It's hard to imagine a time and place when Cheddar wouldn't be welcome. It's flavors range from mild -- nutty, and creamy - to extra sharp - rich and robust. If you want a little tang, try a white Cheddar. If you're looking for something smoother, smoked Cheddars will deliver.

Cheddar is a no-brainer for soups, sauces, salads, sandwiches, casseroles, pizza. you name it. One more reason to keep Cheddar stocked in the fridge: it's tasty on its own.
