So… how much cheese do you think the average American eats in a year?  A WHOLE year!

Personally I absolutely LOVE cheese so it’s not hard for me to see this number being realistic… think of all of the amazing things we put cheese on!  Pizza, cheeseburgers, crackers and my beloved Mac & Cheese just to name a few!

How close was your guess?  The average American eats….  ready for this…  scroll down to find the answer!





31.4 Pounds of cheese/year!

Yum!  According to an article I read on there is a LOT of cheese consumed every year (why wouldn’t you?  Yum?).  I just thought this was so interesting!!
