Poor Pilgrims Choice
I have had Pilgrims Choice Extra Mature Cheddar for years and it's been very good. This last block of 550gms is tasteless and rubbery no hint of any crumblyness very disappointing will not be buying this brand again!
Awful cheese, texture like Edam (rubbery) and tasteless! What's happening, it's described to have 'a slight crunch and a mighty tasty punch'. The cheese graders should be hot under the collar with embarrassment.

really disappointed with this cheese as for an extra mature cheese it lacks flavour.
Tasty but not toasted.
It is very tasty and good for sandwiches but unfortunately just does not brown up at all when used for toasted cheese so will not be buying again.
I shall definitely buy again....
First time I have tried this particular cheese, but added it to my order, as it was on offer. Found it very versatile, It is a good strong mature cheese, but also contains the slightly sweet taste, which I have found makes it suitable for both sauces, and sandwiches.
Best there is!
We love this cheese and wouldn’t buy anything else. We buy the Extra Mature - it’s very strong with a great slightly crumbly texture which we prefer. It’s certainly not waxy which we don’t prefer! I also prefer the packaging as I can never get the re-seal packets to actually do that without a lot of messing about. An all-round winner in this home!
Tasty, always a good use by date.
Cheese is my weakness - I love it. This is one of my favourites, and is generally good value for money. I was disappointed that the packaging has been changed. The old packaging could be resealed which kept the cheese fresh. The new packing, while apparently consisting of 40% less plastic than the old one, can't be resealed once it’s been opened. So I have to use plastic to wrap the cheese in to keep it fresh, thereby doubling my own use of plastic. Bad call, Pilgrims, for which I’ve taken one star off.
This is now my favourite cheddar - great for both
This is now my favourite cheddar - great for both cooking and eating with crackers etc. Good strong taste. Would recommend.
Seems to have changed for the worse
This cheese seems to have changed in taste since its packaging change. No longer crisp and mature but rather waxy and medium flavour only- disappointing and I will have to try out others to get a cheese with real depth and flavour
Not the mature flavour I expected #disappointed
Unfortunately I was lured by the Club Price. This was a disappointing purchase. It promised mature cheese and it let me down. The texture is excellent but flavour was bog standard.
