It depends on where in the US. Major cities such as NY and San Francisco have a wide variety of imported cheeses. Prices can be high. In Cleveland, the larger, major grocery stores will have imported specialty cheese. The common cheeses are American (ick), cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan (mostly pre-grated and in cans!). I just bought Jarlsberg and Gouda. The Cheshire was available for a very high price in a specialty store nine years ago, but I haven't seen it there recently. There are a number of other cheeses whose names I can't recall off the top of my head. The UK and Europe have a much wider and varied selection.
