Information provided by The British Cheese Board.

An organisation dedicated to providing information about cheese - and also continuing the British tradition of having a punning name.

And what is 'over 98%'? other than 99% or 100%?

OK it will be a decimal I know.

But perhaps some of the 98% are buying cheese and NOT enjoying it?

No that is crazy talk.

For UK PSO'ers

Here's a money saving tip:

If you like to nibble different types of cheese then buy this from the Cheese Counter at Tesco's

(link not working) http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/

Type in "Counter Five Counties" in the search terms in Tesco's groceries.

Cheese is the Number 1 thing I miss having moved to Canada.

You can get 2 types of cheese here and both taste like rubber.

If you have a local Co-op close by, their own brand is probably the best I have tried since moving here It's either Market Town or Co-op Gold

Deeply saddened to here of Grade b's dilemma - because processed rubbery cheese is not good.

Definitely a gap in the market there.

So any Canadians out there with lactating livestock - step up and make some cheese!

Nice enough idea though.

'Layers of Derby,Red Leicester,Cheshire,Double Gloucester and Cheddar'

Next time I am out at the Tesco Extra in Corstorpine (where they sell everything - from cheese to bicycles) I will see if they have it. I don't shop off the internet but that is the obvious option.

If I find some I will give it a quality test.

I don't get this reference at all!

Nice picture of a plate of cheese & biscuits though.

I don't recognise the guy at all - the girl seems familiar - possibly Ms H off-of the telly?

Any further info / explanation appreciated.

I hate cheese itself since I find it too salty, but I love it combined with some eggs, bacon or pasta.
Also that pic is from the TV series How I met your mother, if you are not a TV nerd you will probably not get it.

Its not true to say that Canada is devoid of cheese I guess, in the cities I'm sure they are filling their faces with the stuff, But here in the sticks not so much as a tesco metro to be seen. (the misses can get bree mind and thats considered posh here!!!

I have heard of the show HIMYM - but never seen it. Probably on some obscure channel here though obviously a hit US sitcom looking at the wiki write up.

At least I did recognise Ms H off-of the telly - Alyson Hannigan - not a TV nerd - but definitely a Buffy nerd.

Just around a dozen or so miles from me is Cheddar, so I am spoiled for choice for amazing cheeses and farmers markets.

My own personal favorite is Wookey Hole Cheddar, where it is aged in the caves there. You can actually get this in Tescos, and won 'supreme champion' at the international cheese awards a few years back as the worlds best cheese.

Love a bit of blacksticks blue also .... yummmmm .
