Leicester cheese ... Pommard. Leicester cheese, usually called Red Leicester, is an English cheese, made in a similar manner to cheddar cheese, but is crumblier; it is coloured orange by adding annatto extract during manufacture. The fairly mild flavour goes well with most food and wine or beer, and is good for Welsh rarebit."

I like cheese in a whole load of diffent varieties. I like cheddar, edam, mozzarella, and more. I like solid cheese, grated cheese, sliced cheese, small individual mini cheeses, soft cheeses, cheese triangles, and spreadable cheese. I also like cheese flavoured snacks, crisps, anything! Red Leicester is my favourite type of cheese. I like how its taste isn't too strong, and isn't too mild. I also like the texture of the cheese. Whenever I am buying myself a block I like to gently squeeze it and if it has a rubbery feel to it, I'll buy it. I'm not a fan of crumbly cheeses, and the red leicester I buy is never crumbly. Generally I like to have my ... Read the complete review

Red Leicester is one of our traditional cheeses, and a very good cheese it is too - versatile, affordable and not too hard to get your hands on. Leicester is a red cheese. In practise this means it tends to be a sort of orangey colour. I gather the process for maknig it is much akin to the techniques that give us Cheddar, and this is not surprising, for the Leicester cheese is, in terms of taste, very much like Cheddar. There are subtle differences, which anyone with a delicate cheese orrientated palate will identify. Generally speaking, it tends to be a tad less salty than Cheddar. While Cheddar comes in a broad spectrum of strengths, the red Leicester ... Read the complete review

Being a Leicester girl my mother fed me this cheese at a young age, growing up I was confused why all cheese wasn't orange! Hence I would only eat Leicester cheese until I was a teen! On vacations to France I would cast a suspitious look at people ordering from the cheese cart! Red Leicester Cheese is a type of Cheddar. I like it when it's soft, and it tastes mellow like a dream on swedish crisp rolls, or melted on toast! People often complain that it's not strong enough, but it tastes very rich. The worst thing about this cheese is that it comes covered in a sort of dry, thick rind, which you have to cut off to get to the nice bit, also if you ... Read the complete review

Leicester cheese, despite being relatively mild is something I rather miss whilst cheddar, sage derby and many worldy cheeses aren't too difficult to find in Poland's capital, Red Leicester is something I haven't really bumped into. I'm not sure if it's the orange colour or the taste itself but I do occasionally pine for it in a sandwich with some pickle. From a young age, I was rather taken with the cheese, it stood out from the majority of cheeses in the shop, if colouring the cheese with annato is not done as a marketing ploy then it certainly should have been because I definitely bonded with this cheese initally based on it being a bit different. ...
