    Not such a fan of those cheaper Tesco meals with their chicken shipped over from Thailand.

    Waitrose Lighter Davidstow Cheese : 8 / 10

    Easily the nicest low(er) fat cheese that I've tried, and I've tried a lot. Melts really well and has a slightly crumbly texture with a good strong flavour.
    Waitrose Firm and Flinty Davidstow: 100000000000/10.

    Simply the finest cheese known to man. Sharp and crumbly and awesome

    Lidl have a lot of good pickled stuff, but their huge jars of pickled roasted peppers are incredibly tasty and very good value.

    Blot them on kitchen roll to avoid over-vinegaring. Great in sandwiches or salads, or simply stuff them with cream cheese and devour.

    10/10

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    M&S Cornish Cove Cheddar - 10/10

    Gorgeous, crumbly delicious cheddar in varying strengths. Their Cornish Cruncher is sublime too but a little bit more expensive.

    Also good finely chopped in a steak sandwich.

    I must admit, I love Sainsburys... It keeps the riffraff out of Waitrose.
  • Deleted user 8 April 2012 17:47:26
    Waitrose has the best till staff near me. They actually try to look like contact with humans isn't torture for them.

    It is generally because they are all decidedly middle class. Waitrose took over lots of Safeway stores on the condition that no-one lost their job. I was not surprised when all the people with tattoos or who looked a bit 'urban' got shifted to back room duties...

    Waitrose is part owned by every member of staff there, it's in their best interest to treat customers well.

    Sainsbury's freshly made pizza

    2.99 for a 10" base with three toppings. I went for ham, chicken and mushroom.

    Made in-store by a pleasant assistant whose only failing was not being the hot girl operating the ovens (you can have your pizza cooked there and then for a surcharge of 1.00). He made the pizza swiftly and was happy to accommodate my request to use only a moderate amount of pizza sauce.

    The pizza didn't go floppy when cooked, as some are wont to do. The sauce was okay but the cheese was tasteless, although there was plenty of it. The toppings were also plentiful and had a decent amount of flavour, the ham being the highlight.

    7/10

    I can't remember what type of cheese it said they used on the signage, or if it even said at all. I wouldn't be surprised if it was non-specific, it certainly tasted non-specific. It looked like it could have been any yellow cheese.

    Lidl alfresco Lasagna.

    An unbelievable 10/10 here, its only 2.60 for 1kg.

    Way way better than any other ready meal lasagna.

    I work in the dairy industry and the kind of cheese thats used for pizzas and ready meals is the tasteless neutral kind. We have even had cheese returned for being to "yellow" or too "tasty" top tip: if you want really nice grated cheese then buy a block and grate it yourself because only the sub standard cheese that won't make the grade is sold for grating.

    Yeah, those are lovely. They can be a bit scanty on cheese but you can always bung some of your own on there.

    Thanks wibbly bib. I usually top up shop bought pizzas with some grated medium cheddar. Makes an average pizza into something you would be happy to take home to meet your mom.

    I rather like Asda stonebaked pizza they make in store. Reasonable value if you buy them in 15" then serve to two/three people (or cut them before cooking and only cook half). Decent dough and the toppings are reasonably generous at least in my store. 7/10

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Lidel - Flavorini milky hazelnut wafer slices

    Lidel seems to be having an Italian fest at the moment and have these in and they are bloody lovely and at only 1.28 they are a bargain, too!

    Thick quality chocolate filled with generous hazelnut bits sandwiched between two wafers, one of which is coated in more chocolate. I dont know how long they will ivar these in for so I would hurry.

    10/10

    Sainsbury's Finest Aberdeen Angus and West Country Cheddar burgers are awesome.

    Morrisson's is also currently selling a Red Hot Dutch Gouda cheese, made with extra chilli, which is very nice and would go well on a spicy pizza.

    Asda's Wagyu beef is amazingly good. Costs about the same as my local butcher but the quality is miles ahead.

    Makes me feel a bit sorry for the butcher but at least I still buy all my other meat from him.

    It's Gouda, not Cheddar :-D

    Plus you can have more than once cheese on a pizza you know! What do you think Quattro Formaggi is?
