Camembert going through the tills at 89p instead of £1.09 at Aldi! It was already pretty cheap, but is very cheap now I think. Wasn't marked up on the shelf. See first comment for receipt.

Best before 8th of feb, so doesn't seem to be short dated.

I was very well behaved, I didn't go back for any more. I had huge argument with myself outside the shop, but I have eaten enough cheese this xmas already :X

Good deal if well within date. Be careful if near best before date as cheeses like camembert and brie styles tend to get an ammonia flavour when very ripe- I don't like that flavour, some might.

Best before 8th feb so well within date. I have to admit, I like mine a little mature though, so will let it fester for a while

Voted hot.

I also like ripe, but when it goes one step beyond is where I find the problem. One of the few cheeses I don't buy if reduced and anywhere near sell by. As you say, this is well within.

Fab kitten!

It was hysterical in the lead up to Christmas in my house, every time anyone opened the fridge they were like 'poooh who farted!' X)
Still got one left lol love it X)

LOL! It can be a bit pongy it's true I have a cheese box with a carbon filter X)

I just finished the last of mine off from Christmas, now i might need to get more ! Bad Kitty x

This reduction was marked on the shelf in our local.

**** cheese deal. Wtf.

Am I missing something? You save 20p? Deal of the century! (_;)

I'm leaving my chilled champers and oysters for this bad boy deal.

Bon annie!!!

There is no way I would touch a camembert with a long durability date like this. Either the cheese is crap or the seller has altered the date (unlawfully). Not voting either way, but really? You want to try this - prepare for disappointment, orally or ****.

Really.... 5 weeks .... really

Good stuff too. Generally prefer hard cheeses. My GF works opposite ALDI and noticed the price drop tonight - it would appear it's listed at 89p at some of them else she'd not have known to stock up on them!

Probably uses rennet, which would make it unsuitable.

As does milk. Not all cheese is vegetarian however some still uses rennet from stomachs - explained below. Many modern alternatives now. I personally find cheese made using rennet tastes off - avoid it regardless of ethics. It just doesn't taste nice IMO. This product is not marked as vegetarian on mysupermarket who are usually pretty good at this things so it very likely does use rennet - a pass from me.

"Natural calf rennet is extracted from the inner mucosa of the fourth stomach chamber (the abomasum) of slaughtered young, unweaned calves. These stomachs are a by-product of veal production. If rennet is extracted from older calves (grass-fed or grain-fed) the rennet contains less or no chymosin but a high level of pepsin and can only be used for special types of milk and cheeses. As each ruminant produces a special kind of rennet to digest the milk of its own species, there are milk-specific rennets available, such as kid goat rennet for goat's milk and lamb rennet for sheep's milk.

Traditional method[edit]
Dried and cleaned stomachs of young calves are sliced into small pieces and then put into saltwater or whey, together with some vinegar or wine to lower the pH of the solution. After some time (overnight or several days), the solution is filtered. The crude rennet that remains in the filtered solution can then be used to coagulate milk. About 1 gram of this solution can normally coagulate 2 to 4 litres of milk.[citation needed]

Modern method[edit]
Deep-frozen stomachs are milled and put into an enzyme-extracting solution. The crude rennet extract is then activated by adding acid; the enzymes in the stomach are produced in an inactive form and are activated by the stomach acid. The acid is then neutralized and the rennet extract is filtered in several stages and concentrated until reaching a typical potency of about 1:15,000; meaning 1 gram of extract can coagulate 15 kg (15 litres) of milk."

Thanks very much! Looking forward to one of these...

Personally I can't wait to insert this goo into my grill. That's a cracking saving. I'm going to use all of that 20p towards my French odyssey which I'm planning in March. #winningin2015
