Newsday Tuesday: the nation's favourite cheese


Posted 4th Jul 2017

Research has revealed cheddar is the nation's favourite cheese

The study, conducted by Branston, found over a third (35 per cent) would eat cheese as a meal by itself, while one in ten confessed to consuming an entire block in one sitting (nine per cent).

Cheddar was the undoubted favourite, securing 68 per cent of the votes, with another classic, Red Leicester, climbing to second place.

Pickle was the nation's favourite choice to have alongside cheese, with two fifths picking it as the perfect partner (41%) - and one in ten indulge in the combo at least twice a week (10%).

The UK is traditional in their methods for cheese consumption, with classic cheese on toast being the nation's favourite cheesy snack, closely followed by a cheese and pickle sandwich.

Britain's top 10 cheeses are:

1 Cheddar

2 Red Leicester

3 Brie

4 Mozzarella

5 Parmesan

6 Stilton

7 Cream Cheese

8 Wensleydale

9 Camembert

10 Feta

Nisha George, Senior Brand Manager at Branston, said: "At Branston we truly understand why the nation has an enduring love for all cheeses, which is why we’ve been championing this perfect partnership for 95 years. Our research proves that once people discover the delicious combination of cheese and Branston pickle they’ll be converted for life. We’ve launched our brand-new advertising campaign ’Please The Cheese’ to celebrate all the varieties of cheese that Brits love to tuck into, alongside their favourite pickle of course."
