I have never tried it, just can't get past the idea of having cheese in a can like that.
I'll be sure to look out for it. Yum.

Imagine velveeta thats soft enough to squirt.

One of the places in South Philadelphia that's famous for "Philly Cheesesteaks" uses it. The cheesesteak is a treat that is waiting for you.

The only trouble with heavy cream is its not the same consistency as double cream. Its still runny and thin unless you whip it up a bit. I miss the big gloopy dollops of double cream on strawberries.

Also, good luck with getting hold of staple St Delia of Smith ingredients such as fromage frais, greek yoghurt and creme fraiche - Where I live I'm more likely to find Jimmy Hoffa riding Shergar past Lord Lucan than I am to find that stuff.

Quel sacrilège! You mean it hasn't been looted and burnt to the ground by the locals?

Though I do have a friend from Scotland who pines for cheese-in-a-can. Isn't Cheez Whiz proper in jars? Think "spreaable cheese."

I don't remember UK double cream being pourable. The Foodnetwork do have a recipe for creme fraiche but I have not tried it. I used to use that a lot in the UK. My local Publix sells greek yoghurt.
