Great Balls Of Cheese!

AdvantagesRich Creamy Taste, Low In Fat.

DisadvantagesQuite Expensive.

"...large supermarkets. At my local Asda you can expect to pay £3.15 per Kg for the standard red variety or slightly more for the vegetarian Yellow variety (around £3.30) so it is not cheap but you do get rather a lot in a Kilo. I have not seen the black mature variety in UK but understand that it available at specialised outlets but I have no idea of the cost. Other Information Although Yellow Edam is specifically made for Vegetarians it is still ..." Read review

"==EDAM A CHEESE AND A TOWN== I keep torturing myself writing about cheese when I try to restrict the amount I eat for health and weight matters. But here I go again and this time I am talking about a family favourite - especially with the children -Edam.

AdvantagesGood value for a healthy option

DisadvantagesNot home produced, does not go with pizza

Made in heaven

AdvantagesDelicate mild taste, easily grated or sliced

DisadvantagesNot spreadable - but it's hard so that's obvious!

"For some reason when I was little I loved the way Edam spells "made" backwards. Ha ha, very funny - happily that's not the only reason I gave this review it's title! Edam cheese comes originally from Holland, I believe, and is easy to recognise in the supermarket for its scarlet rind. The cheese is presumably made in big round balls, because you buy it usually in hefty slices that seem to come from a sphere. Price-wise it's not expensive, compared ..." Read review

Advantagestastes FAB

Disadvantagesnot great on toast

"EDAM........ wow what a cheese...... i really don't know what else to say about this cheese other than it is absolutly fabulous...... it looks great and tastes wonderful and the price is good... at the end of the day you get what you pay for... if you are prepared to pay the little bit extra for a great taste then this is the cheese for you..... it is not an over powering flavour....... and if you grate it and sprinkle it over a salad then i'm sure ..."
