Trader Joe’s – Collier’s Welsh Cheddar Cheese – Food Review

A cheddar with hints of an aged Gouda?   This is a fine tasting, slightly crumbly, but still creamy in the mouth, cheese.  While the length of aging of this cheese is not specified on the label, it’s just on the verge of developing those cheese crystals like an aged Gouda.  This is a “mature” tasting cheddar, meaning it’s not a mild cheddar.  But it’s also not a sharp cheddar. It’s an extremely nice and enjoyable cheese.

Collier’s refers to Welsh miners, called Colliers (think “coal ers”). The miners used to take this cheese down in the mines for lunch.  And for an interesting movie, based on real events in 1984, explaining how these same miners found common cause with a seemingly unlikely group, try Pride (2014) while you snack on the cheese.

    I saw this on a menu when I was in Wales recently but couldn’t eat as the waiter could not tell me if it contained animal rennet. Shame as it was on a ploughman’s platter which sounded fabulous.

      This one lists vegetarian rennet, but I’m not sure if that’s true for all. I have a feeling Collier’s is just a generic name for this kind of cheese. It’s a nice cheese, if you run across some with the ingredient list available. 🧀
