Our Dutch roly-poly machine
Delicious, hard(ish) and a little bit nutty, Edam rolls like a bowling ball. He might be a gentle giant but nothing stands in his way when it comes to a pickle race! You’ll never see him without his beloved red, shiny wax jacket either. Unless, of course, he’s ripping it off for Branston.
Edam is probably the least smelly cheese of the lot.
He’s got a firm, almost rubbery texture, and kids love sinking their teeth into him.
My Favourite Branston
Only one thing will make him part with his red wax jacket: Branston Beetroot Pickle. Once it’s off, the delirious laughter begins, as he rolls around in the purple hunks crying, “Yah, yah! Super lekker!”
What grates me
Being forgotten and left to sweat in the corner of a lunchbox.
