Hi all,

I wasn't sure where to put this, so I've plonked it here :D

What's the strongest tasting low fat cheddar you've come across? I've got Tesco extra mature low fat cheese, but it tastes like plastic to me :sigh:

Cathedral city lighter is ok, but I was wondering whether there's any others that have a nice strong taste. I like cheese to taste of cheese! :D xx

Morrisons do a greek style cheese in their Eat Smart range which is very strong - like feta - but its also quite salty too. Its great for salads but not for cooking with. And a big plus is that you can have 71g of it as a HexB choice on Green plan.

If I'm buying cheddar then its got to be Cathedral City lighter purely cos it melts like a full fat cheese.

I really like Waitrose own brand reduced fat cheddar- they do different strengths. I tried the strength 4 one, and that was really nice :)
I've tried lowlow, and it was a bit rubbery.

The waitrose one is the nicest I've tried so far...

Wyke Farm - used to be called Leskol. it came out top in a taste test of RF cheese on a cookery programme I saw a while back and the judges were chefs.

I've seen it in Asda and Tesco - it's in a bright pink wrapper. I don't shop in Sainsbury but I assume they would do it as well as it's a mainstream brand.

ETA there are details of where you can get it on their website and they even sell online if you are in the back of beyond

ETA2 It's on offer for £1 in asda at the moment

I am quite fussy about cheeses and at the moment am addicted to Pilgrims lighter as it really tastes like cheese! When it first came out it was constantly on offer too but sadly no more :( I had 6 blocks in my fridge at one point!x

Just updating to say that I can't believe it's not cheddar (30% less fat) is actually quite strong and tasty (and only £1.50 for 200g in Asda at the moment)
