Cheddar cheese has a permanent home in our fridge. It enhance any sandwiches such as our go-to 2 minutes egg muffin and makes filling snack. As we are not too picky about cheeses, we pick whichever brand that is on offer. This time, we decided to learn more what we eat and picked two popular brands – Kraft and Anchor- for a comparison.
