Cheddar is the bestselling cheese in the world! This stalwart has a well-rounded flavour, sharp tang and slightly crumbly texture. How popular is it?

In Canada alone, about 163,580 tonnes of cheddar cheese are made each year, which is more than 163 million kilograms, or 359 million pounds. Think of the weight of 40,000 sturdy elephants – that’s how much we love cheddar!
