That's not quite true. I haven't been eating much cheese the last month, and the Aro block of cheese I have in my fridge now has mold.

Good to know

there is only one CHEDDAR, and that is where i came from in the UK, now every Tom Dick and Harry, makes some cheese and calls it Cheddar, Duh !! cant beat a mature strong tangy cheddar from the proper place, one that burns your tongue, lol

I'm from Somerset too and I totally agree, all the other chedders just don't taste the same...

It was this one for 260 baht iirc...

But look at the flavour strength slider, it's only halfway and that for a 18 months old cheese? Old amsterdam is about the same age and sure has a strong taste.

That "Tasty" is a misnomer IMHO. Mainland's "Epicure" and "Vintage" versions are pretty decent though and are priced the same.

I too am from Somerset - I find the Mainland Cheddar quite satisfactory, in particular when combined with my home made cider - which the present situation has caused me to take up ptoducing!

Siamburi (Pattaya) have mature white cheddar in stock.........bought a block this week .....nice and sharp...........might be a mistake announcing it to the world....cheese.jpg

I also thought it was a very very decent cheese for the price.

I wish Siamburi's would deliver to Bangkok via the bus.

I used to drink lots of cider, mostly Taunton traditional drought, You knew it wasn't fresh if it wasn't orange and you could see through it. I have Diabetes now alas, so I can't drink it now, too much sugar and carbs, even if you make it without putting any in. This has made me start to seriously think of brewing my own beer and wine though, it can't come out tasting much worse than the rubbish you buy here surely...

Yesterday Makro Lad Prau got two 500 grams Norwegian smoked salmon slabs 550 baht each and couple of very nice Aro brand Ricotta cheese 250 grams 75 baht made in Nakhon Rachasima 1.5 kg NZ roast lamb ready to cook 580 baht, let nearly 5,000 baht there but most of their stuff are good value..

Stomach problems?

Nope, the taste was unsuitable for me, it just did not taste like cheese.

Back in the day a flagon of Old Rosie was the cheapest way of getting <deleted> short of hitting the hardware shops IIRC.

Back in the day, (I'm talking 70's/80's), We used to go to any number of local farms with our own gallon containers and get it filled up for anything from 1.50 to 2.50 quid. You certainly knew you'd drunk something when you got started on 'proper job' rough...

I have been to Marko in Chaeng Wattana but l noticed a *Makro food service* the other day while driving.

Do they stock the same items in the food service store just without the bulk buying option?

 

Asking as this is a Makro thread.

Many thanks.

5 litre of raw milk (in a plastic bag) from the Thai-Danish dairy is 130bht.

Not much more than you paid in the 70s/80s.
