Cheese, Anyone?

Yes, excellent, wonderful, well done you, for being so industrious AND thrifty..but don't you think the 20 baht reduction in the "Tasty" red, mature New Zealand cheese is also worth a small comment?

No. I don't.

Saving 2,000 baht would be worth a sentence or two. Saving 200 baht, perhaps a word or two. But 20 baht? No, I don't think so.

Well maybe not for you...I was merely trying to be helpful to a wider audience. But, as they say, "No good deed goes unpunished" or maybe, "no thread is safe from being hijacked".

 

Cheesy grin to you 🙂

Macro Mae Rim was selling the Mainland Mature, Vintage and Gouda at the old price of 177, last week. Also, Makro sells some especially nice cheddar in 1 kilo blocks at 790. Anchor brand and also some US made mild cheddar at the same price - decent cheese can be found without spending the earth, as MHM has pointed out.

Do you mean the cheese below?  NZ vintage is at least twice as good.

No. And how do you know if it’s twice as good if you don’t know what you’re comparing it against? 😛

Breston Cheddar: you must mean 350 baht per 200 gms of imported cheese from OZ, not per kilo.

IMO, most cheese is no more than high priced, concentrated animal fat with distinctive smell and taste.  the fat is a known contributor to heart and artery trouble and oops, obesity and persistent constipation.

Just bought a package (200 gms net) of Thai made Feta cheese, packed in brine. I like it; no import taxes and only 155 baht. I also need some salt during the day so this satisfies.

Can buy at Makro and Rimping (some).  

I miss the 1kg can of Bulgarian fetta cheese made from sheep milk back in oz for the same price. not for the faint  hearted  though

You should look up the latest research on dairy and fats which is contrary to your statement, and anyway who eats great quantities of cheese at a time.

 

The French, usually regarded as great imbibers of cheeses, dairy and supposed bad fats have one of the lowest heart disease rates in Europe and although the "French Paradox" wasn't what it seemed to be, their rates are still lower than many.

 

I subscribe to the old saying, "everything in moderation".

I eat cheese all day long and am thin and shit like a champ.

Have to agree that the Vintage stuff is okay , Tasty is not bad but Edam is rubbery ! ( no old Chinese joke intended ).
BUT, it’s the price that’s the downfall for these cheeses.
Makro remains the best bargain for cheese fanatics in LOS but you have to buy 2 kilos to make it worth your while ( 2 kilos !! , okay then emoji51.png).

Thankfully I’m making a cheese run at the weekend back to the Mecca of cheese aficionados ( Yorkshire ), have my cooler bags and ice packs at the ready.
Have already instructed my daughter to fill her bath with melted Wensleydale!, out of the airport, quick drive down the M62 , don my snorkel and flippers and a shallow swan dive from the cold tap into cheese heaven !!

Well it was Wallaces favourite of course (or was it Grommits favourite?)

That's why I posted the photo.  I was comparing seriously strong cheddar to the NZ Vintage cheddar and the NZ was twice as good as the seriously strong.

In the UK for a few months earlier this year and I ate huge amounts of outstanding cheese, extra mature cheese from M&S, 500grams, £3, who wouldn't!

 

But despite the huge intake of fats, my blood tests came back as some of the best I've ever seen in the past ten years, PLUS, I lost 6 kgs during the trip....go figure.
