What is your favourite Christmas cheese

Cheeseboard cheese Christmas

£2bn to be spent on cheese this Christmas


A survey commissioned by Arla, the UK’s largest cheese producer, has found that we
will spend nearly £40 each on cheese over the festive season.

The survey of 2,000 consumers also found that eight out of ten cheeses on the all-important cheeseboard will be British this year.

The ultimate 2018 Christmas cheeseboard would be made up of the following ten cheeses: Cheddar, Stilton, Brie, Red Leicester, Camembert, Wensleydale, Wensleydale with Cranberries, Lancashire, Cheshire and Double Gloucester.

Cheese-eating differs by region with one in five people in Yorkshire eating Wensleydale with a slice of Christmas cake. I remember being told this a few years back and going Noooo then trying it and 😍

One in ten of us love a bit of deep fried Brie with cranberry sauce and four percent will fry some Stilton with leftover Christmas pudding.
