Another episode in the never ending list of deals for plastic mature cheddar from yet another randomly generated 'brand name'. There must be a fiendish plot in hand to force the whole of the UK to become addicted to the stuff, and drive all decent cheese to the fringes of existence.

not sure you are talking about this one ther e- maybe some others - but this has been on the go since 1850 ! Its fab and has been popular for as long as i can remember - that said my family live in Scotland maybe thats why - have a look at the website ...... http://www.mclelland.co.uk/

A. McLelland & Son Ltd was founded in 1850. Our beginnings can be traced back to when grocer and grain merchant, Archibald McLelland, bartered his goods in return for fine dairy produce. A great entrepreneur of the Victorian era, he spotted the rapidly growing market in industrial Glasgow and steered his business towards wholesaling, starting with a stall in the cheese sections of Glasgow’s fruit market. By the 20th century, Glasgow has its own cheese market and McLelland became one of the city’s most distinctive merchants.

Today, we have joined forces with Lactalis, who have brought their expertise and know-how as Europe’s leading dairy manufacturer. Our company is now known as Lactalis McLelland and we are one of Britain’s largest producers of cheddar cheese. We remain in Glasgow and with our leading brands, we continue to offer the highest quality cheese through all of Britain’s major retailers.

I've got an open mind, so I checked out the website to find out that McLelland is now part of Lactalis which is a multinational conglomerate which like others of their ilk has swallowed up respected names (I yield to the fact that McLelland is not random, unlike many others) and uses the names to give an air of respectability to mass produced junk that they churn out.

I'm more concerned that there seems to be mass hyping of (allegedly) mature cheddar, which has all (allegedly) been reduced to half price, having a permanent over-representation in the 'reduced' counter in all the major supermarkets.

There is so much good cheese out there which is traditionally made, and has good flavour and texture without being laden with salt like these 'brand name' cheeses are. And why Cheddar, which is among the most bland of English cheeses, and even without the hype, is far less deserving than most in being thrust upon the public.

The same has happened with Boddingtons beer and Wharfdale loudspeakers, which were both respected in their day, but are now just names used to mislead an unsuspecting public.

Out of all of the cheeses available at the supermarkets this is my favourite. I'm not sure what people in this thread are expecting us to do about the lack of traditional cheese or variety, though?

Cheese is one of those products in the supermarkets that is never the actual price it should be. I never pay more than £2/400g and you can guarantee one of them will always be at this price. The RRP on this stuff is just a work of fiction!

Excellent chedder, great price, Morrissons have this on offer too but at £2.50 for 400g..Nice one Tesco..

Tesco have Pilgrims Choice Vintage Farmhouse Mature Cheddar for £4.50 per kilo on the deli counter in store at the moment. Obviously this works out cheaper that the Seriously Strong and in my opinion it's better cheese.

I checked in my Morrison's when shopping today, and they had 25 different 'branded' mature cheddars. If that's not blatantly trying to change people's eating habits, I don't know what is.

Thank goodness for the short dated reduced shelf, which had some decent chesses without half the salt in the Atlantic in them.

Clearly a hobby horse of yours! You make some good points but you've picked the wrong example to start your rant - this is pretty good cheese (one of the favourites in this house anyway).

I'm pretty sure the deal is £1.60 in our local Tesco Extra. Bought several anyway.

If you like a cheese with flavour, then you won't rate Pilgrims Choice very highly. I tried this vintage when it was on offer and you would not guess its even a mature cheddar , never mind vintage.Its very mild.
The seriously strong has much more flavour.

This cheese contains 0.7g of sodium per 100g, which is slightly over 10% of the recommended GDA. 'Half the salt in the Atlantic' is being a tad dramatic... over cheese.

Guess what I like. Guess what I bought. Guess how I voted this post.
Even at the £1.90 in my Tesco it's a great buy.
