to "themetalchef": If you still haven't found tillamook cheddar might i suggest looking for a nearby trader joe's. I was able to get tillamook in oh; when we moved to ma in 2000 i didn't find it anywhere but trader joe's. Just a few years back they went as far south as suburban d.c. They run pretty much down the coast now, coming to a screeching halt at the fl border.
I spun my grilled cheese a bit differently last time. Used fontina on a great hearty bread. It was a cranberry-pecan multi-grain bread...really really good! Not sure it would be my go-to choice all the time, though. There is something to be said for traditions.
my aunt has trader joe's in arizona also

I made grilled cheese using focacia bread, with 2 kinds of cheese: Gruyere and cheddar with a bit of mayo...grilled it on a hot skillet with a bit of butter and it turned out awesome...i addes sides of jalapeno pepper and a tall glass of iced tea.
