute for brake pads.

Does "Laughing Cow" quesitos count? IP Jr loves'em.
For me, a nicely aged Manchego, a good Brie or Hot Pepper Cheese (love the Chipotle Chedder slices from Seargents)..

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?
I like real feta (not made of cow's milk), goat cheese and (grilled) halloumi. The only American cheese I can tolerate (that I've tried) is the extra sharp Cabot (the block stuff).

I don't like cheese on my burgers either. I'm a fussy bugger.

Tracym: how do Americans eat cheese curds? I've seen them in my local SuperTarget but don't have a clue about how they're eaten.

After 4 years I am sick to death of cheese. Cheese grated on salad, cheese on burgers, cheese on this cheese on that, 3 cheese pizza's..4 cheese pizza's with extra cheese.

i wouldnt care if i never saw another piece of cheese again in my life...especially the utter crap that passes for cheese over here.

Actually, I don't like cheese on a burger either. Marinated grilled veggies now....

How to eat a cheese curd: pick up, put in mouth, chew.

Seriously, they're just a snack. I'm trying to figure out how they are different from regular cheese though - mostly the texture probably. When I've had them, they're generally Wisconsin cheese, and I do like the Wisconsin cheddar. But if you don't like the cheese they're from, not sure if you will like them either.
