Old English Cheese Spread

  • 5

I came across a recipe calling for this Old English Cheese Spread and I was wondering what a substitute would be for that? I am in Alberta Canada, and have not seen this anywhere. I am kind of assuming this is a US product? Could i substitute McLaren's cold pack cheese? I am hoping no one says substitute Cheez Whiz! LOL
TIA.

  1. I live in NS and am familiar with that product (the basis of many a cheese cracker in my house!). Soften the Maclaren's cheese slightly and use that...I find it a very handy base for a beer and bacon spread I make so I am thinking it would work with yours...

        Do they still make the Imperial cheese in the red box? That's quite close too.

    1. OLD ENGLISH SPREAD IS MADE BY KRAFT FOODS, DO YOU HAVE KRAFT PRODUCTS IN CANADA?? MOST LIKLEY IF THERES A WALMART AROUND MOST LIKLEY THEY HAVE IT THERE. i LOVE THAT STUFF BUT I'M IN DALLAS AND ALOT OF STORES DONT EVEN CARRY IT AROUND HERE SO IF YOU CAN BUY PHIADELPHIA CREAM CHEESE MADE BY KRAFT YOU CAN BUY THIS. (its not by the cold cheese its usually by the pace picante sauce) , JUS TELL THE STORE MANAGER TO ORDER SOME, IF ITS NOT BY THE HOT SAUCES IN THE STORE.. THE UPC # 2100061250 , OLD ENGLISH sharp pasturized process cheese spread 5oz jar.

      1. I think the McLaren's would be a perfectly fine substitution, and you could also puree grated very sharp cheddar with a few tbsp. mayonnaise in the food processor in an amt. equal to what's required for your recipe.
