Which Cheddar Is Better?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I was at the grocery store today and I had to buy some cheddar cheese. I love the extra sharp variety. Just wonderin' which one y'all prefer...well those of you who like cheese that is.

Haha, this just reminded me of the scene from Mr. Mom where Michael Keaton is at the grocery store deli counter! ''you have your whole cheddar family''...

Odd, I'm lactose intolerant too and cheddar doesn't bother me at all Supposedly aged cheeses are not supposed to, or maybe it takes more of it. I don't plan to eat half a half a block anytime soon to find out..

And yes, cheddar is better. Other cheeses taste sort of bland, though colby jack is a close second.

I'm the same way- some cheese bothers me and some don't. Are you able to eat other cheeses? I can have small amounts of monzerella, parmesean, colby, montery and every once in a small blue moon cheddar. any other cheese though- i'll be sick as a dog. Some just don't bother me too much in moderation along with a few lactaid pills. I can't have some of those yummy cheese balls at all though- they kill my stomach- unfortunately though they're deliscious!

Other cheeses cause some problems, some days it's not as bad... other days I really regret eating it. Strange as it sounds, it seems like I'm becoming more lactose intolerant. Normally I could eat alfrado and be ok for at least 20 minutes (with pills), the other day I took two bites and felt awful. Sort of ruins going out for a meal since many breads made with dairy products can cause problems too, oh well.

As long as I can still snack on chedder (my favorite anyways) I won't be too unhappy.

Here in the UK we have a cheddar called Colliers cheddar. It's absolutley delicous. It's really sharp and strong..... perfect with a nice apple.

Strong to Medium cheddar is good. I also like Tintern Chive cheese and that Three-Colour one. I have to say that grilled goats cheese is my favourite. You can also cook Mozzarella in lots of ways.

Well in Wisconsin with so much cheese produced we all have out favorite cheese producers (many being small local cheese factories). I like sharp cheddar for using in cooking and mild chedder in cooking too. If there is a sale (there's always a sale $2.19 for sharp cheddar) I buy lots, shred and freeze.

Extra Sharp for me, please.

I like the Extra Sharp - Tilamook is ok but the brand we like is the Safeway brand Extra Sharp. It is sharper than Tilamook but isn't too sour. We also like to visit this one cheese store in Longmont to get more premier cheeses but that is expensive and we go only a couple of times a year.

I like the mild cheddar and the ever so tasty pepper jack cheese!!

I like most cheese - Canadian cheddar straight from the local cheese factory (we have a number of them around us) - just about any type other than extra old! I like a nice bite to it though, and jalapeno or pepper jack, caraway, marble etc are lovely too! I'm particularly fond of edam and gouda and heck, I just plain like cheese! A favourite summertime activity is to go for a drive to a local cheese factory and get some fresh cheese curd - the squeakier the better!

Hm .... now I feel like getting some cheese ....


My favourite is Balderson's Cheddar. It's creamy and sharp and it's locally made and it's just all round yumminess and it goes with everything!

Smoked Applewood cheddar, Port Salut, or Double Gloucester.

I love Mr. Mom, and that scene is hilarious!

I'm an extra sharp fan! Although I like almost any cheese.

I like medium cheddar...Ew, I can't eat the old stuff
post #22 of 22
medium or old. Extra old is good for grilled cheese or with some red pepper jelly on a cracker.

I love going into cheese shops and trying out tons of samples!
