Cheese reviews

Yesterday I picked up three of the Mainland Premium Reserve label cheeses.


The Havarti is very creamy and very yummy. Jadeen liked this cheese best. I think I did too. It didn’t cut very well, being very rubbery but it had an awesome smooth creamy taste and texture.

Cheese for the President

More cheese last night.


The Mersey Valley Pickled Onion cheese has a sweet but sharp taste. You can’t eat too much of it at once. But it is VERY nice. It is crumbly but does cut well. The slices however will break very quickly if not laid onto bread or a cracker quickly.


The Apricot and Almond Fruit Cheese is a favourite of the girls. It is not so sweet that you can’t eat much, but has just the right combination of fruit and spices. It cuts very well and goes great on crackers. If I was Barack Obama I would eat some to celebrate becoming POTUS (President of the United States). Maybe if I was John McCain I would eat some and deny that I had lost!

Cheese Reviews

More yummy cheese tasting reviews after the responses to the last cheese post.

LuLu – the blue cheese was from your request.


The King Island Dairy Roaring forties Blue cheese has a quite sharp taste, your definitely not overpowering. I have been eating this in sandwiches. Not crumbly yet not soft, sort of in between – a very nice smooth texture.

We love cheese.

IMG_3102The girls are learning to try different cheeses and see what they do and don’t like.

On Friday we sampled a selection for dessert after dinner. We ate them on different flavoured rice crackers and added spicy kabana, stuffed olives and pickled onions.

I have photographed each cheese and added a small description of its flavour and characteristics for your enjoyment.

Bon Appetit!
