Marble Cheddar Cheese.

This post was inspired by my little sister and the countless amounts of customers that ask me for this cheese. Ok.. SO, let me just let you on to something. Apparently, LOADS of people think that marble cheddar cheese is a blend of mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

Yes! i know! RIDICULOUS! First of all, the consistency & texture of both cheeses are so different, there's no way they'd bind together so perfectly and look identical and melt together so easily. Think about it. Or not... hehe

so.. let me be the first to tell you all: THERE IS NO MOZZARELLA IN MARBLE CHEDDAR CHEESE! I think having the word CHEDDAR in the name is a dead give-away that this is in fact a cheddar cheese product. Marble cheddar is exactly what it says.. Cheddar, with a marble looking effect. How do they do this? Well, you see.. they take WHITE cheddar.. (oh my! yes! there is such a thing! in fact, cheddar is white.. and they add a natural additive/colouring to make it that dark orangey/yellow colour!).. and then they take the orange cheddar.. and MIX'em together.. and VOILA! marble cheddar! Pretty AWESOME huh? ; )

I just felt the need to inform the population of this.. because it seems to be something quite a lot of people seem to have no clue about. And for a cheese expert like myself.. *insert fromage snobbery here*.. hehehe ;) ... well, it was driving me up the wall! Yep. THat's right. I needed to set the record straight. It was vital for me to do in my lifetime. hehehe ; )

I, personally.. don't like it much. Mostly because they tend to use mild cheddar to make it. Which is bland with little or no taste. I prefer Medium to Old cheddar cheeses.

So, go cut yerself a hunk of some cheese and EAT IT and enjoy!! : )))
