National Cheese Lovers Day: What is America's Favorite Cheese?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans on average consume more than 41 pounds of cheese per year.
Cheddar was named the most popular cheese in an OnlineCasinos.com survey of more than 2,000 U.S. residents conducted earlier this month. 20 states voted it their top cheese. In second place: Pepper Jack Cheese, the top choice in 8 states. Other cheeses mentioned as favorites: Mozzarella, Colby/Monterey Jack, Gouda, Cottage, Brie and Swiss. Vermonters indulged in cheese the most, as 30.30% of respondents reported eating cheese daily.
National Cheese Lovers Day: Wisconsin Cheese Dreams Contest.
If you're dreaming about cheese, Wisconsin — one of the states that picked cheddar as its favorite in the survey — has a contest for you.
You'll create a video that answers one of these questions: “What's a Wisconsin Cheese experience you've always wanted but never thought possible?” or “How can Wisconsin Cheese make your happiest moment in 2024 even better?” make?”
Among the options suggested by the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, which is conducting the contest, is purchasing a personal loaf of award-winning Parmesan cheese for the ultimate pasta dinner. Or spend a night in a cheese cave. Another is served a seven-course, cheese-focused meal prepared by a James Beard chef at Frank Lloyd Wright's home in Spring Green, Wisc. Or maybe just a year's supply of Wisconsin cheese.
To enter the competition, create a video post titled “Paint a picture of answers” to one of the questions and upload it to the competition page or post your 15-45 second video to Instagram feeds or reels, by highlighting your cheese dream and tagging @wisconsincheese with #wisconsincheesedream.
Submit your entries by February 14, 2024. The cheese fantasies of the two grand prize winners will come true on or about June 4, 2024. 100 randomly selected participants will receive a box of goodies.
