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 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.

Very disappointing. Couldn't be cut cleanly, just shattered into crumbs when you tried to cut it. Just like when cheese has been frozen previously. Not a creamy taste but a dry taste.

My little granddaughter had some thin slices with cucumber - came back three times asking for more. Also made some cheese scones which were so nice - I don’t do mild cheese, this one really hits the spot also good as a cheese and onion sandwich
