white cheddar can be found at Wal-Mart, not hard to find. Cabot's
Ask the wholesaler who they supply... that will lead you to a store.

This can be different from store to store. Not every store carries the same things. I do not even know of a Wal-Mart anywhere near me that carried cheese.

Don't you have a Meijer nearby? They carry both their own (organic) brand of white cheddar, which is so-so in my opinion, and at least one other - I think it's a canadian brand, black diamond maybe? But remember, it won't be with the other cheeses and dairy stuff where you'd find Kraft cheese or pre-shredded cheese. It's in a different part of the store.

So now I'm confused. You want to join a "cheese of the month" club because you couldn't find white cheddar for a recipe? Didn't you say in your original post it was because you wanted to explore all the cheeses from stinky on down, etc.? What does one have to do with the other? And I don't care where you live - any mainstream supermarket carries blocks of white cheddar, & that includes discount supermarkets like Walmart & Target.

Sorry, but I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this thread, like others of a similar nature from the same poster. I'm guessing it's time for me to hit the "ignore" feature for Chile Chef.

I don't think so; I think he was using that to illustrate the difficulty he's had finding good cheeses. I responded to it to illustrate that a regional grocery chain we have here in Michigan would have had what he was looking for, as they have a pretty good selection of finer cheeses.

He was not saying one had to do with the other.

Issue 1: He wants to experience new cheeses.

Issue 2: He had tried to find white cheddar in the past and had lots of trouble even locating that so finding more specialty cheeses will most likely be even more difficult.

I'm not generalizing, Breezy.

I've shopped cheese departments in large supermarkets all over the country and with the exception of Wegman's, I haven't found them to carry much good or interesting cheese.

Sure they have a large selection of non-Kraft cheeses -- my local Stop and Shop carries 50 different kinds at least -- but I do not consider them fine cheeses (with the exception of Vermont Butter and Cheese products).

Also, I can't remember not seeing white cheddar in any supermarket. Even Kraft makes it.
