cheese choice is yours.

Was in Lidl in Leipzig [Germany] today. They had both British and Irish cheddar cheese on the shelves. Turn the packages over & you can see they’re the same cheese, from Cookstown in County Tyrone…Northern Irish identities in action, dominating British & Irish branding?
From top: Tesco; SuperValu
Following on from your Easons/Amazon post yesterday here is another one.
My absolute favourite cheese for topping homemade burgers is smoked applewood. In Supervalu it costs 2.99 for 150g which works out at 19.93 a kilo.
Whereas over in Tesco 185g of smoked applewood cheese, imported from the UK, will cost you 1.38 or 7.46 per kilo. 6
By my calculation this product is 167% more expensive in Supervalu than it is in Tesco.
Hooray for British cheese I say.
Fancy a Nomtorious lunch today?
