    Not sure, but you could call ahead and see if Whole Foods @ their Yorkville location carries it. A few months back I purchased a few Stilton varieties, which were all wonderful.
    You could also call the Cheese Boutique and ask them.

      Regular Stilton is $35/kg at Costco.
      Danish blue is half of that, and Roquefort is $45/kg.
      They are all good, just slightly different takes on classic blue cures.
      I have no idea how lemon might be configured.

        I've purchased white stilton with lemon peel (or with mango or ginger) at Max's Market in Bloor West Village and at Alex Farm Products in St. Lawrence Market. Don't know whether prices will be any cheaper at those places those.

        For another desserty cheese, try Wensleydale, which comes in varieties that have dried blueberries or cranberries or apricots or ginger. It should be available at any good cheese shop.

          Hey! I was at Longo's this morning (York Mills) location and saw two Stilton's:
          -Lemon Zest
          -Mango & Ginger

          Both are priced at $45.90/kg.

            probably too late with my reply, but most boutique cheese stores in the GTA should have it, tho the supply is dwindling at this time of year, maybe you should try the other flavored stiltons out there, theres loads of options besides the Lemon one Loblaws lists.

              Interesting. Generally, I look for farmhouse Stilton, trying to find the most intense flavour. Haven't tried flavoured Stiltons. Who does it? The original makers or the middle foik? What does it taste like, and what other flavours are out there? Thanks.

                many options, made by Coombe Castle, english, lemons, pineapple, stem ginger, mango, these are dessert stiltons btw, not blues. Enjoy the hunt!

                  OK, now I get it. I have seen white Stilton, last Christmas, with fruit flavor embedded. Not a shred of blue veins, so it did not interest me.
                  Which Stiltons have the most intense flavor?

                    they are all so different with their unique flavorings, its really subjective, I love the ginger one, tho its harder to find.

                      hmmm my reply diddnt appear, apologies in advance if this comes up twice.

                      Im not a fan of the blue stiltons, I love my sharp cheeses, just not those ones. As for the flavored ones, its really subjective, but Id suggest hunting for the ginger one, harder to find sadly, but very nice.

                  I bought a little bit of the lemon stilton at the Cheese Emporium at Avenue Rd. & Melrose, very sweet! They had a variety of other flavours (apricot, ginger, mango etc).
