The best Canadian Cheddar is made from unpasteurized milk and matured for 24 to 27 months. It is not usually available in Canada.
The Canadian cheddar available in Canada tastes nowhere near as good as the Canadian cheddar that is exported for consumption outside the country. Cheddar available inside Canada is mostly bland and rubbery, best used for cooking.
Nonetheless, the price of the cheese remains very expensive compared to what other countries such as the UK and Australia pay for their cheddars.
