It's going to be more than that by the time we consumers get to pay for the finished goods. Let's not forget eggs have been increased multiple times the past year and are slated for more as well.

Pricematch in SK to a store in ON? I don't know that the store will really go for it... but I'm interested in how it worked for you.

You price match a store in SK in your own city…

I have no problem calling milk industry cartel because they are, but almond/cashew/walnut milk sounds like BS to me, what's even worse it is BS.

Depends on your definition of "cheese". If hydrogenated palm oil and orange food colour, with a dash of wax, is what you consider a cheese, then you're good to go. If your taste buds can discern the subtle nuances
between Roquefort and Stilton, then you should probably give this an easy pass. This "cheese" was a pass for me after the last time I bought it on sale. If I recall correctly it was 1.2kg for $3.99. I can't imagine they have improved the quality since.

lol, very true.

All of these cheap block cheeses are pretty much the same. I don't notice any difference across brands to be honest. A slight exception might be the PC Extra Old Cheddar, it actually seems to approach the quality of a real properly aged cheese. The rest are really "cheap cheeses", filler cheese used in a recipe and not a stand alone product you'd serve on a platter to people you like. Anything under a penny per gram is a decent price for these utility grade cheeses.

Zehrs in Ontario has both on sale too.... I tried to price match at No Frills but no luck as they said we don't price match member pricing. I'm pretty sure they have before. I just went across town and picked them up for the member pricing.

There should be something posted around the cashier area that outlines their price match policy and which stores they will PM against. There should also be a posting about what happens when the scanned price comes up incorrect and what they have to honour...ie free item if under $10 and a percentage off if over $10 etc...

Agreed 100%. These cheap cheeses are not Balderson 2year aged cheddar calibre! Face With Tears Of Joy

That PC one comes close. I don't know who makes it but it's probably close to 2 year old from the way it tastes and crumbles. Costco carries Balderson and what appears to be a re-wrapped Balderson that's decent. They also carry an old cheddar made in Canada, Winnipeg maybe, that's good. They're quality inexpensive cheeses but I think they're closer to 2 cents per gram on sale.

It's too bad Pine River closed. They made a 7 year old cheddar that was so good. It's hard to find good local cheese here in Ontario anymore. I guess Quebec still has a decent cheese industry.

Yes they should for sure... The cashier may have well been right and I think many in the past just let go but this time it was no

Both my local RCSS and No Frills have both of these posted.

I have never tried the PC old but will keep in mind for the future. Given the size of Loblaw/PC brand I'm sure they are using one of the few large dairy (cartel) cheese makers. I saw an aged white cheddar at Costco the other day and it was from a brand I had never heard of before from Manitoba so I guess that's the Winnipeg one you mention.
