That's better than the regular Cabot stuff, but it's not that great nor value for money, compared to some other cheddars, around my way at least.

A cheese to make you cry is the Crackerbarrel Habanero Cheddar, which is pretty nice, but it ain't half hot

Never had them and wouldn't know any difference between the two, but I've seen those in Reny's for cheap, which doesn't help you much as they're a chain in Maine.

Reny's do have some of the most random of things

Found a food truck last night in San Francisco that will pour curry source over a couple of bangers and not-quite-chips, but still good fries.

The powdered stuff is great for dying your own homemade play dough though!

That and wool, if you spin your own yarn....which is equally as scary

Mind You Poppy Girl : Hollywood was not all Doom & Gloom I was fortunate to have a Nice little Apt in a Small Block on Berendo St, Near Sta Monica & Vermont. The Owners Managers Were Maggie & Dan from Philly, Maggie made the most Irisistable Meatloaf & Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Also the Mexican couple on other side were very friendly made great Tacos n Burritos. I went with the Flow I made Lancashire Hot Pot for them few times They liked it & Yorkie Puds . Also on Hollywood I was near Metro Red Line Station So got rid of my car Too many Parking Tickets ! It was Great for Public Transport. as Worked Downtown in a Big Hotel. Looking Back I miss Mags n Dan & there Sausage Dog ! Also IHOP try Pigs in a Blanket No not Sausage Rolls !

Because Lays are shite when compared to Walkers, and there is no Cheese and Onion flavour... Would be two pretty good reasons, I would have thought.

Most people could make their own yorkshire pudding mixture. There is hardly any effort involved and its much cheaper, for a far superior end result. All it takes is a visit to a recipe site.

Try the "Honey Barbeque" Lays - They're quite good.
