You can substitute "regular" cheddar for white. While there is considerable difference between various cheddars, the only difference between yellow and white is food coloring, usually annatto or paprika oil, which is added to the cheese to give it the darker, orange color with which most Americans are familiar.

For more information, check Wikipedia: Cheddar cheese - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cabot's Vermont Cheddar is white. Pretty much, all New York and Vermont cheddars are white, because they aren't colored yellow. and you can get them in varying degrees of sharpness, depending upon your taste preference.

Actually, white cheddar tends to be a sharp, aged cheddar which can not be said for most yellow cheddar unless it is labeled as such. If you do substitute one for the other, be sure you find a sharp (or extra sharp if you use Kraft) yellow cheddar as it will taste closer to what the original recipe intended.

Another label on more flavorful yellow cheddars is "aged". I live in "America's Dairyland" (not quite in Wisconsin but only a few miles away) and often take a ride and hit small, local cheese shops. I can buy cheddar aged a year, two or three, five, etc, and they are more flavorful and sharp.

Both white and yellow cheddar come in mild, medium, sharp, extra sharp, and with various amounts of age (which I believe directly relates to sharpness). Americans generally favor the yellow stuff, so the white tends to be less common and often of higher quality since mostly cheese connoisseurs buy it.

My apologies, I've lived in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Oregon and have never seen anything other than sharp (or aged) white cheddar. Mild or fresher white is typically called Farmer's Cheese and is a soft cheese, much like Colby or a very mild cheddar. I'm glad I learn something every day!
