Cheddar is for eating with apples; Stilton (blue cheese) is for eating with port :)

Cheddar is also awfully good with fruit cake :) though so is a nice crumbly Wensleydale.

I like my cheese on oatcakes, but have taken a terrible notion to marmite crackers. Add that and Seriously Strong Rich Red Matured Scottish Cheddar, and it's a feast with a sliced apple or pear :)

One of my favorite cheeses, a swedish variety.

I tried some of that stuff, Vasterbottensost, iirc., from Ikea in Glasgow.
Weird stuff. Sort of bland and creamy and then unexpectedly bitter and sour/salty.
Might just be that Ikea isn't exactly top notch stuff, but it did rather put me off the stuff. Much like getting seaweed crispy things that smell/taste way too much of fish.

@JonathanD I think that 'processed' smoked stuff is like an overly squidgy Edam. Not that I'm terribly fond of Edam in the first place. Not fond of babybel at all. Squidge kind of sums them up.

@Toddy Well you foreigners don´t like salmiac either. :p


Ah, there you are mistaken. My Son has Finnish friends and he swaps Tetley Tea bags for Salmiaki with them on a fairly regular basis :)
HWTHMBLT is awfully fond of the stuff too.

I love liquorice, the hard chewy British stuff, but it doesn't like me. It's a migraine trigger :sigh:

I wonder sometimes about the quality of something like the Vasterbottensost sold in places like Ikea. Abroad, I mean. Not all cheese travels well. I'm sure that alone puts a lot of people off stuff that the locals really like.

That piece is good enough for about one sitting. Along with some cream crackers , pickle and pickled Onions.

Low in calories as well , so good choice.
