Help me find the world's best cheddar cheese spread!

(Not sure if this is the right place to post this question; please redirect if you need to).

I'm addicted to good sharp cheddar cheese spread-give me a tub of cheese, some water crackers, a glass of wine and a Macintosh apple and I'm a happy woman. However, a lot of spreads I've found are pretty disappointing, and I feel like I'm still on the hunt for the perfect combination of taste and texture.

I currently like the Black Diamond Cheese Spread the best:

Tillamook is also good, though I haven't been able to find it locally in a long time. Kaukauna is my fallback choice, but I don't love it; not sharp enough and a little too elastic-textured. When I was young, Kraft made a variety called (I think) Cracker Barrel, that was packaged in a red triangular tub....haven't seen that in years.

So, what do you recommend? Bonus points if it's available online or on the West Coast in brick and mortar stores. (And recipes welcome, too-I've never been happy with any I've tried).
