     We happen to live within 15 minutes of three great cheese shops, and I patronize them often, but my wife prefers to buy cheese at the supermarket on her regular shopping trips. It has been my experience that few of the grocery-store cheeses can match those sold at specialty shops, but I have found a few in CT stores that are not too bad.

     Most supermarket bries seem mass produced, but Fromager d'Affinois is often better than acceptable. Many of the soft Saints (Andre, Angel, Simeon) are ok.
     Among cheddars, Cabot Extra Sharp is reliable, but the groceries never seem to have Cabot Classic Private Stock in stock.
     I'm not enthusiastic about grocery brands of blue cheeses, but their Cambozola is ok.
     And Yancey's (a N.Y. brand) has some interesting specialty cheeses, including Yancy's Fancy Finger Lakes Champagne Cheddar.

     Can you suggest a few more of the better cheeses one can find at groceries that I can attach to my wife's shopping list?
