for american cheddar, I usually use Tilamook Cheddar from Oregon. They pretty much sell it all over as far as I know. If not, then:

Land o Lakes found at most grocery stores. We like the extra sharp. It is made in Arden Hills Mn. I went to landolakes.com and pulled their web page up.

Tillamook is an excellent cheese, but I wouldn't necessarily call it ULTRA sharp.

I've been spending many years looking for the sharpest cheddars on the planet and I can honestly say that supermarkets generally are not the best place to find them.

Deadly sushi, may I ask where you live? Are you sure you want to buy cheese online? By the time you pay the special shipping charges for refrigerated materials, I don't see it being worthwhile. You're much better off spending some time to find good cheese near you and put the money towards that (really good cheese isn't cheap).

Although you won't find the best prices there, you will find some ULTRA sharp cheese: Whole Foods.

Here is a link for the Illinois locations:

http://www.wholefoods.com/stores/list_IL.html

Trader Joes has better prices but their selections of Cheddars is not quite as good.

Here are their locations:

http://www.traderjoes.com/locations/search/ILLINOIS.asp

Whole Foods should have an English "farmhouse" cheddar that will knock your socks off. Whole Foods always has a multitude of cheese to choose from. They also should have a knowledgeable cheese person to address questions to.

Trader Joes has a small enough collection of cheddars/low enough prices that I would recommend buying one of each, except for their farmhouse cheddar which for some reason is nowhere nearly as good as Whole Foods. Keep an eye out for Dubliner - no, it's not ULTRA sharp and yes, it can be found in some supermarkets, but I think it's one of the best cheddars out there and Trader Joes has the best price on it.

Happy cheese hunting :)

Vermont cheddar cheese has taken the worldwide gold medal for 3 years in a row now. it is, the best cheddar on earth. Cabot makes an extra sharp cheddar called Old School Cheddar that is aged 5 years. So sharp that I can only take a little at the time. They have a website

That "Old School Cheddar" sounds like it's right up my alley. I'll keep an eye out for that, thanks.
