We each consume 10 pounds of cheddar cheese per year.

If you think that’s a lot, get a load of this: Cheddar accounts for roughly a third of the 33.5 total pounds of natural cheese we each devour annually—and the beloved burger topper isn’t even the big cheese in this category. In fact, cheddar has been on the decline since 2009. The new king of curds is mozzarella, with a per capita consumption rate of 11.43 pounds. “The rise of mozzarella is parallel to the rise in popularity of pizza,” says International Dairy Foods Association spokesperson Peggy Armstrong. Is there another cheese coming on strong? Well, when isn’t Gorgonzola coming on strong?
