I think we need a national cheese in canuck land, something to go with the national cookie/biscuit......since we cannot dunk cheese, hows about the best cheese for glowing in da dark, any particular favorites for cheese kabobs??

I like cheddar. Not those bland blocks that you buy at Superstore, but the stuff you get at specialty shops that's so sharp it takes your breath away.

There is a very sharp cheddar

called "Old Rat Trap" that might be the one you're looking for Rev. but I haven't seen it for a few years.

For a Canadian cheese I would pick an aged, sharp, Cheddar, preferrably without the food colouring. I've forgotten the dopey reasons we have to have food colour in our cheese.

I think that if we had a national cheese it would be the powdered kind found in kraft dinner.

I agree with peppy

You can't have Cheddar as your national cheese - Cheddar is in somerset, ENGLAND.

Get your own cheese. What's that stuff you guys melt called? Poutine, or something? Is that cheesy? Have that one.

Right Henry

We have to call it something else. I like our Canadian cheddar but we have to put another name on it. There are a few cheddar like cheeses out there. Meanwhile here's a look at a bunch of different cheeses:

Ah,the taste of medium Cheddar on a crisp biscuit! Does it get any better? Everybody remembers The Cheese Shop skit by Monty Python..there is no cheese at all in Britain

Cool site, #jaun - I like cheesy things. (That's probably what attracted me to this board, innit, p? :P )

Incidentally - I noticed Cheshire on that list - my local cheese (I live in what was once Cheshire), and England's oldest. Damned tasty it is, too.

You've been eating cheese just before bedtime, haven't you?

Our cheddar is the best because we use the milk from many beavers to get just that Canadian flavour

I nominate missile the new leader of "cheese"

Thanks peapod

We will definitely get there. Courtney is only an hour away.

Somebody mentioned Kraft Dinner cheese. Has that stuff ever been near a cow? I have, and still do occasionally use Kraft Dinner but I always throw in a double handful of aged cheddar cheese. When I was going to UBC I lived on junk like that.

Aaah, we should have a national beer! Now you're thinkin' pea! We can be better than the Paris bunch, by havin beer and Cheese, possibly spread over nachos

As for the Cheeses...rubber, blech! Canadian Cheese is woinderful

I think I remember Rat Trap, but I also havent seen it in a very long time.

Try Imperial Cold Pack, rev - comes in a red-and-black plastic tub, kinda like sour cream. It just about makes your mouth pucker. I have some in the fridge as we speak.

Great with peanut butter on a Saltine.

We have some of that right now. It's yummy. There's this other stuff that I used to get at a butcher's shop in the north end. It was even better. It didn't have a name though. Sadly, that butcher's shop is gone.

Hmmmm - sounds like a good possibility alright - but I was just talking about "munchie food".
