Suffolk Cheese
(three Google hits)

vicente  •  Link

Suffolk cheese sounds better than the mousetrap cheese [even the poor mice refused to nibble]that was available during WWII.

Warrington adds the following: " This prejudice extended to the days of Pope, whose country mouse entertained his courtly guest with:
'Cheese such as men in Suffolk make,
But wished it Stilton for his sake'
(Imitations of Horace, Bk ii, Sat 6)
See also Shadwell's 'Worls' vol. iv, p.350.
