Cathedral City mature cheddar cheese 550g better than half price £3 (usually £6.99) @ Tesco

45
Found 21st Jul 2013
Works out at £5.45/kg, which is as close to £5kg as you can get at the moment for the people waiting for the next Cathedral City/Pilgrim's/Seriously Strong counter cheese to come on offer at £5/kg at Tesco.

Slightly better than the Asda deal which is 700g for £4 (£5.71/kg)

picked this up today. heat

Should've gone to Asda, you get 2 for a fiver!

Works out at well over the £5 a kilo price limit for me, so cold from me.

Yes, that 25p extra per block makes all the difference!

maths not your forte?

The Asda deal is 2 x 350g (700g) for £4.00 so £5.71 per kg

This Tesco deal is 550g for £3.00 so £5.45 per kg

The Tesco deal is 26p cheaper per kg and you can get that price despite buying a smaller quantity and with lower spend.

The winner is kneale81. Hot for me.

Actually, I achieved a grade A in A-level Maths and I'm currently doing an Economics degree which is highly mathematical, so I do consider maths my forté, but that's completely beside the point.

The deal I posted is 550g for £3. Quietus said they voted cold because it was over £5/kg. If this block was on sale at £5/kg then it would be £2.75, hence the 25p difference I replied with.

I'm with you on the Costco cheddar. Much more flavour than this Cathedral stuff although I appreciate that the taste of cheese will be very subjective.
I also think that the Sains #5 cheddar (on offer at 2 x 400g for £5 ) has much more flavour than Cathedral.
Each to his own.

The Lidl deal is 400g for £1.99 so £4.98 per kg

The Lidl deal is 47p cheaper per kg and you can get that price despite buying a smaller quantity and with lower spend. But brand snobs need not apply. (_;)

And what the OP posted isn't real cheese?
As in most things you get what you pay for - spend some more than £5/kg and you'll get a more flavoursome cheese.

What did you have in mind for "real cheese"?

mild and creamy cornish cheddar - £5.60/kg at the waitrose cheese counter. different strengths but it could be a better option for taste.

But English is not your forte. Forte has no accent on its last letter. It is pronounced the same as the English word fort. It is the French word for strong point.

Actually you're both wrong. It indeed has no accent, but people don't pronounce it "fort", they pronounce it "fort-ay" (a bit like the Italian musical term for loud, which is probably why it's pronounced that way).

Good spot. I've always found £5.71 per kg to be the best price, so in my book a new record has been set! Heat added, good deal.

Mild & creamy? Might as well buy Dairylea.
What good is Cheddar without a bit of bite to it?

Mild & creamy? A bit like buying 2degrees proof beer.
Put some hairs on your chest - go for the full strength!!

If we're going to argue about cheese, why would you eat any cheddar other than vintage on its own? Medium and mild cheddars are only good for cooking. Cathedral City mature is hardly as exciting as you suggest.

Looks like it's been extended from tomorrow to 30 July, so you'd get charged the £3 still tomorrow.

I got vintage and extra mature for a fiver at Asda, yes vintage is only 300g but these two have much more flavour and worth the extra bit.

there is also a £1 off voucher inside the tesco magazine

Theres always some cheese on offer at one time or another

Has Cathedral City ever been full price?

ASDA extra mature cheddar is only £5/kg and it tastes a lot better than this crap. Each to their own though...

Loving two men argue over hard cheese.......

That will go with the bacon!

anybody know where all the vintage has gone !. Cant seem to find any on the shelves around us at the moment, at any of the main supermarkets.

£6.99 original price, my backside! Why supermarkets over price these items for weeks just to put them on a 'sale' every now and then is pathetic.

Cheese snobs and grammar nazis in the same thread!

only Ukhotdeals could produce such a meeting of the elite!

Normally scan the deli counters at Morrisons or Sainsburys for offers on there, today at Morrisons I got brie for £4per kilo, Lockerbie Mature coloured chedder at £5 per kilo and Wensleydale and cranberry at £5.66per kilo

Cannot believe what I am reading here...Surely the fact someone has taken the time to highlight a bargain to those that like this cheese, it should be commended...Heat added as I love it. Not to everyone's taste but to commoners like me I would rather 550g of Cathedral City than any of that so called posh classy cheese...Ha Ha
