Over the last year Sam's Club has upgraded their cheese selection. I have been buying the Danish Blue for a while now. It delivers an excellent blue cheese punch while being smooth and creamy for a reasonable price. The Cabot (a dairy co-operative from the Northeast started in the 1920's ) always has excellent cheddar some of them extremely sharp. This particular one is white (the natural color of cheddar) and fairly mild. What makes this special is the hand rubbed coating of sun dried tomatoes, dehydrated garlic and onions, cracked black pepper and fennel seeds. That backnote of licorice really adds to the cheddar flavor.
