Boxing Cheddar From Australia
November 28, 2010
As most of you already know, The Lady and I have never met a cheddar we didn’t like and in most cases, didn’t love… Boxing Cheddar from Australia is no exception to the “love” column. And at $7.99 a pound, retail, it’s also a great bargain for the cheddar lovers of the Pacific Northwest. (The Lady saw it last year at Costco for about half that price… she should have bought it… shoulda, coulda, woulda… or as our friend Nancy, married to The Man’s BFF, Gary, likes to say… “it’s a sorry if…” you’ll be sorry if you don’t buy it when you see it at Costco…)
Anyway, forgive the digression there…
Boxing Cheddar, complete with a Kangaroo on the packaging, is imported by DPI, the same folks who ban access to this very blog. I have been unable to discover who produces this “tasty” cheddar and if any of my loyal readers have a clue, please share…
Boxing Cheddar is aged three years and is nutty and tangy with a nice bite that lingers after the cheese is gone. We had it on a cheese plate with other cheeses The Lady procured while out spying on the competition. I love that The Lady has no qualms about buying new cheeses from her competitors… but only cheeses she doesn’t carry in her own cheesemines…
I give Boxing Cheddar 3 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got…).
Serving Suggestions: On a cheese plate for snacking and in cooking, especially au gratins and the ever ubiquitous mac n cheese.
Beer Pairing: James Squire Brewhouse Australian Brown Ale
