    @shrubfish09:  The coloring in cheddar cheese is annatto seed, it’s purely asthetic and it shouldn’t change the flavor. Though personally, as someone from Wisconsin, I enjoy my brightly colored cheese.

    I see your wedding is in Kansas, is that where you’re talking about? I live in Kansas and we have a lot of yellow cheddar cheese.

    @shrubfish09:  Interesting, I wonder why you can’t find any yellow.

    White, yellow and orange (like Red Leicester) are all commonly available in UK supermarkets. I love cheese! But have given it up for lent 🙁

    We buy yellow, and it has to be super sharp!  We love it!

    Yellow is the most common, as that’s just called cheddar cheese.  White cheddar cheese (labelled with the colour) is also available though.  Marbled can also be found.  Usually the white stuff is better quality and is priced as such.  We buy both, just depending on what we’re using it for.

    Ours is pretty much all yellow in the northwest here.  But I remember in Australia I was fascinated that their cheddar is all white, and somehow it tasted better because of that!  Maybe it’s just mental, knowing that they are coloring it yellow seems more fakey?

    There is generally only yellow around here in the southwest. I mean, you can find white, but it isn’t quite as available as yellow.

    I noticed when I’ve stayed in England that white tends to be the norm. There is both, but white was much more prevalent.

    We tend to buy the higher end stuff, which does not come with added coloring. So it’s white for us. But yellow is also available in the cheese section of a regular grocery.

    If I get just plain cheddar cheese from a grocery store that’s with all the other cheese (you know, Kraft, Tillamook, and store brands) then it is yellow. If I get cheddar cheese from a specialty store like AJ’s or the more expensive cheeses in the deli section, it is usually white. I have no preference.

    I find both yellow and white with no problems here in VA (actually never had a problem in all the places I have lived).
