Why am I not able to buy White Stilton at my local whitely store? Thinking it was because there was no deli counter; I took myself to the nearest Tesco Extra, went to the deli counter and was told 'No because no one wants it'.
It seems ludicrous to me that I can buy White Stilton cheese with apricots or cranberries at either the deli or pre-packed and even rhubarb with champagne as pre-packed. What's the point of duplicate items? It seems you have lost sight of the basic cheese and filled your shelves knee deep in the others. What happened to full choice especially at the deli counter? Now I shall have to visit Salisbury's and while there do the rest of my shopping!
I've requested a basic White Stilton cheese over and over again at all my main supermarkets but to no avail. I think this has more to do with the manufacturers trying to create a demand for the White Stilton blends instead.
Personally I hate these blends - and I've tried a fair few in desperation! There is nothing that can beat a basic White Stilton cheese served with fresh fruit. I recently tried to purchase from a cheese manufacturer's website where they specialize in Stilton cheeses. They produce White Stilton in various sizes and I thought I was onto a winner when I found they had an online shop for their cheeses. Unfortunately they only sell their Blue Stilton’s and White Stilton blends here. Aaaaargh!
