“I picked up some Wyke Vintage aged cheddar at my local Costco and it is honestly one of the best things I’ve ever tasted.

“In the US, we normally get this soft, waxy orange-colored cheddar that comparatively has very little cheese flavor.

“This UK cheddar is white, has a deep, rich flavor, and kind of crumbles like a good parmigiano.

“UK does not f*** around with its cheese. I wonder what else I’ve been missing out on.”

Other Reddit users chimed in to praise food from the UK, despite the bad reputation it often has.

One user said: “The UK is one of the great cheese producing countries, but it does often get forgotten about because of France and Italy.”

Another commented: “I honestly find it strange that British cuisine is such a laughing stock globally, we genuinely have loads of really nice and unique dishes.

“Cheeses are great, our sauces are great, the way we do pies and pastries is totally different to how they’re done in France for example. Our sweets and snacks are great too!”

Another fan similarly added: “Yes cheddar is often looked down on compared to more traditional cheese varieties from France or other parts of Europe, but I think cheddar is hugely under appreciated, and compared to US cheeses (which are basically just congealed goo) UK cheddar is on an ivory tower.”
