ROFL. Yes, they would declare war but they do not have enough white cloth to equip every soldier with a flag to wave.


Similar to the old French saying "Put one hand up if you are proud, and put the other hand up if you are French"

There is no such thing as US Cheddar cheese. Cheddar cheese comes from Cheddar, in England. What you've been eating is some approximation of a Cheddar produced in the Stat ... (show full quote)

It is just a pity that the use of the name Cheddar has not been protected. You now have Cheddar cheese from every country and 99% of the stuff that is sold as cheddar bears ab ... (show full quote)


At the risk of sounding really, really sad, I will correct you both on your understanding. Cheddar isn't, strictly speaking, a type of cheese. It's a process used in the making of some cheeses.

So there is Cheddar cheese, which is any cheese made in Cheddar, and there is cheddar cheese which is any cheese using the cheddaring process.

William, you are quite clearly, wrong.

I give you the following link as proof, where you can see that Cheddar cheese is indeed a type of cheese which originated in...Cheddar, England.

(Which is what those of us with brains have been saying all day on this post).

I always thought it was the manufacturing process (length of maturity, type of ingredients/spices, etc. that determined what kind of cheese it was. You learn something new everyday.

Obviously William, you are the kind of person that thinks you are always right, and the rest of the world (including Wikipedia etc) are always wrong.

A bigger man would admit he was wrong. laugh.gif

The French have been the best at protecting regional trademarks - Cognac and Champagne. If anybody tried to use those names for some foreign produce, France would declare war.


I wonder if France would have any sort of legality over champagne since it was the British that invented it.

It is clearly documented that the British imported allot of french wines at that time due the global cooling felt at this time after the romans had left, and it was the British who started taking cheap french plonk and giving it a second fermentation and then bottling it. In fact The French didnt even have the technology at this time to make a hardend glass (as in bottles) to achieve this second fermentation.

France have the rights to the name, not the product. It can only be called Champagne if it is produced in Champagne, FRA. Make an identical product somewhere else and you have to call it something else.

A lot of EU troubles have come from these things.

Eh, no. Marabou Mjölkchocklad has always satisfied the EU rules on milk chocolate. It was Blockchoklad that had to change its name since the cocoa contents was to small to call it chocolate.
