Extra Mature Cheddar Cheese £5 for 1KG block, very tasty!! From Farm Foods

LocalFound 9th Feb 2013
Have been buying this cheese for the past 2-3 years, cheaper per kg than any other supermarket as a regular price. This is a really tasty cheese, nothing like the plastic own brands.

I used to be works manager for a cheese producer and part of my job was assisting QC tasting the cheeses.

The comments above are my own as a cheese lover and finder of bargains.

Sounds cheap. Are you sure it's not horse cheese? :-)

Anyone else tried this?
Haven't seen the 1Kg blocks in either of the two Farmfoods I use. They do have 400g blocks of Mild, Mature & Extra Mature at £2.50 each or 2 for £4, which is the same £5/Kilo. The cheese tastes as nice as the other brands that are often on sale at larger supermarkets (Cathedral City, Lake District, Pilgrim's Choice, etc.)
Tesco sell creamfields mature cheese slices at £1.99 for 400g . That works out at £4.50 a kilo and it comes ready sliced - ideal for sandwiches.
I buy this when Tesco don't have any other mature cheese on offer. There is usually a decent cheese at £4.50/Kg at the deli counter though. Last week it was "Old Shires Special Reserve" at £4.50/Kg and you don't have to buy a full kilo to get this price.

Don't buy it then I like strong flavoured mature cheese. Mild cheddar is, in my humble opinion, a waste of money!! All down to personal choice.

I normally love the extra mature cheeses. I don't know whether I had a bad batch at Farm Food once, but it was not so good. I do however love their regular mature cheese and always buy this. Heat for a good offer if you like the flavour of this particular extra mature!

Cheese is very much a matter of personal taste, but the emphasis is on taste, and I begrudge paying for some of the tasteless 'mature' cheese available. It is in the description, mature or matured? A cheese of 3 months old can be called matured, but not mature!! A year old mature cheese deserves its name tho. (_;)

The official description is:

Mild Cheddar is typically sold at about 3 months of age; medium matured Cheddar at 5 to 6 months; mature Cheddar at around 9 months, Extra Mature at around 15 months and Vintage at 18 months or more.
