Really nice cheese Fantastic strong flavour prefer extra mature myself and only £2.50 Cathedral City Mature Cheddar - smooth and mellow, a timeless classic.
Up and down the country, sitting splendidly in a sandwich or bubbling beautifully on toast, there's quite like Cathedral City. That's because our Cornish creamery only uses milk from dedicated West Country farmers to create our distinctive, smooth, creamy cheddar every time. Which is why we're proud to be The Nation's Favourite.

Winner of the four poor specimens tested. Bit like being best dunce in the class.

Don't know how they picked the cheese's but heres the result...
1. Cathedral City Mature Cheddar (£2.75/200g, market leader)

2. Pilgrim's Choice Mature Cheddar (£3/350g)

3. Keen's Mature Cheddar Cheese (£3.49/220g) - but this was praised by cheese expert Tom Calver for being 'three dimensional instead of two dimensional like the others'.

4. Sainsbury's British Mature Cheddar Cheese (£1.95/270g)

Now I'm not saying it's the finest cheddar in the land but if you're buying a mass produced cheddar then it seems to be a good compromise. I'm sure some locally produced cheddar may be deemed a better product but perhaps for a cheese board rather than as an ingredient.

There were a few revealing comments on the cheese topic. The cloying texture of Cathedral city being one I'd agree with - more like processed cheese than real cheddar. Also the definition of an 'artisan' cheesemaker as one that produced less than 200 tonnes per annum. 200 tonnes is industrial cheese - the 'artisan' is pretentious nonsense.
Sadly, most, if not all ('artisan' included) cheddar is now plastic wrapped, so how it can breathe/dry during the maturing process is a bit of a mystery. If you're old enough to remember real cheese - matured in muslin and with a hard rind - you'd appreciate how bad most modern cheese is.
I reckon Seriously Strong is the best of a bad bunch. More flavour and better texture than CC which is more like Dairylea than real cheddar.
