Tribute To The Cheese Top Cob

The humble cheese top cob. Possibly one of the greatest inventions of all time? (certainly on a par with say, the wheel.)

Freshly baked they are absolutely gorgeous - especially when you get one absolutely drenched in cheese.

Currently on special offer at ASDA - 3 packs for 99p. I'm in heaven.

Is anyone else in love with the cheese top cob?

Nope, far too bitter tasting and also just lumps of white bread with a dodgy topping. I'll pass.

Absolutely - that's the best part about them - one of life's little pleasures!  Wink

The cheek!  Wink They are hand crafted fresh bread complete with a mature cheddar cheese finish! Dodgy topping!  Wink

They are lumps of factory mixed white bread with SmartPrice cheese offcuts dumped on top. And taste foul.

Each to his own, but I've tried them and hate them.

From what WhiteHatter is saying, it sounds like a cow pie with a suspicious mold on top.  Wink

Sacre bleu!

They are works of art. They are soft cobs, with a melted cheese topping. You buy them in packs of 4 at any major supermarket, but usually there's not much cheese on them.

Bakery ones are nice, but Morrisons make a mean cheese top cob. Sainsburys - okay and Asda are okay on a good day.

They usually cost around 30p-35p for a pack of 4, and I could finish that off in an afternoon!

I assume a cob is some sort of bun/bap - regional dialect type thing!

Well it's not a bap (baps are long), it's like a round bun, kind of like what you get burgers in!

That's what they're called dammit!  Wink

I believe Mancunians call them "Batches", but as there's only one I think it's a bit misleading.  Wink

To me, a bap is a bun like you mentioned. Your bap to us is a roll. But then we get into the bread debates - at work we managed 30 minutes on what a stottie was known as in different places.

From Wiki...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stottie_cake

The key words in the description are "produced in the North East of England". So it's not like it's propper food. duck

Ahh it's not a stottie then, a stottie says it's around 30cm in diameter, a cob is but 5-6cm diameter.

You also don't fill it with pease pudding!

OK, now I'm confused!!

A cob to me is the old style uncut loaf of bread.

A bap is similar to a hot dog roll but smaller.

A barm cake is like a hamburger roll, but dusted with flour.
