It’s British Cheese Week, which can mean only one thing: you're obliged to eat as much cheddar, brie and camembert as possible. But which cheese are we crackers for?
There’s no question that we love the cheesy stuff: nothing can compare to the melting goodness of the institution that is cheese on toast.
Just in time for British Cheese Week (yes, that's a thing), the nation has voted (2,000 Brits to be exact) and the results are in.
According to pickle-maker Branston, the newly crowned king of cheese is … drum roll please … cheddar.
That’s right, cheese lovers. The humble and oh-so versatile cheese may not be the fanciest fromage to grace the board, but a whopping 80% of people surveyed said it was their favourite.
Behold the cheese hall of fame. Remember guys, we live in a democracy.
Britain’s favourite cheese:
3. Red Leicester
10. Cream cheese
They also found that 8% of people admitted to eating an entire block of cheese in one sitting.
Um, not guilty, your honour.
