  1. The Cracker Barrel Matured Cheddar (Black foil wrapping) used to be my dear old Dad’s favourite, back in 1960’s London!
    So yes!

  2. When I was growing up, Cracker Barrel sold some of the first really sharp cheddar available in grocery stores (at least, where I lived). I love sharp cheddar. There are much better brands today, but at the time, it was relatively high quality and pricey (again, for supermarket cheese). There were places to get good cheese even then, but not places that are easy for a ten-year-old to get to.

  3. IMHO Cabot brand cheese is much better than Cracker Barrel brand cheese. But I’m used to New York state cheeses and Cabot has cheddar of that type. There is much more variety within brand than differences between brands.

  4. I worked at Cracker Barrel years ago and I’ll be completely honest with you. No it’s not special at all. It’s just cheese, just a name! I didn’t like rules upon (uppity) rules. I’m probably one of the most down to earth people you’ll ever meet. Don’t claim or act to be better than anyone so I didn’t work there long. But I’ll say this with 100% truth from my heart and resume..I cook a thousand times better than Cracker Barrel!! Yes I’ll toot my horn when it comes to my cooking 🧑‍🍳 🍳🥔🌽🧀🥓🥩🥘🍖

  5. It used to be great. My favorite was Vermont White Cheddar. I loved that stuff. Then one day 10 or 15 years ago I bought a package and as I cut the first slice I knew something was wrong. It was kind of gooey. It was Pasteurized Process Cheese Food Product all of a sudden. Kind of like Velveeta only not as good. Disappointing.

  6. In the 1970’s it was regarded as a luxury item, and for many families, it was viewed as a Christmas only food. To be honest, it was no more special than any decent, well matured strong Cheddar, which you could pick up nowadays at any British supermarket.

  7. Cracker Barrel is a brand that I recall going back to my childhood, many, many moons ago. It’s not gourmet, but their cheddar is better than some other brands I’ve tried.

  8. This cheese is unique as it is made for entertaining where the host is looking for a bold cheddar flavor rather than a store bought cheddar. It is a great snack also. It is maybe a little bit pricier for cooking, but I have made cheese sauce to put over fried eggs at breakfast. It would also be a welcome flavor for mac and cheese.

  9. Sure.
    The packaging us shiny.
    The size is right for smaller households.
    The profile makes for nice-sized slices to go with crackers or slices of baguette.
    Other than that, it’s edible. Certainly not great cheese but it’ll work.

  10. There’s nothing wrong with Cracker Barrel cheese, it tastes okay, but nothing to get excited about.
    If you’re making chili, hard shell tacos, a grilled cheese sandwich or something that tastes good with cheddar cheese on top, Cracker Barrel is fine. Kids like it too.
    If you’re hosting a party for the Cheese Snob of the Month Club, you might not want to unleash a stick of Cracker Barrel on their sensitive taste buds. You may never live it down.
